FOR YOU AND YOUR DOG

WITH JULIE FORBES AND DARCIE BOLTZ
DOG BEHAVIOR EXPERTS. INDUSTRY LEADERS. COMPASSIONATE GUIDES.

You’ll find our approach balanced, calm, refreshing, intuitive, and (perhaps best of all) effective. Our working style is fun, respectful, and sensitive to each individual–human and dog! We know that clear boundaries and appropriate expectations, built on a foundation of fun, love, and respect, will help your dog be the best version of him or herself.

The three most fundamental components of your dog are his or her biology, environment, and psychology. We look at each client through a full-spectrum lens. Nutrition, stress, medical issues, learning differences, and genetics are all factors that can impact your dog’s behavior–and we look at them all, always.

Our holistic approach to working with dogs can resolve some of the most challenging and puzzling behaviors. Twenty-five years of combined professional experience with dogs in addition to our vast network of local and national colleagues, equips us to help even the most complicated dogs, and their humans, achieve an improved quality of life. We specialize in helping dogs with challenges such as disrespectful behavior/manners, leash-walking, coming when called, anxiety, phobias, PTSD, compulsive behaviors, aggression, health-related behavioral challenges, and genetically-initiated temperament instability.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING…

“Julie and Darcie are the best team! They were able to do in a few short weeks what we were unable to do after a year and several other unsuccessful training programs. We did their two week board and train programs which includes several follow-up training sessions. They really take the time and listen to everything you have to say and really work with your dog’s own personality. The results were immediately evident and they really took the time to work with us to continue confidently training at home and are always available for questions or concerns. It was well worth the investment.”

“Julie is a phenomenal dog trainer and overall boss lady. I signed up for the 6 week course,  being a first time dog owner I had no idea what I was doing. Julie helped me feel confident each session and really catered to the needs of my puppy. Everyday I’m able to implement what we’ve learned.”

“Julie is amazing and not only focuses on your best friend, but also helps you understand them which is key. We have been going to Julie with our dog Sefu for a while and the results speak for themselves. Before Julie, we were very nervous with how a large dog might be, and now think of Sefu as one of the best decisions of our life.”
