Instinct was founded on the principle that dogs are family. At each Instinct facility, experienced teams of certified, veterinarian-recommended trainers and behavior consultants are guided by this simple principle, and are committed to providing help and hope to every dog and owner no matter how difficult a situation may seem -through positive, and effective training.

Our dog trainers promote and utilize Positive Reinforcement Dog Training techniques, a humane, reward-based training method used to build a relationship of trust and respect between you and your dog. We’re focused on not only training your dog, but teaching owners how to best communicate with their dogs, without using fear, submission and intimidation.
