Each dog is unique and learns a little differently, training must accommodate that.


We start with an initial consult, and then from there, we cater our training to meet and exceed your goals while staying within budget. 

     The first step for any of our training is to set up our initial in home consult with you and your dog. These generally run an hour and a half to two hours.

     The first part of our consult is sitting down and discussing your goals, your concerns, gathering history on your dog(s), and some education on dog behavior. Once we have a good idea of how to help you best, we get right to work! We want you to feel confident about the training and see first hand the possibilities you and your dog can have with us. Together, we get immediate results and also supply you with long term homework.

     Once your pup(s) have been worked, with the trainer you will develop the perfect program that fits your unique needs. Everything we offer (with the exception of group classes) are individually packaged and priced. Pricing will be based on what you and the trainer decide is needed. You will get all of this info before the evaluation is over.

     Our programs can include: Private Lesson Programs, Residency Programs,

On-Leash & Off-Leash Training, Behavior Modification, Rehabilitation.


Being a pet parent can be a 10-15 year commitment, so you want to trust your dog’s training to a highly experienced, balanced and educated dog trainer. 

The focus at Heart of Gold Canine is training each individual dog based on its unique personality, aptitude, and attention span, which we discover during our time together. Dogs, just like us humans, learn best when positive reinforcement and ample motivation are used along side redirection to guide your dog through life's distractions. All of our educational programs strive to bring out the best in each unique dog, and teach you the skills necessary to bring out the best in your pet and ensure they are well-behaved at all times.​

Most programs start at home with field trips to local parks and pet friendly stores as you and your dog progress. We have been everywhere from the groomer to a wedding! We go where you and your dog needs us, including but not limited to: the vet, the groomer, a family/friends house, hiking - and the list goes on!

Group Classes

$150-300; 5-7wks

Our group classes are an extremely budget friendly way to get start your puppy or get started in obedience. They meet weekly for one hour and are best for individuals that can dedicate time to their dog between classes and every day life - one hour daily minimum. Group classes are not for everyone, if your dog has any aggression concerns or is very shy, we advise you to work one-on-one with a trainer.

Resident Training


Our immersion program/resident training/boot camp is a great option for almost any dog. From getting your puppy on/off leash manners to working though some more serious behavior concerns such as housebreaking, fearful/aggressive behaviors - this program covers all of it! The dog comes and stays in a home environment where everything is very formal, then at the end of their stay we transfer the training to the owner over several lessons. Length and cost vary!
