TRUST  It is important that your dog TRUSTS you in every way. When your dog TRUSTS that you provide loving leadership, safety, and security, then he can be calm and let you do your job as team leader.

RESPECT  A good team leader will always RESPECT and coach the dog on how to fulfill his place in the team. In turn, the dog will learn to RESPECT you as well.

EDUCATION  Your dog is an intelligent creature with a great capacity to learn many things. When you provide EDUCATION instead of force, there should be no roadblocks to training your dog.

ACTION  Your ACTIONS speak louder than words. ACT to keep your dog safe. ACT to interrupt your dog. ACT to redirect your dog. Your ACTIONS, not your words, will demonstrate to your dog that you are the team leader.

TEAM WORK  Dogs instinctively want to be part of a pack, so why not make it a successful one? It is all about developing a TEAM atmosphere between family and dog. TEAMWORK makes the dream work.

SUCCESS  A good team leader always sets the team up for SUCCESS. Be proactive, plan ahead, and guarantee the outcome. Always plan a win-win situation.

 Why the T.R.E.A.T.S. Dog Training System?

The T.R.E.A.T.S. System teaches you how your dog thinks and what your dog needs from you. It’s not just textbook theory. We’ve developed the T.R.E.A.T.S. System through 60+ years of actual dog training experience. We guarantee that it’s unlike any dog training program you’ve ever  seen.

We know, because we’ve looked at them all. From Shear Force to Nothing-but-Treats, and everything between.

Dog training is a family affair

We’ve learned that when it comes to dog training, one style does not fit all.  Dogs come in many shapes, sizes and breeds, all with unique personalities. Some dogs thrive with strict, military-style training. Others react with cowers and whimpers. Some dogs will do anything for a treat. Others can’t listen to a command while staring at the goodie in your hand.


We’ve mastered many training styles, each appropriate for a different sort of dog. We’ve also identified the essential methods needed to train most every type of dog. We’ve blended them together to create a balanced training SYSTEM.


The T.R.E.A.T.S System is all about using the right style and techniques for YOUR dog. It builds a great dog/owner team with proper management, quality coaching and loving leadership. We teach you to be a great decision maker, so your dog doesn’t think he or she calls the shots.


T.R.E.A.T.S. is less about learning commands and more about living together as a family. Like your toddler, your puppy must be potty trained. He must learn to sit calmly while waiting for a meal and to politely greet visitors. But family life is more than that. You want to walk past cars, through parks filled with small children and other dogs. You hope to run the trails of a wooded park together. You need your puppy to follow your lead.

With dog training, your pet can fully participate in family life
Why Does the T.R.E.A.T.S. Dog Training System Work?

We guarantee the T.R.E.A.T.S. System is 100% effective when used consistently.

Dogs are social pack animals and quickly follow a good leader. The T.R.E.A.T.S. System lets you and the members of your family take the lead. We teach you to work together as a great coaching staff, so your dog can become a star player.

All you need is a commitment to change your own behavior, so your dog believes you’re in charge. That can be the hard part. Your family has to agree to work together as a team to win. Then we’ll guide you as you take charge and guide your dog to better behaviors.
