About Us

Nick Garrison
Head Dog Trainer

My name is Nick Garrison. I have worked with fearful dogs, neglected dogs, pure bred dogs and just your average mutt. I especially like working with puppies and adolescent dogs. I have helped train pups to be service dogs and have fostered dogs. I am a graduate of Davenport University and CATCH Canine Trainers Academy: a state-licensed, 10-phase course in dog behavior and training which includes hands-on training, behavior fieldwork, mentor trainer evaluations and written exams. I spent 30 years in the corporate world training and as a parent and grandparent know how to work with children of all ages.

I am proficient in

  • Safe and effective handling of dogs for shelters, day cares and training situations
  • Dog developmental stages from puppyhood to adulthood
  • Basic health routines and disease prevention
  • Behavior evaluation/temperment testing
  • Pros and cons of equipment and training tools
  • Learning theory, classical and operant conditioning
  • Behavior problem solving
  • Speaking and leadership skills with clients in multiple settings
  • Creating effective training plans

So how does our dog training work?

We use food, kindness, praise and a lot of patience when training your dog. We do not use choke collars, prong collars or e-collars.  We follow the LIMA method of dog training, which is Least Intrusive Minimally Aversive training. A set of humane and effective tactics to train your dog. We work with you to determine how to help you and your dog become the best team possible. Every dog and every owner has their own individual needs. 

Our dog training is done in your home where everyone is most comfortable.

We will take the time to train all family members on how to generate the best possible behavior for your dog.  You read that right I train both you and your dog. At first we thought of naming the company Good Owner Happy Dog, but not sure everyone would understand.
