Candy is the best! She took a dog considered "stubborn with a streak of dog" and turned her into a well behaved, model citizen!!!

Training Services

We provide in-home dog training in the Lakeland, FL area so that your program is completely customized to your needs and your schedule. Every dog is different, therefore every training program must be different. 


Whether your pup needs a few basic manners, or a complete obedience program, we will work together to determine the program for you, so that you can be involved every step of the way. 

We believe in teaching YOU to understand how to communicate with your dog.

Good Dog Program

Do you have a dog that bolts out the door? Does he bark at every stray leaf that flutters by? Does he steal food from the counter?

With our Good Dog Program, you and your dog will learn together how to eliminate these bad behaviors.

  • Loose leash walking ("Let's Go)

  • Commands for in-home basic annoyances including: Quiet, Off, Leave it, Drop it, Come.
