Ain’t Misbehaving Dog Training is a reward-based training service dedicated to improving the lives of dogs and their people since 1999.

How We Work

Working together, we help you observe, learn and understand your dog’s behavior and give you the tools to effectively work with your dog.

The best way to develop a positive training relationship is through observation, clear communication, trust, kindness and understanding of both human and dog behavior.

Reward based training is science based. It is a dialogue that strengthens the bond between human and dog.

Dogs are individuals with unique personalities and senses of humor. Training should be fun for both you and your dog.

Services

Obedience Classes

Through developing a strong foundation in basic skills and impulse control, you help your dog become socially appropriate, confident and able to self regulate. Small group classes are offered for lots of individual attention.
