How We Can Guarantee Life-Long Changes In No Time At All Or Your Money Back!

Proven Strategy

Our holistic approach takes into account the dogs mind, body, and spirit. The skills you will get in this lesson will stimulate your dog's mind increasing their ability to focus on you. Balance their body with productive physical activity on walks. Soothes their soul while strengthening your bond with massage.

Balanced Methods

Our methods are based on the modern science of classical conditioning, operant conditioning, and differential reinforcement. These are the same methods scientists use at zoos to manage wild animals explained in plain English. We also have incorporated new emotional training theory to further address a dog's needs.

Practical Application

Experience has taught us to find ways to train in everyday situations. This program is designed to come naturally, adapt to your situation, and require no fancy equipment. Practice the Basics of Balance while you cook, watch TV, and go for a walk even on a bad day.

Real Puppy People Giving Honest Reviews

Kristi did such an amazing job training Ares! He now actually enjoys his crate, is much much better when going on walks, and no longer destroys things in the middle of the night! I highly recommend them if you need a little help with training!

- Jane Foster

After our two ladies had a terrible scuffle, You and Your Dog was highly recommended by another local business. On our initial visit, we were blown away by Otto & Kristi’s knowledge and we had hoped we’d be able to keep our girls together. If you are on the fence. Just do it!

- Mike Ross

We call Otto our Cesar Millan! He and Kristi with their trained staff have given us back our lives. We had a puppy with some critical health issues and has special needs. She was out of control and continually would spin in circles and snap at anything and everything. We now have three dogs who are well behaved and feel balanced on a daily basis! We would recommend You and Your Dog LLC to everyone!
