Do you love your dog, but you wish they would…

  • Walk nicely without dragging you down the street?
  • Stop jumping on people?
  • Learn to settle down and be calm?
  • Just  follow commands more consistently?

We can help, even if you have tried other training methods that didn’t work.

You don’t have to struggle in a group class, or try to figure out training on your own with so many conflicting training videos on Youtube. We’re here so you can finally have a happy, yet controllable dog!

We specialize in board-and-train and we have private lesson options, too!

Dog training that works!
Just ask our past clients.

We were blown away

At 15 months of age our German Shepherd was becoming strong willed & difficult to walk. She started showing aggression towards other dogs and had the bad habit of nipping ankles & jumping up on folks to get attention. We dropped Annie off for 2 weeks & watched Carla work miracles overnight. Wow!  We looked forward to the daily videos & were blown away at the success Annie was having. Annie has been back home with us for a week now & we can not stress how much we appreciate Carla, her training methods & the tools she has given us to live in harmony with our sweet Annie.

Learning so much in a short amount of time

We are not nearly finished with the sessions yet but we are already seeing dramatic results. Carla is very knowledgeable and knows how to read dog and owners’ language.

Everyone was talking about how well behaved my boxer puppy was at an autocross event!

Carla is extremely passionate about what she does and she really understands dog behavior on another level and easy ways to get them to comply with what you want. I can’t rave on about her enough !!

I can see a huge improvement

Carla was excellent to work with. She structured each of our sessions to build up fundamental skills with our new puppy, but also left enough space for us to work on specific issues as they arose. The lessons were constructive and gave our family specific things to practice over the week between sessions. I can see a huge improvement in our puppy over the five weeks we worked with Carla!

Helped with significant behavior issues

We had significant problems and she patiently worked through them with us. One pup was boarded for three weeks and then she did in-home services with the other. Highly recommend.

Prompt, professional, easy to work with

I could tell right away that she loves dogs and knows how to speak their language. Every day I got pictures and videos of the training progress being made as well as just some fun, happy doggy pics and vids. Upon return, Carla took the time to teach us exactly what worked for Harper and gave us all the tools to continue the progress at home. Carla was prompt, professional, quick to respond, well-spoken, and easy to work with. She also picked up and dropped off—big bonus for a busy mom of 5.

She was terrific.

She is gentle and lovely with the dogs who clearly love her and it is very mutual. She answered all our questions, including email questions after hours — and she was easy to learn from.

Trainer Carla with her dog Calvin. Imagine trusting your dog to stay with you offleash! We'll teach you how to get better behavior from your dog than you ever thought possible.

At FluentDog we proudly practice the NePoPo® training system. Carla LaFleur is a graduate of the NePoPo® Gold School. In this program, she passed a rigorous animal behavior theory course with a 99% final grade, and in the practicum portion, learned how to train dogs to perform reliably on cue from world-renowned trainers Bart and Michael Bellon. 

The day will come in your dog’s training when he decides not to do as you ask. What do you do in that moment? In NePoPo®, we prepare for that moment with animal welfare in mind every step of the way. A dog trained in NePoPo® is not demotivated by a correction–instead, he goes into the correct behavior with heart and soul. NePoPo® is all about helping the dog to find his advantage in the behaviors we want, and learn to love his work. The behavior itself eventually becomes the reward.
