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

    We train a dog using its own natural instincts, intelligence and desire to please -- without a shock collar! 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.

From my very first phone call to bringing my puppy home from training, my experience with The Dog Knowledge could not have been better. Debbie Lange and her staff have a wealth of knowledge and experience that was such a reassurance to a new puppy owner like myself.

They took my 7 month old puppy who was very high spirited, as well as skittish, and returned to me a happy, confident puppy that can follow instructions, stay on her place bed, heel on a walk at whatever pace I choose, interact positively with other dogs and generally be a joy to have around. They even taught her to sleep in her crate without any protest! The best part is that all of this was done without the use of a shock collar!

While at The Dog Knowledge my puppy was so happy and well taken care of, and they kept me posted on her progress and well being through emails, pictures and even a video. When we picked her up, Debbie and Jeff spent more than 2 hours teaching us how to continue with our puppy’s training. Furthermore, since I have had her home, they have followed up with an at home visit, and I have taken her (and me) to The Dog Knowledge for a little refresher!

I can’t say enough about my experience with this facility, and although we live more than 90 miles away, it is well worth any travel inconvenience to have had such a wonderful experience.
