 Dog Parents,

 

I’m not your typical trainer, I enjoy working with all dogs big and small, psycho and non-psycho dogs.  I am very passionate about dogs and behavior. I cuss like a sailor and wear RBF on my face most days but I truly have a heart of gold for teaching dogs and their owners. I’m passionate about living your best life with your dog. Perfect dogs aren’t born they are created by our guidance and expectations.

We love our badass dog parents that are ready for a change and want to help their dogs be as awesome as they are.

Even as a dog trainer, I have been in your shoes. My dogs have had leash reactivity, socialization issues, or behavioral problems. I’ve had to rehabilitate and work my ass off to get them where they are today. That’s why I know what works and what doesn’t as a trainer. 

Perfect dogs don’t make badass owners. Period. 

We want your life and relationship with your dog to be as stress-free as Oakley in this picture.

 

XOXO,

Ruth Hayter

Owner & Head Trainer

A-Z DOGS TESTIMONIALS

Moxie & Sophie

"After two of our fur babies had a freak accident with each other that spiraled quickly into reactiveness, aggression and lack of trust with each other, we knew we needed help before things got any worse.  Ruth is extremely knowledgeable, kind and very understanding. Ruth has not only helped our girls to be able to coexist again and start repairing their relationship, but she has also helped my husband and I to be even better dog parents!! If I could give more than 5 stars I would in a heartbeat! Ruth is incredible at what she does and will love and care for your pup(s) just as much as you do, all while helping them to be the best doggo!! We are so fortunate and grateful that we get to continue to learn and grow with the best!"

We LOVE Ruth! She has incredible knowledge and a great program for your dog/puppy. She was very personal with us and we are still in touch! Her programs are so worth it if you are looking to train your dog with the best! I will be continuing into an adult program with her once my pup gets older!

"Ruth is an incredible dog trainer! She was knowledgeable about the process and was always available to answer questions I had throughout the week in between our training sessions. I have my first puppy ever so she has been so great with teaching me everything I need to know about positive reinforcement. I can't recommend her enough! If you need help with your pup's behaviors, definitely give her a call."
