The Driven Dog understands that every dog is an individual and dog training cannot be one size fits all. We custom tailor our training to best suit you and your dog’s unique needs. We believe in fair and balanced training, with both positive reinforcement and fair communication, so your dog knows exactly what is being asked and can perform to their full potential.
We strive to educate owners and handlers to better understand their dog and to form a relationship based on mutual respect.
