Is there anything else we should know about you and your dog training business?

Less Leash, More Control is our byline-- our 'naked' philosophy is that a dog should be managed, ultimately, by voice.

A naked dog is an educated dog. It knows its place in the world. By teaching your dog that he can rely on you to be their leader, you'll find that your dog will love you for it because he knows his place in the family social system.

When that relationship matures, you and your dog will enjoy the richness that only a dog can bring.

We also provide Homestays for Dogs
