We do it for the love of the dog!

A properly trained dog is a happy healthy pet, and nobody understands that better than Gaye Amick. Her goal is to provide you and your four-legged family member the best one on one dog training available in your area. All puppy and adult dog training services are individually tailored to fit your pet's personality and meet your needs.


While professional one-on-one dog training may cost more than conventional large group classes, the benefits greatly outweigh the additional investment. Large class environments seldom provide the results you desire due to the lack of individual attention.


The benefits of professional and individual dog training include:

* one-on-one training designed to meet your dog's personality, aptitude, social development, and your family's goals

* all the attention during your training session will be focused on you and your dog

* training sessions can be scheduled to match your calendar

continuing assistance is always available

* you will be working with a professionally trained and experienced dog trainer who is familiar with various training methods and problem-solving techniques.

* you and your dog will not get lost in the circus atmosphere of group sessions, club training or pet store classes




Whether your dog has a pedigree, was adopted from an animal shelter or neighborhood stray you fell in love with, Northern Sky Obedience Academy (now known as "Gaye Amick Dog Training" ) offers a full-line of dog training services designed to help make your best friend even better.
