Dog Trainer - Sean Savage

Our private, in-home training options allow us to build your training program around your life and dog’s needs. We take your goals then develop and implement a training plan for your pup.

From puppy training to addressing behavioral concerns, we custom-tailor every aspect to provide the best results for you and your dog. We provide applicable, real life training and work with your dog in your home, neighborhood, favorite parks and restaurants or trails!

Along with training your dog, we ensure our clients are trained to effectively communicate with their pup. This allows you to continue bonding with your dog and maintain training even after your program is completed. This is a crucial part of all of our programs, whether it is puppy training or addressing serious behavioral concerns. Let us help you achieve your dog’s best life!
