Lead the Way - Positive Leadership Dog Training

Our Vision: A world where every dog is in a safe home.

How do we get there?


Each year, approximately 8 million stray and unwanted animals are taken in by shelters across the country. Tragically, about 3.7 million -- nearly half -- of these animals must be euthanized because good homes cannot be found for them. A common justification – behavioral issues. For dogs, these challenges can be overcome with proper training and guidance to shelter handlers and future owners. They have the ability to become wonderful companions when placed in the care of a benevolent leader.

We do this two ways. First, by coaching our clients to discover the compelling signals our canines use to communicate and how to become compassionate leaders for them. Second by educating rescue, shelter and other nonprofit organizations’ volunteers with our leadership style, giving them the tools to train a dog once thought of as a hopeless case, a chance for hope to find a loving home.
