We train puppies using solutions that are effective, useful, and provide them with the skills necessary to be a successful member of your family. The result is a dog that is well behaved, happy, and fun to be with!
We train our puppies in housebreaking, crate training, relieving themselves in one particular area (of the yard, etc), driveway walks on the leash, and simple obedience commands (sit, stay, lie down).
No negative reinforcement types of training are used here. Puppies should NEVER be punished. We use purely positive training; giving verbal clues, treats, and toys to modify behavior and correct bad habits.

Dawn and Carl Hollister have trained over 50 individual puppies in things like leash training, going to bathroom in one single area, general obedience (sit, stay, down, come), and to learn basic behavior corrections such as: No! (jumping, chewing, peeing on carpet, etc); Go Pee; Yuck! (for eating poop); No Bite; Outside, (letting puppy outside to pee/poop), and others. Puppy training can last from 5 to 10 weeks long, at one hour per week.
