• IF IT CAN BE TRAINED, WE CAN TEACH IT!

    We train a dog using its own natural instincts, intelligence and desire to please. TDK Trainers use this drive, along with behavioral science and advanced knowledge of how a dog thinks, to teach dogs new skills and great obedience through the joy of success rather than the fear of corrections.

The Dog Knowledge is THE BEST place for dogs to play, train and board.

I rescued a dog that had been physically abused and then abandoned. Struggling on her own for survival created some food and toy possession issues when she got around other dogs. I called several dog training facilities seeking help, and The Dog Knowledge was the only place where my call didn’t go straight to a voice mail system. After talking extensively with Debbie, we agreed that my dog would benefit from the one-month residency training program. Here we are a couple of years later, and my dog has retained everything she learned in the course. TDK is absolutely her most favorite place to be in the entire world!!! She is overjoyed to “go play at school,” as we call it, when we take her for daycare. The staff is very attentive. They take the time to get to know dogs individually and place them in cohesive play groups. My dog has several “best friends” at TDK, and I know she is a much happier, more socially adjusted dog as a result.

In addition to their marvelous training facilities and daycare fun, their newly installed swimming pool rocks! You’d think that dogs inherently know how to swim, but that is not always the case. They can fear being around water just as much as humans, so TDK now offers swim lessons. How awesome is that?! My dog loves the pool. I cannot praise Debbie and her staff enough for their genuine love and demonstrated affection toward every single dog that enters their door!!!

My 8-year-old nephew recently went with me to pick up my dog from daycare, as he had never been there before and wondered what TDK was like. After we walked in the front door, he looked around and asked if it was really a place for dogs. I told him that it really was, and he replied, “They have some good cleaners here. It doesn’t smell like dogs at all.” I’d never thought about it before, but he was absolutely right. Kudos for their excellence in cleanliness, too! We love everything about The Dog Knowledge!!!!!!!!
