Dog training is less about training your dog and more about understanding the needs of your dog & how to work with him/her. Inappropriate behavior is a symptom of the problem, not the problem itself. At KnowPlace Pets - Stay & Play, Inc., our one on one training and behavioral programs are designed around your dogs particular needs - based on breed, home environment, history (abuse/neglect) and current behavioral issues. All training conducted is POSITIVE REINFORCEMENT based, play, fun and exciting. Absolutely no aggression techniques are used in our training programs. Every dog is not the same, so applying the same training program to each dog would be unfair to him/her.
We offer board & train, one on one sessions (your location and ours) and will be offering classes soon. As a thank you for rescuing your dog we offer a 10% discount on all training packages.
Check back to find out when our classes will be offered.

Marley is a 5 month old deaf Great Dane puppy in this video (the trainers dog). Though he failed a few (bow & shake). He completed sit, down, over (a little slow), drop it, come and touch. Thumbs up is GOOD & the duck quack is NO
Satchmo was a 7 month old Aussie mix. He came to us for training due to his hyperactivity, jumping, mouthing and other inappropriate behaviors. Here's what his Mom has to say now "My Satch is as sweet as sugar because he spent time with you...he is everything I hoped for...girl your da best"
Sierra was a 9 month old Golden Retriever who was so over the top she couldn't keep all 4's on the ground among other problems. Here's what Sierra's Mom has to say now "...Thank you for everything you have done for us!! Sierra is a great part of our family....finally!! It's nice to give her the good attention that we have always wanted to give her but never did because she was always a basket case!!"
Barclay (Stock photo) was a year old Cockapoo who was out of control and had no interest in doing anything when told. In a few short weeks a star is born. Barclay's Mom had this to say "Barcs is doing well, but he still likes to dive roll into the sidewalk, do a complete roll, lay on his side or his back for a few moments, then keep walking. Comical, yet annoying. Otherwise, he has been a gem and a joy
Gwen (far left) is an 11 months old deaf and partially blind Great Dane puppy (the trainers dog) in this video. She performed, sit, down, over, off, place, settle down, come - all with a huge smile on her face.
