***Notice from Joy: The past year with so many people bringing home pandemic dogs has been exhausting, and I need to focus on my family. For the moment, I am only taking new clients who are referrals from previous or current clients. I apologize for the inconvenience and hope to begin taking more new clients soon.***

Joy Aldrich, CPDT-KA, of Joy for Dogs provides humane and effective private, in-home training based on current research in canine behavior to teach basic cues, and prevent or resolve problem behavior in family dogs. Joy is committed to using the most up-to-date, force-free methods of training, including clicker training, to help clients’ dogs become joyful family members. I look forward to working with you and your dog! Have a sniff around the site!
