TO PROVIDE AN EDUCATIONAL, ENTERTAINING, FRIENDLY, EFFICIENT AND INNOVATIVE EXPERIENCE OF UNCOMPROMISING QUALITY THAT MEETS THE DOG TRAINING NEEDS OF THE ENTIRE FAMILY, BUILDING BALANCED RELATIONSHIPS THROUGH CLEAR COMMUNICATION!
The Team at Total Dog! is comprised of some of the top professionals in the dog community. Looking at the voids that are present in modern dog training, the Total Dog! Team set out to fill those voids and create a system that is predicated on the individual needs of the dog and owner.
We do not rely on any one method of dog training, as we believe that with dogs being as unique as they are, that we can best serve them and their owners by being able to use any methods/tools in a safe and humane manner. Getting dogs to be more cognitive than reactive is one of the cornerstones to our approach and essential when trying to develop a two-way system of communication! We want to teach you how dogs process information, what their needs are, and how we can help to bring balance back into their lives, which of course builds a fulfilling relationship with you!
When looking for dog training information, tips and resources, look no further than Total Dog! Dog training should be fun. Dog training should be easy. Dog training shouldn’t really feel like…Dog Training! We help you to get the most out of your relationship with your dog. Put Structure, Exercise and NATURAL principles of training into a rewarding relationship. Dogs have long been called Man’s Best Friend…we show you how to return the favor!
