When class isn’t quite enough
Is your dog not quite ready for group class? Perhaps she’s afraid of or unhappy about the presence of other dogs, or too unruly to comfortably handle in public?
Or is your dog a lead monster—going a bit berserk whenever she sees another dog while on lead?
We can help.
We specialize in helping with:
- Leash reactivity—pulling, lunging, growling, barking at other dogs while on lead
- Impulse control for a calm, relaxed dog at home
- Shyness and fear around other dogs
- Shyness and fear around new people

Mat Potato TrainingFor a calm dog who’s easy to live with
What’s a mat potato?
A mat potato is a dog who willingly, calmly hangs out on his mat or bed while you entertain guests, prep dinner for the family, catch up on email, or whatever else you’d like to get done without a dog underfoot.
What’s mat potato training?
Your dog learns a cue for going to her spot, so you can send her there whenever need strikes. She also learns to stay there—resting or happily occupied with a toy or chew—until you give the all-clear.
How does it work?
Our trainer Cath does the heavy lifting for you. Each week for three weeks she’ll work with your dog for an hour (you don’t even have to be there!), and then spend another hour with you to transfer over your dog’s progress. Voila! Your very own mat potato!
What does it cost?
You get 6 training sessions—3 for your dog and 3 for you and your dog together—for $840. That’s a $60 savings off our regular private training fees.
How do I sign up?
Just call or email to turn your whirling dervish into a calm, enjoyable mat potato.
