Creating a happy life with your best friend

Joyful Dog works one-on-one and in group classes with people and their dogs, teaching fun ways to live together with force-free tools and techniques for creative communication. We provide training in basic manners, behavioral problem-solving, puppy socialization, and a variety of special interests.

Our positive approach includes Tellington TTouch Training® methods of body work and movement to help dogs achieve physical and behavioral balance, improving trust and communication between humans and dogs.
