We are professional dog trainers specializing in behavior modification.

We solve behavior issues quickly and easily. Whether it's aggression, leash reactivity, lunging on walks, shyness, fearfulness, or over exuberance, we've got you covered. We address your dog's state of mind, resulting in a calmer, more relaxed, happy dog who is a pleasure to live with.

No matter the issues, you can have your very own Dream Dog!

"Dream Dogz are the best. They really helped me with Parris's resource guarding. He now eats side by side with my other dog. He has such good manners. He walks right beside me without a leash. He knows no means no. He chills out. No more counter surfing, no more jumping on guests and me. And the best part is he is still his happy goofy self, only the 6+ version. All thanks to Dream Dogz. Nobody likes kids with no manners, kids who are bullies and pushy. Same with dogs. Dream Dogz trained my dog and in the process taught me how to be a better and more responsible pet parent. I recommend them to everyone." - Camille & Parris (4-wk board & train)
