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.

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!

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.

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

* All listed pricing is for online classes. In-home classes are available at additional cost.
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:
- Documentation of age-appropriate shots. This includes rabies (dogs more than 16-weeks old) and distemper. I also recommend, but do not require, bordetella.
- 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.
