Our Balanced Theory

We base our training around the "Classical Conditioning" model (a.k.a. "Pavlovian" or "respondent conditioning"). This includes developing conditioned or automatic reflexes to commands. In its simplest form (after proper conditioning), when the owner says "sit," the dog automatically sits without thinking about it. Our unique techniques ensure our program is a success no matter what behavior we encounter.


  • Empowering Owners
    We empower Owners to train so their dog knows who to obey at all times.
  • Personalized
    We deal with problem behaviors on a personal basis.
  • Environment Specific
    We train wherever issues tend to arise (i.e. jogging, park, home).
  • Supportive
    We support Owners in the off-hours (when training is "not in session").
  • Involved
    We work with all members of the household.
  • Simplified & Customized
    We plan training around the owner's schedule and require only 20 min/day follow-up practice.
  • Continued Training
    Additional programs / group sessions offered after in-home training.
  • Lifetime Investment
    We follow up & are invested in the owner's success long-term.
  • Satisfaction Ratings
    Our high client satisfaction rating sets us apart from competitors.

Seneca is very professional and friendly. He has done wonders with our rescue dog who was afraid of everything. He is now ready for public access and his service certification thanks to Seneca. I highly recommend Seneca for your training needs.

Seneca was fantastic! Showed us how to be accountable during training so that we got the most out of each session, and then training in between. He is the man! He always explained things to be relatable to help even further. I give him 10 stars if we could!

Seneca is an outstanding dog trainer! His expertise, patience, and genuine love for dogs was evident in every session. He tailored every training to suit my dog's needs and made the process enjoyable for both of us. Seneca's methods are effective and compassionate, resulting in remarkable improvements in my dog's behavior. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a skilled and dedicated trainer. Thank you, Seneca, for transforming our training experience!
