Good, better, best-trained dog

Does your dog…

Jump on peo­ple?
Not come when called?
Have bad leash man­ners?
Bark at unfa­mil­iar peo­ple or dogs?

We know what dogs can be like—and pup­pies can be such a hand­ful, too. The bit­ing, the house-training acci­dents, that one-second atten­tion span…

Do you need help with your dog or puppy?

Then you’re in the right place. Wel­come to Cold Nose Col­lege, the land of dog. We know dogs inside out, tip of the nose to tip of the tail. We know how they think and more impor­tantly how they learn. And we spend our days turn­ing dogs and pup­pies into well-behaved pets that are a plea­sure to live with.
