the Perks of Being in the
Steady Hand Family

Experience the joy of watching your dog confidently navigate real-world scenarios during our Social Saturdays. These curated events provide a safe and fun environment for your pup to socialize and practice their skills, ensuring they stay sharp in any situation.

Enjoy peace of mind when you need to board your furry family member. Our vacation boarding not only ensures their well-being but also includes reinforcing their training. Your dog returns home refreshed, well-behaved, and ready for continued success.

  • Mix of in-home & public, client-focused sessions
  • 2 weeks of boarding with weekly visits.
  • The popular obedience suite: recall, down, stay, sit, walk at the heel & boundaries.

If you want your dog to show up more in your life - and in a bigger way! In order for that to become a possibility, we must prepare them for those moments!

PAW Program

If you want a more confident dog and a tighter bond, a dog that looks at obstacles as a game to be won!


  • Engaging, easy-to-follow exercises
  • In-home sessions (no boarding)
  • Heavy education on puppy psychology, habit-setting, and body language

For puppies 6 months and under, this program is focused on building good habits to prep them for aging. Have your puppy learn to pay attention to you and learn to control their impulses in order to better be able to accompany you on adventure after adventure.

We offer a free, in-person evaluation (not just over the phone) because we really want to get know you, your dog, and your situation so we can know best how to help.


Your dog joins us for two weeks of immersive training, setting the foundation for a well-behaved companion. While goodbyes may be tough, we promise the results are worth it.

lifestyle immersion

Welcome your dog back home with a new set of skills. We guide you through in-home sessions, ensuring a smooth transition and reinforcing the learned behaviors in not only your home, but out in public. 

Continuted support

Once you're in the family, you're in the family. We are invested in your long-term success, offering tune-up sessions, social classes, and a supportive community.





For you and your dog! Lifestyle training helps your dog become more confident and adaptable, which ultimately leads to a better quality of life. A well-trained dog is more likely to be included in more activities and outings with their family. When dogs are well-behaved and can be taken out into public places, they are more likely to get exercise and social interaction.

Better Quality of Life

Why lifestyle training?

Lifestyle training strengthens the bond between you and your dog. When you teach your dog how to behave in different situations, it helps build trust and a deeper understanding between the two of you. It also makes your life together much smoother and enjoyable.

Improved Relationship Between You and Your Dog

A dog that is well-trained is much easier to enjoy and less stressful to have around. When your dog knows what's expected of them, it reduces the chances of them misbehaving, getting into trouble, or causing damage. This means less stress, embaressment, and frustration for you as the owner.

Easier to Manage and Less Stressful

"We can now enjoy our time together with our dog, without any stress. This training has made a huge difference in our lives as a family and we are so grateful for Steady Hand!”

- The Hayden Family

We are now able to bring her hiking, camping and to public places (ie. breweries!)

"but was immediately reassured and relieved when I received a photo of my pup snuggled up to Alexander. I met with them after the first week for our first session and noticed a difference right away.”

- Hope seymour

I was nervous at first as the program began with 2 weeks of board and train...
