Step # 1
An Assessment is the first step to training and can be scheduled over the phone and at that time we will decide your weekly slot that will follow. The Initial Intake Assessment is a time to meet with our Lead Trainer to discuss your goals and concerns; and evaluate your pup to decide the best training approach for their individual needs.

Mocha spent 3 amazing weeks with The Balanced Dog. She is a 2 year old rescued husky who spent time on her own living on the streets. Lyndsi and her team turned our stubborn girl around. She is amazing on leash, biking, running, basic commands and amazing with our kids. We give The Balanced Dog the highest recommendation!!
