Why StairStep Dog Training?

Based in Port Saint Lucie, FL

StairStep Dog Training is named after the methods used by Greg Hollen.  We know that everything must be learned in order just as steps must be taken in order.  For a dog’s well being, it is always best to teach basic behaviors first before starting advanced work.  Just as we have to learn addition and subtraction before multiplication and division, dogs need to learn basics before moving on to to learn advanced behaviors.  

Training with your dog is more than teaching them to sit or lay down.  It is about relationships.  Building your relationship through training allows you to take your dog anywhere dog friendly without stress or struggle.
