Our furry companions are an integral part of our lives and ensuring they are well-behaved and happy is paramount. We now offer limited training sessions with Stephanie Ruggerone whose certifications include Professional Dog Trainer-Knowledge Assessed, Fear Free Animal Trainer, and Human Animal Bond. Additionally she has over 30 years experience raising service dogs. She works with a targeted approach to transform your dog into the well-mannered and contented companion you’ve always envisioned. Give us a call if your dog would benefit from help with any of the following:

  • Jumping Up: Tired of your dog’s exuberant greeting that involves a little too much jumping? Training will teach dogs appropriate greetings, curbing the jumping habit while still preserving their enthusiasm.

  • Calm Greetings: A composed and controlled welcome is not only pleasant for you but also for your visitors. Training will emphasize teaching your dog how to greet guests calmly, making social interactions enjoyable for everyone.

  • Leash Control: Walking your dog should be a pleasant experience, not a struggle. Our leash control training focuses on teaching your dog to walk politely on a leash, making your daily walks a breeze and enhancing the bond between you and your canine companion.

  • Desensitization: Is your dog fearful or anxious in certain situations? Our desensitization training is designed to help dogs overcome fears and anxieties by gradually exposing them to the stimuli in a controlled and positive manner. This promotes confidence and a more relaxed demeanor.

  • Environmental Enrichment: Dogs thrive on mental stimulation and variety in their environment. Our training services include guidance on creating an enriched living space for your dog, incorporating activities and challenges to keep their minds sharp and engaged.

  • Dog/Cat Interaction: If you have both dogs and cats at home, harmonious coexistence is crucial. You’ll learn to foster positive interactions between dogs and cats, creating a peaceful environment where your pets can comfortably share the same space.

Our Canine Training Services is about cultivating a positive relationship with your dog. Whether it’s addressing jumping tendencies, refining leash manners, or ensuring peaceful cohabitation with other pets, Stephanie aims to enhance the overall well-being of your furry friend.
