We Train You To Bring Out Your Dog's True Self

Every human, dog and situation are different which means each relationship requires a custom plan based on the human’s energy, their dog’s energy, the relationship between them and the unwanted behaviors being exhibited.

Most unwanted behaviors are a result of their human owner’s lack of understanding of Dog Psychology. Once they understand Dog Psychology and how to apply it with their individual dog, it becomes clear to a dog how they should behave with their human leader. Dog’s instinctually know how to follow a calm confident leader, we just guide you on how to become that leader in the way your dog sees the world. This allows your dog’s true spirit to shine through!

We often say, “it’s not the dog, it’s the human behind the dog.” Once you change the things that are contributing to your dog leading which is resulting in the unwanted behaviors, the dog will change and unwanted behaviors will disappear.

We will train you on how to deal with these unwanted behaviors in everyday, real-world situations so you feel confident to lead your dog in aspects of your life. Leadership in the dog world means protection, direction and love. We want your dog to feel safe and understand clearly what is expected of them in all situations. That is the definition of truly fulfilling your dog’s instinctual needs and gives you the opportunity to give affection to a calm, happy, well-behaved dog who feels safe and understood.

As always, this requires commitment and consistency from you to follow through on what you learn working with us. Please check out our Testimonials page to see how many lives we have changed!

If you witnessed how it was previously, this is the closest thing to a miracle I’ve ever experienced... For this reason, I have not and will not train my dogs anywhere else... I am eternally grateful to The Pack. Next puppy we get, our first stop will be The Maddie Ranch!

We’ve gone through 6 trainers over the years and Steve was going to be our last resort. We signed up for 3 sessions, and within 5 mins of our first meeting, Steve was able to assess Odin and us as owners, and gave us clear and direct feedback... He made the biggest difference, and was the best investment we made in ourselves for Odin. Steve is like a dog psychologist, behavior expert, life coach, and therapist for humans all in one… and he’s funny too!
