Welcome to Come When Called Dog Training!

If any of this sounds familiar, you’re in the right place. I can help.

Using scientific, positive training techniques and a huge bag of professional tricks collected over more than eighteen years of training dogs and puppies, I can get you and your dog reading from the same dictionary. I can show you how to turn your problem dog—no matter how big or small the dog or the problem—into the well-mannered companion you’ve always wanted. 

Call for private dog training lessons, group dog training classes and puppy kindergarten.

Training Philosophy

We are committed to teaching you to train your dog or puppy using modern, reward-based training and behavior modification techniques that work quickly and effectively.

We use only gentle, positive reinforcement techniques that are people- and dog-friendly in addition to being fun and easy to learn for you and your dog.

Our methods are based in proven scientific learning principles – not in tradition.

You will learn how to communicate with your dog, and clear communication means successful training and good behavior – with no need for force or coercion.

We specialize in helping you turn your untrained or challenging dog into a well-behaved companion and good neighborhood citizen.
