RUFF Around The Edges
Just like humans, every dog is a little:
"RUFF Around The Edges"
But this is why we love them so much! Its what makes them individuals, this is why each person is able to say:
"I have the best dog in the world"
I am a Master Canine Trainer with a very simple philosophy:
I believe that training should be
fun, innovative, and growl-free.
Lances passion for animals started at a young age growing up on a farm and through his involvement showing animals in 4-H. Lances own path in life gave him a deeper understanding of why dogs do what they do, this same path also led him to his education in working with our furry friends. Lance has had the opportunity to work with dogs from many different breeds that have all passed the standard evaluation of Basic Canine Obedience. He has had the privilege to work with children suffering from Autism to help them have a special skilled canine companion to help them with their specific needs. Lance has earned certificates for completing the requirements for Master Trainer in Canine Behavioral Modification, he also has a certificate for completing 4000 apprenticeship hours as an Animal Trainer from the United States Department of Labor. Lances background is not only in training, he also has experience in rescue shelters and in counseling dog owners. He has fully trained over sixty dogs on his own and has helped many dog owners work with their own canine companions. Lance currently resides in Colorado with his wonderful famiy and his five rescue dogs named "Goose","Cookie","Halo","Lexi"and "Riddick"

Start To Finish Training
This 5 week training program offers you the benefits of having a one on one professional trainer that will teach you how to train your dog. This program differs from traditional group training where a trainer would not be able to give their attention fully to you during the session. In my program the trainer is totally focused only on you and your dogs needs for the entire session! I will help you with everything from potty training to basic commands all the way through obedience training.
Off Leash Obedience Training
Professional Avoidance Training
Teach your dog obedience with a leash free approach to training. This is a 5 week program that teaches your dog the basic commands with positive rewards through two levels of teaching phases then your dog enters avoidance training using the stimulation of an E-collar. This approach is designed to offer you the skills and knowledge of how to properly introduce and use the collar to be able to have an off leash and obedient experience with your dog. This program is for dog owners that are interested in taking their dogs on outdoor adventures in the wilderness or are dealing with a stubborn dog.
