Achieve:

At Achieve, we understand that training your dog can be an overwhelming and daunting task. We are here for you! We will guide you through every step of your journey with your companion. Our goal is to help you achieve your dreams; nothing is out of reach!

Our Philosophy 

We believe firmly in a Force Free approach to dog training. During the first day of your training class, you will hear "Your dog will always do whatever behavior he finds the most rewarding." That is the ultimate truth in all living creatures- We are driven to activities that we find rewarding. You may disagree with your dog's choice of rewarding behavior, and we are here to help!  We are a science based training facility and specialize in operant behavior modification using clicker training.  At Achieve, it is our goal to help you understand how to shape better behavior in your dog by using a positive reinforcement heavy program. All training is done on a flat collar/martingale and flat lead- we do not promote the use of training collars. Have questions about our methods? Please feel free to send us an email!
