Dog Training and Dog Behavior Services

Frustrated by living with an untrained dog, or one with behavioral issues? We can help your dog become the companion you’ve always wanted. Custom-tailored solutions for each individual dog and family are our specialty. Whether you’re struggling with behavior problems such as aggression or leash reactivity, feeling overwhelmed with a new puppy, or just hoping to improve your dog’s obedience skills, we can help. 

Both outdoor and in-home sessions are available for clients in the Asheville area, and remote sessions are also available if you’re not nearby. Trish is fully vaccinated against Covid 19 and is happy to wear a face mask as well.

We will work only on the issues you need help with – you can still give your dog affection, let her sniff while walking on leash, and snuggle on the sofa or in bed together. Dog training doesn’t have to involve shouting commands or marching back and forth in heel position – positive reinforcement training creates a dog who wants to work with you, and who enjoys doing what you ask!

Single remote training session, or outdoor training session at my farm in Mars Hill

We can work on any training or behavior problem - book sessions one at a time until you feel the problem has been resolved to your satisfaction. From puppy training to obedience training to aggression or anxiety issues, we are here to help.

If you require in-person help and are within 30 miles of Mars Hill, NC, outdoor in-person sessions can be booked at your house or wherever the problem is happening

What does remote training look like?

You set up your laptop, phone or tablet where I can watch you and your dog, , and I will coach you from my home, using my dog or a stuffed dog to show you different techniques.
