HAVING TRAINING OR BEHAVIOR ISSUES?

Whether you're just bringing a new puppy or adult dog home, or have a dog with some behavior challenges, you might find that adorable dog you love does some less-than-adorable things. If your dog's having accidents in the house, chewing up your best shoes, reacting badly to strangers or other dogs on leash, or has trouble staying alone, Capitol Area Dog Training and Behavior Consulting offers positive solutions designed for your individual home and family.

Share your training and behavior goals, and we can:
