    Brad, Theresa and Vida are like a second family for Miller and I!! We have been with SMP since Miller was 8 weeks old, from puppy training to Day Camp/Pet Concierge and pet sitting, they do everything and with tons and tons of love with every step!! Miller is incredibly well dispositioned, follows commands and is such a friendly socialized happy dog because of the work that the SMP crew do!! Now, at almost 2 years old, Miller is often used to help integrate and socialize newer and/or more skittish dogs into the Pack. The Pet Concierge service is bar none!! Miller receives guidance, training, faciliatates and socializes with other dogs and comes home so incredibly happy. Thank you SMP for all the amazing work you do!! ❤️🐕‍ 🙏🏽

SMP’s Philosophy & Methods of Training

We are dedicated to helping our customers and their pets to learn and GROW together. We help you build a lifetime bond with your pet & show you just how fun and effective our positive, reward-based approach to training is done! Adult dog and puppy training empowers pet lovers with the proper knowledge and tools to teach their dogs to listen to them out of respect, not fear.

Our Trainers have completed an extensive curriculum focusing on positive motivation training techniques with a cursory education on alternate training techniques. We use a Balanced Training Approach to Training, and our Methods primarily focus on using relationship building and positive reward-based training, as this is the best way to build trust and communication between canine and human.

Working with dogs of all breeds, sizes and temperaments, we use Behavior Modification for cases of reactivity, aggression, separation anxiety, fearfulness or any other undesirable learned response.

We are fully committed to keeping your pets safe from injurious training methods. Our training curriculum advocates science-based, positive reinforcement training philosophies, including using the least intrusive minimally aversive (LIMA) training techniques.

Whenever we train your pets, we are committed to utilizing the highest quality standards in all aspects of our operations; including ethical treatment and training of dogs, ethical treatment of clients, and solid dog training. Overall, we adhere to the highest quality standards, regulations, and ramifications set forth by the American Kennel Club, Association for Professional Dog Trainers, Pro Pet Hero, and Animal Behavior College, when giving you advice and recommendations for Dog Training Methods.
