why We put training first
We believe that every dog deserves a chance to learn and to live and we know that every dog has the potential to be AMAZING. Dog training is the key to establishing communication between dog and owner. If a dog doesn’t understand your language, it’s impossible to expect them to be able to follow directions or know that a behavior is unwanted. We believe in giving every dog the opportunity to learn so that they can live as a trusted, well-loved and valued family member. When the proper tools and guidance are in place, an incredible transformation begins to happen—dog owners develop a bond with their dog they never thought possible.
Our Training Approach
We don’t just train dogs empty obedience commands but instead teach them to make good choices on their own, to be able to access a calm state of mind and to balance their energy on their own. Our training approach is equally about training dogs and dog owners. It’s just as important that dog owners learn how to lead thier dogs as it is teaching dogs to follow.
Any Dog, Any Level
We will train any dog regardless of breed, size, age or history. We work with dogs from puppies, to adults and help with every stage from general manners and potty training, to walking politely on a leash, up to complete behavior modification like working with dogs who have aggression or what owners would describe as “out of control” behavior. We are committed to meeting every dog right where they are at and provide the right tools and skills they need to become happy, well-behaved family members.
As opposed to open-to-the-public dog day care operations, Dog Gone Amazing is only open to clients who have completed at least two dog training sessions. We believe that every dog deserves a chance to learn and to live freely. Training gives them the opportunity to live a life where they are a trusted family member – in turn giving them more freedom and less frustration. Read more about our philosophy here.
The limited number of dogs we admit at any one time also ensures that our dog trainers are able to offer appropriate amounts of attention to each of our guests. We know your dog is part of your family, and we aim to offer you the peace of mind that he or she is having a doggone good time in a safe, healthy and social environment.

We, humans, love to “anthropomorphize” dogs. That means we give them human traits, emotions, and intentions. It's the only way most of us know how to relate to them and connect with them. We love them like they’re another human. So, we have conversations with them,...
