We Love "Pit bulls!"
Our modern and effective training methods mean you and your dog will enjoy training. We help you teach your dog to make the decisions we want them to make. They learn that doing so is fun, enjoyable, and gets them what they want. What teacher doesn’t dream of a student who LOVES to learn? A dog who makes good choices is a happy, well-behaved and well-adjusted family member!
Atta Pup! offers several ways to personalize your training plan. See our package and program pages for more details.
You and your dog learning together. We teach you how to teach your dog through one-on-one coaching and instruction.
Your dog learns while you're at work. Simplify your life and let a professional dog trainer teach your dog new skills.
We have a passion for "pit bulls" and "pit bull"-type dogs! Atta Pup! specializes in helping pitties live happy lives in their homes; not because “pit bulls” require specialized training, but because their owners often encounter prejudiced environments.
Atta Pup! prides itself on offering a space free from judgement, stereotyping or bigotry. We know that learning isn't breed-specific. Every dog deserves to be treated with compassion and understanding, regardless of their appearance.
Atta Pup! offers training services from a knowledgeable, professional, and qualified dog trainer. We are dedicated to remaining up-to-date with current research and findings in the fields of canine cognition, dog behavior, ethology, and the applications of these fields to dog training.
But we’re not all lab coats and dour faces, we also just plain love dogs and their people!
