Professional Training & Rehabilitation
Specializing in rescue rehabilitations and reassimilation, we use positive reinforcement and loving redirection rather than negative motivation and stern corrections. Our methods include and involve owner participation and education. After all, you have to live with your pet and your pet with you.
Most pets have adapted to our human lifestyle admirably. We expect them to eat, sleep, play and use the potty on command, and they have done quite well on these adaptations. But some have not. They have resisted their environment and have been unable to match their human's lifestyle. These are not 'bad dogs'. They just have not fit into the accepted mold.
This is where we come in. Working with you to discover your needs, we can help your pet adjust and 'fit in' to your family's requirements. Owner/Trainer Niqi, has worked extensively on 'impossible' dogs both here and in the Philippines on rescue missions from dog fighting rings, to street dogs with attitudes. Her experiences can help...
Meet Ryder, a 6 year old rescue, who was wild and free his entire life, but now enjoys the comfort of a home, and spends everyday in dog daycare to burn off his endless energy. Ryder works as a therapy dog to children and seniors when he is not working in the daycare!
Puppy and Beginner Training
Puppies are a lot of work, but the rewards from setting a good foundation for your pup, are immeasurable. We offer group puppy classes to give your puppy a chance to socialize with other dogs, and give you a chance to learn in a group setting and share your experiences with other puppy owners.

While this rescue from India does not get to participate in play dates with other dogs in dog daycare, Russell is more than happy being "king of the castle" on his own. His rehab is ongoing, as he is fearful of every sound and new encounter. Life had to change to accommodate this special boy, but the love he gives to his family and his loyalty to them, cannot be traded for anything.
Rehabilitation and Integration
Owner/Trainer Niqi, is an advocate of rescue and adoption. Many of our rescued dogs come with hangups and other behavioral issues, and need help adapting to a new life, learning how to be a dog again, or recovering from past experiences. Dogs are forgiving creatures, who sometimes need a little help forgetting. During our rehabilitation program, we will spend time not only with your dog's integration into your home, but also with your integration into their lives.
