Our Trainers have developed several training programs to fit you and your pup! Training from the very beginning all the way through adulthood is key to raising your pup to be the best canine citizen.  We also have private training available that will be customized to best fit you and your pups needs.

We will perform consults and evaluations on a case-by-case basis. The initial consultation can be performed at the shelter or the HALO facility.

Dog Behavior

Our Certified Animal Behaviorist has counseled clients who’s dog displays behaviors such as fearfulness, dog-dog aggression, resource guarding, compulsive behaviors, barrier aggression, fear aggression, and separation anxiety.  We have worked with numerous bully breeds, working dogs, and toys breeds.

With our guidance, you will be taught the proper way to interact and train your dog. We will provide follow up visits, phone calls, and daycare visits until you are comfortable following through with the behavior modification plan that we provide unique to your dog.  We are truly loyal to our clients and will work to keep your pet and your family safe and happy.

We also offer Behavior Consultation discounts for newly adopted rescue dogs, shelters, and rescues. The fees are as follows:
