Help your good dog become great!

  • Loose Leash Walking – no more lunging and reacting!
  • Sitting or lying down politely – no more jumping up on people!
  • Staying on a “place” – no more rushing the door, or counter surfing when you aren’t looking!
  • Polite behavior – even when guests arrive!
  • Socially appropriate behavior around other dogs, or people, in public

Note: No amount of training or work sessions by a professional will supersede what you teach your dog in everyday life. For this reason, a dog’s behavior and conduct is a responsibility that ultimately rests with the owner.

What people are saying about us

I have known Elisa for over a decade. Her dog training skills are excellent and she is always continuing her skills with training for herself. She not only trains the dogs but also educates their owners which helps create a great partnership and bond between owner and their dog.


We are so pleased with the results from our training with Elisa. Our puppy made such great strides in such a short period of time. Elisa was wonderful and answered all of our questions and helped us tremendously. She went above and beyond and you can tell she cares about you and your dog and having them be a great family member. We couldn’t be more grateful to her expertise.


We want to thank you for the training you provided Bella. It exceeded our expectations. The results were amazing. Bella continues to learn and improve every day. Thanks again!
