Our Service Dogs in Training:

Our monthly FREE seminars held since July 2017 have been a huge success! We assist in correcting behavior issues, help eliminate bad habits, and we teach dog owners to train basic commands, tricks, or service dog tasks. 

 Our next training seminar will begin at Noon on February 16, 2019 at McVicker Park (see map below). All breeds and all ages are welcome to attend at no cost. We will meet outside of the dog park area, just below the playground. Come by with your dog for our FREE professional dog training session!

***Our puppy-to-service-dog program is currently full and we are not accepting new clients at this time. Not every puppy will graduate and become a working service dog, if your puppy does not graduate, you may keep your well-trained dog as a pet, or we will assist in rehoming your dog, and you will receive a replacement puppy. We will accept new clients after our current dogs graduate. 

We offer our professional Board & Train on your first week at half price when you purchase your Standard Poodle puppy from Barbie @ www.bpoodles.com.  Her stunningly beautiful puppies are healthy, happy, and highly trainable!

We have been raising and training dogs in performance, obedience, and agility for over 35 years. We train our dogs to become champions in the show ring, in performance sports, and as working dogs. We will teach your dog through calm, assertive, and fun training sessions, with no harsh corrections or punishment. Our training method is positive reward-based operant conditioning, and we establish trust for obedience rather than fear, resulting in a happy, well-behaved, and fully trained dog!

​Bio-Sensor Routine

​The U.S. Military in their canine program developed a method that still serves as a guide to what works.

​In an effort to improve the performance of dogs used for military purposes, a program called the "Bio Sensor" was developed.

​Later, it became known to the public as the "Super Dog Program".

​Based on years of research, the military learned that early neurological stimulation exercises could have important and lasting effects,

​Their studies confirmed that there are specific time periods early in life when neurological stimulation has optimum results.

​The first period involves a window of time that begins at the third day of life and lasts until the sixteenth day.

​It is believed that because this interval of time is a period of rapid neurological growth and development, it is therefore of great importance to the individual.

​The Bio-Sensor program was also concerned with early neurological stimulation in order to give the dog a superior advantage.

​Its development utilized six exercises, which were designed to stimulate the neurological system.

​These exercises impact the neurological system by kicking it into action earlier than would be normally expected.

​The result being an increased capacity that later will help to make the difference in its performance.

​Five benefits have been observed in canines that were exposed to the Bio-Sensor stimulation exercises.

​Improved cardio vascular performance (heart rate), stronger heart beats, stronger adrenal glands, more tolerance to stress, and greater resistance to disease.

​In tests of learning, stimulated pups were found to be more active and were more exploratory than their non-stimulated littermates over which they were dominant in competitive situations.
