Don't wait before it's too late!
Most people wait until trouble starts before calling a trainers, and that's ok. Just like we don't call a doctor until we're sick, but the best way to strengthen your relationship is Preventive Training. That is learn to train and management BEFORE it happens. This is leaning commands, house training, guests coming over, public safety, chewing, barking, etc. Not only will it save you time and from a nervous break down....but it's so much cheaper. WHY? Replacing furniture, clothes, veterinarian bills and the embarrassment can be the sore spot of raising a dog or puppy. Start your relationship happy, healthy and embarrassment free!
CAN YOUR DOG DOWN/STAY IN PUBLIC AROUND DISTRACTIONS?
Here at NW Dog Pros, we value your time. We not only know that time is essential, but critical when it comes to dog behavior. The longer you wait, the worse it will get and harder to break the bad habits. So we conduct a behavior evaluation either at your home or ours to decide which of our 2 programs will best fit for you and your dog. Training is only as good as the method implemented for the dog. It doesn't do the dog any good if he/she is learning in a manner that doesn't fit for them, so we use a diverse method that motivates them to learn and set perimeters for them to know what to do AND not to do. It's that simple!
I almost gave up on trying to train our dog. We found Aisha and went through her training programs, and now we couldn't be happier! We're so happy we didn't give up!-- Pablo Family
After adopting our puppy from the Humane Society, we made sure we got the best training. The program was great, easy to follow and will lead into adulthood.
We tried group classes, we tried dog parks, we tried all positive training, we tried doggie daycare....we tried it ALL! Then we found Aisha, and then it made sense! Thank you, finally we get it!-- Anderson Family

Have you ever been rescued? So do some of these guys?
Whether it was a relationship, job or friendship we'veall been there. Felt like someone giving up on us. Millions of dogs are in shelters just for this reason. So many owners either don't have the resources, knowledge or was givin the WRONG knowledge and surrendered their petto a human society or rescue. Most believe before going to purchase a pet, see if there's a good pet at a shelter or rescue. We have more information on our Rescue Page that can help you locate a good pet needing a home like yours. DOG RESCUE
Breaking their spirit is the biggest myth about training a dog. Think about it...we designed these breeds to do certain tasks hundreds or thousands of years ago. And now that we have evolved, most of these breeds are owned for their looks. So now what? Well, just for the soul purpose these breeds were made is what is getting these guys in trouble. The terrier, guard dogs, small breeds, herding dogs. All blamed for inappropriate behavior when it's 99% breed instict. 1% primal instinct. But that's a different conversation. So will training break her spirit? Of course not. Read about moreMYTHS
Most owners feel left in the dark when trying to get advise or answers for their dogs behavior issues. But are they really BAD behavior issues? Or is your dog crying out for help? So many factors go in to account for WHY they are "misbehaving". What kind of breed, lifestyle, puppy management, genetics, etc. So when looking on-line, reading a book, talking to a trainer, make sure all of these are put into thought for both obedience and behavior modification. And make sure the program is going to be enough. Do you need Board & Train or Private Lessons? Read BEHAVIOR MANAGEMENT
Don't feel alone. Most owners have problems with...
"I loved the fact that when Max was a puppy and Aisha came out to help us with puppy training, we could call her in the future if we needed help when he was getting older.---Alicia, Bellevue, WA
"The combination of obedience and behavior is what I liked. Not many trainers will do obth. Most trainers even try to get you to do a sport. I just need my dog to stop pulling." ---Robert, Kirkland, WA
"We did the Private lessons. The public distraction and getting 'Lucy' used to strangers was a great help. Understanding that body language, structure and boundries was something we didn't learn from the other Group Classes. Thanks Aisha!"---Henry, Redmond, WA
What is Off Leash control?
---Off Leash Control isn't some fancy way of training your dog. It's knowing you have a method of training so in case the door opens, the leash breaks, the collar slips...knowing your dog will stay with you & comes when called.
What is Diverse Methods?
---Diverse Methods is knowing what kind of training will work with your dog's temperment and expecting the results you want. Not one size fits all...but we do make sure ever dog is trained with safety in mind.
