  • review rating 5  We just had our first training session with Bo. HE IS AMAZING! Teddy's first test came shortly after Bo left, when a visitor came to the door. One quick bark, no growling! WOW!

  • review rating 5  All dog owners will greatly benefit from the beginner classes. The teaching method was easy to understand, non-abusive, and was fun for us and for our dogs. Our relationship with our dogs strengthened greatly due to the trust built through these exercises. Bo was an amazing instructor. He was motivated, respectful, and extremely knowledgeable. Highly recommended to both new and old dog owners who want to create a stronger bond with their pets and would like to have a better understanding of how to properly learn with them without physical punishment.

  • review rating 0  I would highly recommend Bo. He was great with our 2 somewhat unruly rescues. He was even able to work with the one that was fearful of men. Bo taught us several techniques that have helped us tremendously with their behavior. It was definitely money well spent!

  • review rating 5  We had our fist class with Bo a few days after we brought Gytha home at 10 weeks. At 5 months, we're doing Bo's group class, and we're doing really well! Bo is an amazing trainer — sure, he's great with the dogs (he's their best friend, I'm not even chopped liver), but he's also great with people. If you're on the fence, just do it. As long as you put in the work, you and your dog will flourish with Bo's guidance.

  • review rating 5  Bo helped my two scared Chihuahuas calm down and relax. They are happier and their anxiety is greatly reduced! I learned to read their body signals better, too. I'm so grateful to Bo for giving my dogs a better life.

  • review rating 5  Arnold is a 9 month old yellow lab mixed with husky. His energy is endless! 4 months ago I was getting complaints about my pup barking. 2 months ago I received behavior notes from Arnold’s day care. Since we started training with Bo we haven’t received any noise complaints and Arnold is able to go to two days at day care now. I’ve learned a lot from Bo. Arnold and I have a better bond now than we have before. I still have a lot of work to do but I have all of the tools I need thanks to Bo!

  • review rating 5  Bo is a great trainer. He has been working with Ryder and I have seen a improvement beyond belief. Ryder is 6 months old now and is doing great on his training with Bo. Bo is very good at explaining things to us and makes it very easy to understand. If you need help with your Puppy I highly recommend Bo to help you. He not only trains your Pup he also trains you to be a better dog owner. It is nice to have a well behaved dog. Thank you Bo for helping us with Ryder!

  • review rating 5  Bo is amazing! He is full of information. He was able to work with our puppy who is leash reactive, and get her to happily meet another dog is less than 40 minutes! So awesome! I am so thankful I found him to help us, especially since other trainers told us they couldn't.

  • review rating 5  Bo is exactly who we needed. He showed not only myself but our children how train our pup in such a positive way, it amazes me! I’ve always leaned towards the “Alpha” training philosophy but after our 7 weeks with Bo, never again. Our Saint Bernard, Odin Stark, has been afraid of baths/water. Just a few minutes with Bo, our pup was able to stay in the bathroom without fear. Then a few positive training sessions with us and another few moments with Bo, I am happy to report that Odin climbs in and out of the tub on his own and even plays in his pool in the yard! No violence. No yelling. No intimidation. Most importantly, no more wrestling with a 120lb+ puppy after he comes in the house covered in mud! It’s a wonderful thing to see a dog respond so positively to training from even my 9 year old son. Bo has given us the knowledge to continue giving our pup the positive, stress-free structure we all desire. It’s such an amazing thing to witness our pup learn to correct his own unwanted behavior in a non-violent way with just a few minutes of positive training that we learned from Bo. He gives you the tools to create an amazing bond with your pet. His methods become part of your every day life that before you know it, you aren’t taking 15 minutes here and there to teach. He helps you to interact with you pet that the positive reinforcement training becomes part of daily life. Before you know it, you and your pet are happily living together. I just can not express how wonderful our time with Bo has been. I’m looking forward to taking Odin to Puppy Gym and watching the magic happen again. Best decision we made for us and Odin. I recommend spending time with Bo to everyone!

Process to Begin

Science-Based Dog Training: What It Is. What It Isn't.

Dog owners often don't realize that there are several different approaches to training. Not all of them are concerned about dog health and wellbeing. Some are actually downright dangerous.

This presentation will help you identify the various types of training when you encounter them, and be able to discern how humanely those trainers will treat your dog.
