What dog skills and behaviors will serve your family best?
Whether you’re dreaming of dog training for good manners, clever skills and/or a truly amazing bond, we can help!
Your furry friend’s actions – both “good” and “bad” – stem from a unique blend of individual personality and canine instincts. Working with those traits, rather than against them, is the first step in helping you and your dog develop trust and rapport.
At White Mountain College for Pets our professional instructors bring over 70 combined years of experience providing a gentle, yet effective approach to all forms of dog training:

Customized Dog Behavior Training
When your dog’s behavior is disrupting your life, it’s stressful! Maybe you’ve tried all the tips, but simply can’t stop their behavior. The truth is, many behavior issues are just NOT simple.
The root may be a medical cause; a complex chain of learned responses; anxiety with multiple triggers; or something even less obvious. And sometimes a behavior we consider an issue might be normal to the dog.
As professional behavior consultants we consider all those possibilities. We peel back the layers of your dog’s issue, and offer sound steps to begin modifying the dog’s behavior. Our skilled trainers work closely with you from start to finish to make sure that you and your new partner kindle the best relationship possible.

A wet nose and a furry head can really brighten a person’s day! But specific therapy dog training is needed in order for your dog to serve in care settings, e.g., hospitals, retirement homes, nursing homes, mental institutions and schools.
Our Therapy Dog training program is customized to ensure your dog develops the skills they need to pass complete the Therapy Dog certification process. (If you believe your dog already has the 10 Fundamental Skills listed, we can go right to the CGC certificate test!)
