About us

Positive, patient & passionate

Pooch Partners is passionate about what we do! Founded in 2011 to help reduce pet obesity by providing fitness classes for  people and their dogs, our services have expanded significantly to include dog obedience (using only positive training methods), dog sports, hiking, annual fund raising events and more!

Pooch Partners is a client-driven business that takes a long term view of our relationships with all of our clients and business partners with whom we deal. We are committed to inspiring and motivating our human and canine clients to achieve their goals in a safe, effective and fun manner and strive to provide the highest quality of service possible. Through games based concept training you will be inspired when you see the transformation in your dog, and empowered to keep on playing!  Check out our services, like us on Facebook to stay up to date on what’s happening and then join us to experience how great it is to workout with the best training partner ever…your pooch!

exercise is critical

A tired dog is a happy dog

Do you want a healthy, content, well behaved dog?  Every dog needs adequate daily activity not just to maintain a healthy weight, but to maintain their mental wellness too.  Lack of physical exercise and mental stimulation can lead to boredom and anxiety, both of which can cause your pooch to behave inappropriately. Games based training and our fitness classes for you and your pooch are great options to help you keep your pooch active, healthy and happy.  Learn more about all of our services and get started today!

Fun, effective & all positive

Fun, effective & all positive

No negativity here!

You won’t find any prong, electric or choke collars here! Pooch Partners trains using only positive training methods – concept training through games and/or clicker training are both proven,  effective and fun!  Regardless of what the problem it, there’s a game that can help!  It’s okay to be pessimistic, once you understand and actually see how your dog responds to concept training, you will never use traditional training methods again. Your relationship with your dog will be strengthened and training will always be a fun experience for both you and your dog!

Tired dog = happy dog = happy you! We can help make it happen!
