"It's More than Obedience, it's a Relationship"

About Us

I am a behavior consultant and trainer with over ten years of experience with dogs and their families. Over the years I have worked with family pets, service companions, rescued animals and dogs from animal control. During my college years, at Bucknell University, I earned a four year degree in Animal Behavior.

Now I enjoy working with families in their homes.
My philosophy is to teach, encourage and motivate families to achieve their goals. A personal goal of mine is to help each dog become behaviorally healthy. I believe in teaching our dogs to listen to our guidance, and also make the correct decisions on their own.

Herbert Hartl Co-Owner & Boarding Manger

As this is at home training, all dogs are interacting with our children.
