We work with people having issues like these with their dogs, every single day:
I don't want my dog to be scared anymore!
Won't settle down or relax and exercise hasn't helped.
I've tried training with other trainers but it hasn't helped.
My dog won't come back, I am worried they'll get hurt.
My dog is pulling me on walks and I dread taking them out.
Barks at other dogs or people and I am at a loss on what to do.
"We have taken two of our dogs to Nicole. Our dog has improved a ton. She listens better than ever before, we have had such great success that we plan to continue into more advanced classes. Nicole is professional and friendly. Our dogs lover her and she really knows her stuff! :) We give Focused Canine Academy an A+!"

How we train
If we can help our dog feel better emotionally, the behavioral problems are easier to fix.
Our focus is to help your dog change the way they feel about the world around them. We use reward based training along with relaxation techniques to help your dog learn how to behave and calm down because they want to, not because they have to.
Your relationship with your dog will thrive when the two of you start working through life as a team.

We came to Focused Canine Academy for help with overexcited reactivity when seeing other dogs. Nicole has provided us with knowledge and tools to keep our pup relaxed and focused. She offers multiple techniques and helps determine the best method for your dog. Nicole is not only a great dog trainer but an awesome coach for humans too! She is very personable and provides feedback and advice to strengthen the communication between you and your dog. Training sessions were fun and never felt rushed. Highly reccomend!
