A dog is NOT aggressive, they are having an emotional response to something in the environment. 

We will collect a thorough history of your dogs training, health, socialization, and incident report. 

This information will help us with your training goals,  and develop a customized and successful training plan.

Reactivity and aggression are behaviors, not personality traits.

The results after working with underdogs!

I cannot stress how integral of a role they played in helping me raise my German shepherd puppy. My puppy is still learning, as I am as well, but everywhere we go my puppy gets compliments on how sweet and well behaved she is! Their approach to training is supported by science and it’s force free. I’m super grateful for reaching out to them for their services! I highly highly recommend them!

Jill and Richie are seriously the best! 


ill is absolutely the best. She is not just training your dog. She is teaching you to understand your dog and communicate better. We have 2 dogs. One has been adopted very recently and needed some help. Jill was so patient and so kind with her. At some point she worked with both of our dogs. Now our dogs get along better, behave better and we could not be happier.

I would have given 10 stars if I could.


Ginger has progressed so much over the course of the sessions we've had, but so have my partner and I as dog owners! It's clear that Jill cares not just about her work during our sessions, but the continued quality of life for the dogs and owners she works with.

Jill's been incredible and our dog absolutely loves her.


  • While punishment CAN decrease behavior, it is a short-term fix that will lead to a fallout and confusion for our animals and humans.

  • Punishment is suppressing the behavior, creating fear, and not allowing our learners to express their emotions. 

  •  What does punishment do to their mental state? You’re making our dogs anxious and fearful!

Why we DON’t YOU use punishment?

  • We pride ourselves on our educaction and our many certifications, making us the most qualified to help dog parents like you and your dog. 

  • The dog training industry isn’t regulated; anyone can say they are a dog trainer with ZERO education. 

  • The damage I’ve seen done to animals in the name of training is horrible and often irreversible. It’s harmful and unethical.

Why DOES education and certifications matter?

  • You can book a discovery call on the top of our page. We handle MOST training questions in our consultations and training sessions; we do not train via email or phone.

Can we talk on the phone or text questions?

  • We are not in the business of fixing dogs, only in the business of helping humans to help their dogs.

  • Behavior is complicated and nuanced; there is also no way of giving any timeline or promise to any behavior change.

  • We are here to help; we can promise that. If, after a consultation, we believe that behavior is something we cannot handle, we will refer to someone more qualified to handle your case, often a veterinary behaviorist. 

How many sessions will my dog need to be fixed?
