"Your imagination is your only limitation. So keep it fun for you & your dog."

Ken, Lisa and Eric Baechtold agree:

"Dog training is more than a job.

It’s the gift and passion with which we’re blessed.

It’s our life’s work."

It’s work in which they have extensive real world experience. Together, they handle nearly 1,500 dogs per year.

Ken has trained dogs for over 60 years. Lisa, his wife and business partner, ran her own dog care business before joining Ken as a trainer in 2007. Ken’s son, Eric, is happy to have grown up in the family dog training business, always surrounded by dogs.

We feel great joy when we see a dog change. We love the magic that begins when a dog starts thinking rather than merely reacting.


It’s just as magical to watch owners learn to lead. The dog training process teaches you a lot about yourself - and your interactions with others. There’s nothing like watching a family learn to work together as they train a dog.


Teamwork makes the dream work.


And we consider it a privilege to be trusted members of the team.

- Ken, Lisa & Eric
