We can train in that specific location and address leash walking and more! Do you want to hit The Village for lunch or a coffee shop around Town Center Plaza, but your dog is too reactive? We can treat reactivity directly where it occurs!
We want to help you experience all that there is to offer with your dog throughout Kansas City. The ability to craft each dog training program around each dog and every owner’s needs comes from our local training team’s unmatched knowledge and experience. Led by our three Kansas City dog training experts—a Ph.D. level Certified Applied Animal Behaviorist, a Certified Dog Behavior Consultant, and a Ph.D. candidate and Board Certified Behavior Analyst—we only incorporate current applied animal behavior research into each and every program.
