  • positive review  We recently adopted two 2 year old beagles that have some behavior issues. We contacted Bo for help and he gave us a lot of techniques and tips for kind and force free training to address these issues. We are already seeing progress in them and would recommend Bo if you need help with your dog.

  • positive review  There aren’t enough stars to leave to express how wonderful we think Bo is, and his training methods. We were ready to give up our 14 month Flatcoated Retriever. Through his kind training methods we now have a another family member. Thanks Bo A BILLION stars! The Battista Family

  • 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!

  • positive review  Bo was amazing with my shepherd and her reactive personality. He gave effective tips and tricks to help her stay calm in uncomfortable situations, along with written instructions we could refer back to! I would definitely recommend him to others who are having problems training their dog!

  • positive review  I would highly recommend Bo! I started to have no hope with my two chihuahuas until I met Bo. Not only did he help train my dogs but he helped me understand them better. It only took two training sessions for my dogs and now everyone that knew my dogs behavior issues and went around them before now comes around them with no problems and notices saying “Wow, training really did pay off.”

  • positive review  I have nothing but good things to say about Bo and his training. I was feeling very helpless with my dog Duke and his behavioral issues and am very glad I found his website online. Bo came to our house to work with our dog Duke. He asked tons of questions to understand what we wanted out of the training, and to understand Duke and what his needs were as well. By the fourth session I had seen a ton of improvement with Duke, and also feel more confident having the tools to help set him up for further success. I highly recommend contacting Bo for any of your dog training needs!

See Why My Training is the Best

Achieve Resonance and Responsiveness
through Science and Love

You never have to use intimidation, fear, pain, or violence to motivate your dog ever again.

The newest wave of science-based dog training is force free and pain free.

You, too, can learn how to train a dog and address problem behaviors by leveraging the most recent advances in canine learning theory and motivating your dog from the inside-out.

It’s not “just a dog”. It’s your beloved family member. And your canine companion deserves the deepest love and best care you can offer.

Frequently Asked Questions

I am based in Beloit, WI. My typical service area is up to a 15-minute drive. Beyond that, I charge an additional fee for travel time. Remember, I can work with you anywhere in the world over Google Meet, which is a superior way to train your dog anyway. 

Typically, other trainers offer private lessons that run between 45 minutes and an hour. My standard private sessions for my Dog Training Anywhere Program (over Google Meet) run at least an hour. The exception here is my Introduction to Puppies class, which runs at least 1 hour and 30 minutes. If you sign up for classes in your home I will need to be strict about the time (1 hour for privae sessions) since I need to schedule for extra prep and travel time between clients.

I can’t answer that until I know more about your training needs. After all, I want match the training program to you and your dog. 

This is why I offer a free 30-minute phone conversation (as opposed to the norm which is charging for an assessment). During that call I will give you options and tell you what I think is best. It doesn’t cost you anything and it’s risk-free since you are under no obligation to hire me for services. You can click here to set that up. 

If you need more of a ballpark figure, prices for online training (my economy program) are listed on the service pages. In-home session pricing varies due to travel time. 

Contact me and we’ll work something out based on what you can afford.

Don't Put It Off Any Longer

Let’s talk about how I can help you.  

Just schedule a free phone appointment on my calendar. On the sign-up form, tell me about your dog and the issues you face. Then, I’ll call you at the scheduled time. On that call, I’ll ask questions so I can determine how I can help you best.

Since you are not obligated to sign up and it’s on my dime, the call is no risk to you

If you are looking for a dog trainer near you, my business is based in Beloit, WI. If you are not in this area, I can still work personally with you online through my Dog Training Anywhere Program (online dog training).
