Our Philosophy

At Top Dog Obedience, we believe that a happy partnership with your dog begins with you taking the leadership role.  We do not train with treats or clickers, but instead use appropriately timed leash corrections followed by lots of love and affection in order to teach your dog which behaviors are wanted and which behaviors are not allowed. 


We teach simple "back to basics" training methods that get results, but there is no magic or quick fix in dog training. No dog is un-trainable, and the only limit to what you can accomplish with your dog is how much time and effort you are willing to put in. With your time, patience, and consistency both you and your dog develop a happier, healthier relationship that you can enjoy for years to come.
