We have spent years developing effective tools and ways of communicating designed to strengthen the bond between dogs and their human companions. Our Method focuses on energy, body language and developing ones timing and effectiveness on-leash. You can learn more about our philosophy here.

This three-day progressive workshop is ideal for the beginner and experienced dog handler alike.

Throughout the workshop, we'll progress with various on-leash exercises and drills specifically designed to build trust, boundaries, and stronger communication between you and your dog. By the end of this workshop, you'll have the tools to continue working with your canine companion at home in order to achieve a harmonious and respectful life together.
