Certified Professional Canine Trainers

Force-Free Dog Training. LIMA Compliant. Effective, Educated, Ethical.

Welcome to private, at home dog and puppy training by Canine High School. We specialize in practical real-world solutions for all levels of training. We are passionate about educating our community on the humane treatment of animals while using force-free dog training techniques. We are LIM compliant and apply the Humane Hierarchy to every case that we take on. Our goal is to make the jargon and science easily accessible and easy to understand, and to teach you the most effective, educated, and ethical options available. We want everyone in our community to be able to practice and maintain what we teach easily. 

As we work with you and your dog at your home, we pledge to use empathy and compassion when offering feedback. We want to highlight our commitment to use mindfulness when communicating with our clients, some situations may be very private and we will always respect your privacy and be tactful when bringing up an observation. While we will always be tactful, respectful and kind, we will also be factual and honest with you when there is something that is causing a dog harm.
