Canine Counselor, Inc

Although the company name is Canine Counselor, we consult and train the  human family as much as the dog to obtain optimal results.  We tailor our training methods according to the individual dog's and family's needs.  We combine improving the dog-human relationship with obedience training such as sit, down, stay and place. We integrate exposure to real life situations and other dogs into our training programs.  We strive to maintain a calm training environment for your dog's relaxation.
