Do you wish daily life with your dog or puppy was easier? That’s our goal, too.

Training a Dog on Stairs

We aim to provide you and your dog with the necessary skills and training, so that you might have the most positive interactions together, wherever life takes you. 

Imagine enjoying your dog while… on neighborhood walks, relaxing in your home, hiking on trails, visiting with family or friends, checking out the local farmer’s market and so many other activities that you may have avoided in the past, due to your dog’s behavior.

Meet Colleen Campbell, B.S., CPDT-KA

Colleen became interested in dog behavior and training after adopting her dog, Buck, a fearful and reactive young dog. Colleen’s interest in helping other dogs and their owners grew as she saw, first-hand, the impact that positive, reward-based training methods had on Buck’s and her quality of life. Colleen is committed to helping dog owners realize the positive interactions they can develop and restore with their dogs.

“As a Veterinarian, I take care of dogs from puppyhood through their senior years. But when I got my first puppy in over 20 years, I decided to enroll in Puppy Kindergarten. The classes strengthened my (and my daughter’s) bond with our new puppy, and gave us confidence in training and dealing with his unwanted behaviors in a positive manner. We loved the classes so much that we enrolled in additional classes for him, and repeated the Kindergarten with our next puppy, Thanks Colleen for helping us navigate through puppyhood!”
Adrienne Rodgers, DVM

“I have a “feisty, spirited” flat coat retriever who gets very excitable around other dogs and people making him difficult to walk on a leash. Colleen was patient and kind doing behavioral exercises with us, even bringing her own dog and son along to help in the process. My dog is still a work in progress but Colleen’s guidance was certainly helpful to me.”

Jill

"Colleen is a first-rate dog trainer who relies solely on positive reinforcement. She is kind and gentle and my dogs Lucy and Ellie adore her. She worked with us to improve loose-leash walking skills (while I walk the two simultaneously) and also addressed Lucy's leash aggression. I followed her training instructions and our walks are now so much more pleasurable! I can also now walk Lucy by other dogs without any reactivity."
