Our Philosophy

It’s time for a good dog trainer Baltimore. For most of us, when we get a dog, we have an image in our mind of how great life is going be: playing fetch, strolling down the street enjoying a lovely day, nighttime cuddles on the sofa watching your favorite show, a happy face when you get home no matter how dark your day was….it’s gonna be great! And then reality happens….your dog’s favorite game is running away and having you chase them, you have arms of steel from water skiing behind your dog who is dragging you to another dog, a person, a tree, a squirrel, etc. Your favorite show gets interrupted because your dog needs your attention NOW, or there are strangers walking past the house and the world needs to know this! You brace yourself before you walk through the door to endure the love mauling you’re about to get not to mention what happens when guests come to the house. I have plenty more examples but I hope you get the picture that you’re not alone.

Most owners I’ve spoken to are at their wits end not understanding how to communicate their needs to their dog. They give them the best food, plenty of exercise, enough toys for a 100 dogs, lots of love, all the things a dog could ever need and still their dog continues with frustrating, sometimes dangerous shenanigans. It makes for a very unbalanced relationship. Thus, my motto ‘Better Relationships from Better Communication’. The more black and white you make things, the easier it is for your dog to understand and follow through on. It really is that simple (most of the time).
