Doug, co-owner and nationally certified dog trainer, has enjoyed working, hiking and playing with dogs most of his life. He is the one to talk to regarding specific behavior problems with your dog. Puppies need to learn basic skills while they are young to prevent ongoing behavior problems. He enjoys working with young puppies and their owners to help facilitate the basic commands-sit, stay, come, down, off, leash walking, etc. Learning the basics will provide a groundwork for a positive, enjoyable lifelong experience for both dog and owners.
