Board & Train Pricing 

“A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself.”

My mission is to help create a harmonious relationship between you and your beloved dog for the rest of their life. With trust, patience, good communication, and consistency I can open up the lines of communication between you and your dog so that they can finally understand what good dog behavior is. 

By utilizing advanced training techniques and a custom training protocol, I deliver high level results in just a few short weeks. They will experience training in both new and familiar settings, in public and at home, on leash and off. Being around other people, dogs, kids, and other animals is a designed part of the training. 

Your dog will learn to walk through life with a new sense of calm and confidence. If you've been dreaming of helping your dog reach their fullest potential, our training program can open up that door to the relationship with your dog you've been looking for.

Bob did an amazing job with our dog Duke. Our 1 year old rottweiler had boundless strength and energy, walking him was a pain, having guests over was a pain, and we needed help. Happy Dog truly not only helped us get our dog's behavior under control, they have helped him and us to be happier together as well.

Our 1 year old doberman Mike was a lot to handle. He had a lot of anxiety issues and was almost impossible to walk on a leash. Additionally he would jump on guests and when we'd put him in his crate, he would whine. Bob not only fixed these issues, he has given our family peace and calm at home and when we take him in public.

We absolutely love our dog Dexter (an Australian shepherd) but with a baby on the way we knew we needed to get some of his bad behavior dealt with. Bob did an incredible with Dexter and he even trained us too! We couldn't be more happy with our well behaved fur-baby.

We were getting frustrated with our sweet boy Tank when we cam across Bob's website, Happy Dog Training Academy. Tank has a lot of energy, and there were times while I was walking him I thought he was going to pull my shoulder out. We originally called to see if Bob could help with the leash pulling and we signed up for the in-home board and dog training program. We can't believe what a difference this has made for us. We highly encourage others to sign up for this program, it has been life changing.

Thank you Bob!
