FORCE AND FEAR FREE
TRAINING METHODS

What It Means to Be

ONE OF THE BRAVES

B.R.A.V.E. Pet Services LLC is committed to Bringing Revolutionary And Voluntary Education to humans and their pets no matter how we assist you. Across all our services, we strive to teach pet owners how to live cooperatively with their pets without the use of force, fear, or intimidation. Whether you've come to us for dog training, pet exercise and enrichment, or pet sitting, you will receive the highest quality pet care and handling grounded in the most current studies of animal psychology and learning theory. Contact us today to begin your journey as one of the braves.

OBEDIENCE TRAINING

Participate in rigorous, fast-paced, private training sessions either in person or through our online academy.  Work with a certified professional dog trainer to teach your dog basic, advanced, and off leash obedience or address a behavioral issue.

SERVICE DOG TRAINING

Learn to train your own service dog to assist you with your disability. Our Service Dog Coach can guide you through every step of the process, from puppy selection to task training and public access. Open new avenues for independence with your canine partner at your side.

PET WALKING AND EXERCISE

Ensure your pet receives the exercise and stimulation they crave by registering them for a walk or exercise session. Rest assured knowing your dog's mind and body are being kept in top condition by our expert trainers. While you're away at work, your dog can learn leash manners, fetch, and more.

PET SITTING
AND DROP INS

Book a stay with our trusted pet care professionals and remove the stress from your travels. Receive daily photos and updates so you know exactly how your pet is spending their vacation. Sign your dog up for training so they can learn something new while you're away.

SAY ABOUT B.R.A.V.E.

"Wyatt is terrific and the positive reinforcement training is top notch. We got a rescue dog that had a few issues and Wyatt is working with us - retraining both the dog and the people - for a better life.  Really appreciate the great information he imparts and the calm, effective training he's doing with me and the dog. We've already seen improvement after only a few sessions."
