The dog training world is a bit of a jungle, and unfortunately you can’t trust everybody out there to share good advice. You wouldn’t go to a dentist who hasn’t updated their tools and knowledge since 1960, right? Here are some links to sources that use modern methods and give accurate information.

It takes a village to care for a dog! And it’s best when that village also shows the same respect toward your dog that we have. Here are some services trust!

There are also many helpful tools and products that we recommend for training and living with a dog. Check these out!

As a small business ourselves, we know the importance of community support and patronage. These are non-dog-related small businesses we whole-heartedly recommend. Please consider giving them some ❤️ too!
