The Dog Way Training method is so effective because it’s based on how dogs instinctively think, live, and develop. The most important thing to every dog is to follow the rules. Establishing ourselves as the group leader takes guidance, skill, discipline and practice. Effective canine education requires effective people education. Our goal is to provide training that teaches these skills.
For local clients, we work with you and your dog in-person to develop a
program that meets the unique needs of you and your dog. All training programs can be coupled with daycare and boarding.
We offer phone and virtual one-on-one training as well as a growing selection of training videos accessible online anytime.
We teach your dog
proper outdoor, social and behavioral skills and habits
In addition to our training services, we provide daycare and dog boarding in a safe, structured, and uniquely kennel-free environment.
"Shawn Riley is a true dog whisperer, especially for large, potentially aggressive breeds.
We tried other training with our first aggressive dog, including rewarding him with treats, but it really was ineffective. Shawn's training and guidance has been enormously helpful. He loves dogs and teaches firmness and consistency.
We are very grateful to have found Shawn."
"I did months of research and phone calls. Best decision I’ve made for myself and my dog. It works!
I'm able to ask questions at any time when I needed the extra help. My dog is very special to me and by following the lifetime training course, she knows what I’m asking of her and I am in control. This way she knows who’s in charge.
It’s been exciting having such a reliable dog."
"I have known Shawn and 'The Dog Way training for quite some time now and I am truly impressed with him and the heart he puts into his work.
Shawn consistently goes above and beyond to make sure owners and dogs are taken care of. The dogs that visit his facility are not just dogs to him, they are part of his family. He knows each one and their personalities and behaviors and always treats them as if they were his own.
I highly recommend calling Shawn and experiencing 'The Dog Way.'"
