Science Based

My training leverages what recent science teaches us about how dogs learn best and shows how to avoid those things that impede learning.

Force Free, Pain Free

My approach avoids anything that utilizes intimidation, fear, pain, or violence. This is both an educational and a moral commitment.

Non-Aversive

My methods take into account not only efficiency in training, but also the emotional well being of your canine companion.

Ren R. Says:

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.

Pre-Registration Process

Pre-registration involves a phone conversation, presentation of shot records, and paying an invoice. Clients will need to start this process by contacting me about the service they are interested in. In my reply, I will request a phone conversation. During that conversation, we can ask each other questions. 

In order to clear a dog for class, I would need to receive proof of vaccinations. This is a safety issue for all dogs in the class. I require the following in advance:

  1. Documentation of age-appropriate shots. This includes rabies (dogs more than 16-weeks old) and distemper. I also recommend, but do not require, bordetella.
  2. Proof that the pup has seen a vet and been given a clean bill of health (a receipt for the shots from a vet will cover both requirements).

Once I have received and approved the shot records, I will reserve the spot and send an invoice. Because space is limited, I will only be able to hold the slot for a limited time, and that time will be identified in the invoice. If the invoice isn't paid before the deadline, the slot moves out of reserved status and back on the market.

The pre-registration process needs to be complete for a dog to attend class. If it is a group class, then it must be complete by 5:00 pm of the day before the class
