Dog training is what we do - it's the dog lover's dream job. We back the love we have for dogs with knowledge and experience. We are passionate about helping people and their pets reach their training goals - whether that be having the perfect family pet, or laying the groundwork for a therapy dog. We love what we do - and our clients tell us it shows.
Before and after training, we are there for you. Our programs offer unlimited free follow-ups, meaning after you train with us - you'll never be alone on the path to reaching your goals. If problems arise after training, we are there to fix them.
Many board and train programs offered by other trainers keep dogs in kennels or runs for the majority of their stay - taking them out to train them and putting them back. We strongly believe to create the perfect pet, we have to be able to truly live with the dog. Dogs in our programs live in the home environment with the trainer and her dogs - learning skills and identifying problems that other trainers might miss while keeping the dog mostly in a kennel or run.
Our mission is to create stress-free, loving, and functional relationships between dogs and their families. Our aim is to shape dogs into wonderful companions who have strong foundations and balance.
Before and after training, we make strong connections with our clients and work hard to be there when you need us - the most important thing to us is a long-lasting functional relationship, not instant results that fade away quickly.
Trainer Marissa Spruell is experienced with numerous breeds, ages, and sizes of dogs - you can be confident that your dog will leave with a sound foundation and solid skills.
Our pup just returned home from a 30-day Board and Train session and we couldn't be happier with the results! Marissa did an incredible job transforming our wild and reckless dog into a well-behaved and trained pet. Our 80 lb black lab is now a happier and more content dog thanks to all of her hard work. Marissa built a strong foundation for us to work off of and has made reintroducing him to our home an easy transition.Madeleine A.
Marissa was highly recommended by our vet and it is easy to see why! Her positive training through her Board and Train program totally transformed our Golden Retriever from a nipping/jumping puppy our kiddos were afraid of into a well trained, obedient, happier, appreciated member of our family! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU, Marissa!Emily K.
Marissa is a terrific trainer! She takes the time to listen and observe and then takes all that information and puts together a training approach that really works for the dog and handler. Highly recommend!Terry O.
Marissa is an amazing trainer! My dog Mattie and I benefited greatly from everything she taught us. She was very encouraging and patient with Mattie and I and it made the training easy and fun. We were able to learn everything from waiting patiently to turning off the lights. It was certainly a great experience and I would recommend her training to everyone!Jenny L.
