A dog is not almost-human, and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

Have a new puppy but limited time for training?

Adopt an adorable rescue dog with less than adorable habits?

Just want to learn how to have fun building a closer bond with your dog?


Having a dog in the family should be fun and rewarding....for both you and your dog! Savvy Dog offers personalized training solutions and specialized daycare options that teach skills, accelerate learning and support your behavioral goals. 

From socializing and housebreaking young puppies to teaching adult rescue dogs how to be well-mannered family members, our passion is to provide you with the knowledge and support to move beyond mere obedience training to a brilliant bond with your dog.


Our services are designed to help you accelerate and achieve your training goals:

Day Training - Drop your dog off at our facility in the morning for "school" and they'll spend the day playing and socializing with a small group of other students as well as getting direct and indirect training based on the plan we've developed together.

Private Consults - One-on-one training for you and your dog, at your home or our facility.  Also available are 30 minute “walking consults” to help with those leash manners, semi-private consultations and "intern-for-a day" options.   

Classes & Events - A variety of small group classes,  training “field trips” and one-day workshops are offered periodically.  Check out the detail page for the latest schedule and curriculums. 


Our blog is designed to educate, inspire and enrich the lives of all who love dogs. Training tips, updates on the latest research, personal reflections and profiles of special dog-people relationships will be covered.  "Tasty Treat Tuesdays" and "Fab Photo Fridays" are regular features.
