Why are dogs the only pets that learn basic manners for the household??

Most dog owners hire a trainer or enroll in some sort of class for training but ALL pets can and should be taught. Our experiences with over 170 species makes us a great training match for your pet.

Cats, ferrets, rabbits, goats, llamas, cows, chickens, pigs, turtles, fish, even hermit crabs! Not only is it great mental stimulation and fun for the pet but it makes both your lives easier and is a great crowd pleaser to show off to your friends.

Crate training, proper exposure to sights, sounds, people, and low stress for veterinary procedures, nose touch, sit, leash walking (cats, ferrets, pigs, etc), come, stay, leave it, take it, lie down, relax on a bed, step up, even agility (for fish too!).

***We do not see pets at the time for behavior modification such as feather picking, biting, or aggression.

Please Note: We will only work with legal pets. Please check Federal laws as well as city ordinances. Some pets are legal in certain cities and illegal in others. Be A Responsible Pet Owner!

Proper exposure to sights, sounds, people, etc, nose touch, sit, leash walking, come, proper greetings, stay, leave it, take it, door manners, emergency u-turns, lie down, relax on a mat, and more!
