Curtis Craig

Curtis is a world-renowned dog behavior expert! Being one of the only people in the country to have lived with a personal pack of nearly 30 personal dogs in his home. He has developed a unique perspective and amazing insight of the human dog relationship. His strengths are in his ability to relate to and understand the psychology of both humans and dogs. You don’t get a well-balanced dog without having both the humans and the dogs in sync. By teaching the humans what their dogs’ true needs are, we bridge the gap between the two species and are able to create a harmonious relationship where both dog and human are fulfilled, balanced, and happy.

You can have a nervous, fearful, anxious dog that makes poor choices (barks, growls, lunges, attacks, runs, hides) towards people, other dogs, bikes, skateboards etc, or you can have a nervous, fearful, anxious dog that instead of simply reacting to their nervousness, fearfulness or anxiety, defers to you, and makes great choices around all of the above listed items.

Left to figure it out on their own, with no real information about what an appropriate response is, dogs will simply react, and are liable to make very bad choices. It’s your job to show your dog what to think, how to feel, and how to react when faced with things that unnerve them.

This takes knowledge and leadership on your part and establishing the right relationship with your dog. Our training is different then your traditional training. We use a real world training system which means that we don’t train the dog for 15 to 20 minutes at a time. We train them all day. We teach them to behave all of the time. They get lots of structured exercise, lots of play with other dogs and most importantly, long duration calming exercises. They learn how to exist in a human home.

They learn that just because we are up and walking around; doing laundry, fixing dinner, playing with the kids, having company come over, etc… they are just suppose to hang out with us. Hanging out with us doesn’t mean jumping, nipping, or running around. Just hang out with us. This is done by showing them strong leadership and structure.

Using our over 20 years of experience we bring the dogs back to a natural way of thinking and behaving. Creating and balanced well behaved family pet. There is no dog we can’t help. No matter how bad or out of control you think your situation is, please CONTACT US – we can help!
