New Dawn is the place to go if you have a dog with problems or you want to avoid creating problems for your dog. A relaxed, competitiv
e free place to learn with your dog, develop teamwork and have fun...! My dog starts wagging her tail as soon as we exit the interstate . We love Ann and all the other staff at New Dawn. They provide an enriching environmen t for both dog and owner. I highly recommend them and their experience !
New Dawn is exceptiona
l - from the moment that you arrive, you know that this is going to be a special experience . You are personally greeted, and brought to an area set up just for you and your dog. ... Two seats are waiting for you and a large bowl of water is there for your four footed companion. If your goal is to build a relationsh ip with your dog, this is the place for you. Their philosophy promotes safety and respect - it is not about forcing your will upon your dog. My dog tended to lunge at every distractio n when on his leash. He also had difficulty learning some basic concepts like "down." Using clicker training and positive reinforcem ent, my dog quickly adopted the behaviors I was seeking. There was no pulling, pushing, yanking or discipline . Just a few treats and the results happened right before my eyes. I have seen other programs and I can happily report that this is the best program I have ever seen.

Taking my dog to New Dawn was the best thing I could have done. He loves the instructor
s and would do anything for them. They were so patient with him and his insecuriti es disappeare d in no time. As... a fur baby parent I appreciate d that they showed me how to work with him and gave me homework and a goal for us to work towards each time. I highly recommend New Dawn if you are looking for training.
A few days after adopting our large 75lb dog we realized he was very leash reactive and fear aggressive
with other dogs. After looking around for help we found Ann and the Behavior Center. Our Roscoe ...went from lunging at dogs a block away to being able to walk within feet of strange dogs with no issues. Ann gave us lots of games to play and homework between lessons to boost Roscoe's confidence , and give us the tools we needed to handle our big baby. Not only is he great on walks now but is one of the most "well behaved" dogs I've ever owned, and we frequently get compliment s on our walks at how attentive he is with me. We can't thank Ann enough for all her help!

Great group of trainers. They are very patience, and calm which is so important to any dog that is shy or reactive. As an instructor
my self with my own dog training business I would highly recomm...end New Dawn.
Awesome Canine Connection
