We offer a number of canine related services to the northern New Jersey Area.

When we first speak, we will discuss in detail what issues you are having and what you are looking to improve upon. Once you become a client, we will provide you with a questionnaire, which will be filled out prior to our first appointment. The information in this questionnaire will inform me how to best tailor training specifically to your dog.

Advantages of Skype Dog Training:

  1. Provides easy and flexible scheduling – provides much more flexibility in time since there is no travel involved
  2. Location is not a restriction - If you are across the country, you can still take advantage of our many years of education, experience, and credentials to help you get results you are desperate for
  3. Financial perks – Skype training is much cheaper than in-home training since the travel piece is eliminated. Save a few bucks while still getting the help you need!

Each Skype Session will include a very detailed, emailed follow-up report which includes everything that was discussed and accomplished during the session, as well as any tips and advice we think will help you.

Too busy to train your dog? Frustrated and want help while you go away on vacation or relax at home? Then you need The Canine Cure Board and Train. We do the heavy lifting for you and give you the assistance you need to transfer the skills to your home environment once the dog returns.

We do this in a way that will not cause any fear or pain to your dog. We won’t scare them, use shock collars, or anything that will cause pain. We will use science-based methods of training that are fun and set very clear expectations to your dog of what is expected. Board and Train is held at behavior consultants Tanya or Caitlin's house. Dogs must be friendly with other dogs and children.

All Training Packages Include:

•Free email and phone support for the life of the dog.

•Personalized emailed homework of what was accomplished in each session.


Training will be tailored to owner’s and dog’s exact needs. It can include behaviors above or others which will be discussed prior to training commencing. The training includes pre-training session at drop-off and follow up session at the conclusion of training, one hour follow-up session in your home once the dog returns home to help with the transition, and lifetime support through phone, email, text. Also included are boarding and training, medications given if necessary, play time with other dogs, and walks. 

Dog MUST be dropped off at trainer's home for the start of the program. We do not transport dogs to or from board and trains.

Pre-Pet Counseling

The majority of people tend to buy a dog simply because they fall in love with it. (Can you blame them?)

Unfortunately, many of these poor dogs wind up in shelters because their owners did not know how to control the behavior of the specific breed, didn’t know their exercise requirements, and so many other reasons.

•The best step to take is to be informed BEFORE you get a dog and we can help you with this.

•We will meet for approximately an hour/hour and a half and discuss everything you are looking for in a pet.

•We will guide you to make the best decision for you, your family, and your new pup!

•Free email and phone support for the life of the dog.
