Education for dogs

Training for people

Let's Begin

A Holistic Approach to Raising a Dog.

From 12 week old puppies to senior rescue dogs, I have worked with them all. Using deference training, I will identify the driving reason your dog is acting the way he or she is acting and create a custom training program to create harmony in the household.
There is an easier way.

Puppy Training

With seven in-home sessions, your puppy will learn basic manners, crate training, bite inhibition, rules around games/ toys, and simple commands/ obedience. Your family will learn how to be the leader in your dog’s eyes and maintain harmony in the household.

1 or 3 Session Program

These 60-minute individual training sessions are for minor behavior modifications and training. If you have a rambunctious dog, shy dog, bossy dog, or want to improve your dog’s daily routines, I’m here to help and 3 sessions are a great start!

Virtual Dog Training

COVID-19 has changed the world and the way dog training support can be provided. With a 45 minute virtual training session, Fernando can give effective strategies and drills to help address your current dog training dilemma. Held through FaceTime or Zoom a virtual training session can get your pack on the right track towards harmony.

- Fernando, Trainer / Owner

We liked Fernando's training theory that to instill positive behaviors, the goal is to encourage the dog to want to choose the desired behaviors of looking to us for approval through positive reinforcement.

Fernando is awesome at treating all areas of a dogs day to day routine, he helped me identify issues I didn't even know we were having!!

I'm so grateful that Fernando has taught me the skills to be able to handle my sweet fearful dog Bella and highly recommend canine education.

Words can't describe how amazing Fernando is as a trainer. He equipped us with all the tools we needed to raise a very well-mannered and behaved boxer puppy.
