Who's A Good Boy?

Your dog isn't your adversary, don't train him like one.

    We can help to modify or change your dog’s unwanted behaviours using scientifically proven techniques that are both humane and effective.
  • Years Of Experience

We are Fangs

We work with all types of behavioral problems from the simple to the complex. Whether it’s aggression, anxiety, or anything in-between, we are here to help. We never turn a dog away because of breed or temperament. If there is a way to help you and your pup, we will work together to find it. Even when you don’t love your dog’s behavior, we know that you still love your dog.

Fangs But No Fangs proudly follows the L.I.M.A. (Least Invasive Minimally Aversive) Protocol of behavior modification. This means that we use training tools and techniques that both you and your dog will feel good about. We do not support the use of shock collars, choke chains, or anything that causes harm. When you act with compassion and intelligence, great things can happen for you both.
