Training Assistance Program™

The goal of our Training Assistance Program (TAP) is to “tap” into your dog’s potential through individualized training.  TAP™ provides one-on-one sessions throughout the day along with three potty breaks that consist of training sessions where our focus is loose leash walking.  This is a program for puppies and dogs 20 weeks and older.  Each puppy or dog will receive a training plan depending on the goals of the client.  There are foundational tracks where we focus on confidence building for the shy dog, impulse control for the spontaneous dog, obedience for many dogs, and/or TAP & Play™ for dogs who need additional assistance with their dog-on-dog social skills.  Once completing the necessary foundational tracks puppies and dogs can progress to an advanced track such as agility or therapy dog training.
