Balanced Dog Training That Gets Results

Applewoods Dog Training is not your average, everyday pet training school. We use a proven, balanced, piece by piece, layer upon layer methodology. No clickers, treats, or toys – just old-fashioned and incredibly effective training. Dogs trained at Applewoods learn to think and are given the privilege of taking responsibility for their behavior while, at the same, time learn emotional and physical self-control.
