Similar to humans, dogs' behavior is affected by their own genetics, upbringing, and the world around them. Third Eye Dog Training takes a "whole dog" approach to training—we look for the root of the behavior and account for environmental, medical, and genetic factors that may be influencing your dog. Over the years, we have found this method to be highly beneficial for the dog-owner relationship, and the most effective for long term behavior solutions.

Certified and insured, Third Eye uses the most updated science-based methods when doing behavior work. We focus heavily on reward-based training and clear communication between dog and owner; this is based off of many research studies as well as a requirement of our certifications and insurance. For more info, check out ASVAB's statements on humane training.
