The videos shown below are of students in training or our own Dixi in training.  We try to keep them as up to date as possible by putting current students at the top of the page.  Feel free to watch all of the amazing dogs at work.

Dixi working her Drug Detection off leash.

Look at Paugus now! 
Here is Lucy working off leash on the Rail Trail behind our training facility.  She was able to get to this point in only 2 weeks!  What an amazing girl.

Here is Dixi training with her e-collar on the Rail Trail.

Here is a glimpse at our kennel room where the dogs stay during boot camps and resident training programs during the day.  We believe that the dog should be at peace between training sessions since training can be stressful for some dogs.  The room is set with dimmed lights, classical music created by a dog behaviorist and a pheromone dispenser of a whelping mother. 
Here is a short clip of Tucker, the bull dog! He came to us because he could not walk on a leash properly. He was probably one of the worst pullers we have had come in to us in a long time. He had learned to pull on a padded back clip harness and became 50 pounds of pure chest muscle. The day of his evaluation he pulled so bad that his nylon leash was cutting into my fingers.  Look at him after a few days of training!!

Talk about distraction training!  Here is Denali working his commands at PetCo. He came into us for training due to his "freak outs" in public when he encountered people or other dogs.  and I mean FREAK OUTS! This video was taken one week into training.
