  1. Understanding your expectations for your new/adolescent dog,  
  2. Providing you with a comprehensive training plan for your goals, 
  3. And showing you how to become in-sync with your dog through proven, science-based methods

So that you can be proud of your new dog and show him/her off to all your friends and family.
