Why Sura Dog Training?

What Our Customers Are Saying

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Ty met us at a park to help us with our 6 month old puppy, Sasha, who has exhibited some fearful habits and also puppy biting, jumping, etc. Right away Ty established an excellent rapport with Sasha, who was sitting on his leg and trying to snuggle up to him within minutes. He had a well prepared list of things for us to go over based on the intake form I’d sent him, but he was also totally able to switch gears and address other concerns my husband and I brought up that had not been on the list. Lots of really great ideas. His methods are scientifically backed, gentle, positive, and dog-friendly!

Ty was incredibly kind and insightful. He genuinely cares about the well-being of both our dog and us as humans. I’ve worked with a trainer in the past that was abrasive and condescending. Ty was a breath of fresh air in that department. He listened to our issues without judgement and offered straight forward answers to all our questions. Can’t recommend Ty enough!

I found Sura Dog Training on the internet, I was looking for help with my 5 month old puppy (Miniature Schnauzer). Ty was very responsive to my inquiry and we hired him to help us with our training. I was impressed with his certification. But more impressed with his down to business approach. He wasted none of our 90 min session. He gave us practical and doable techniques to use for our puppy. We had a list of issues and we covered applicable training for each and every one of them. I would highly recommend him!

Ty was recommended to me for advice on helping me be a better mom to my two Pitties. When we added an older female in August to our Male we have had since September 2018, they have been brats. A couple of fights with a little blood were enough, we needed help. Ty was able to assess, give me literature, show me technique, and get my male to walk with him in an hour!!! It was amazing!!! I look forward to some tune ups to make sure we are making good use of the techniques. I highly recommend Ty! He was professional, calming (for me and the dogs) and incredibly knowledgeable.


We all want the best for our dogs. We also want help that actually works.

If you need help with issues like:

  • Potty training
  • Socialization (liking and respecting people)
  • Separation Anxiety
  • Crate training
  • Chewing inappropriate items
  • Off-leash Obedience
  • Excessive Barking
  • Puppy Biting
  • Pulling on Leash

Sura Dog Training can help! 96% of our clients only need one session to see significant improvement. Typically, for most other trainers, it’s 8 to 10 sessions.

Harsh and frightening training methods can permanently damage the human-dog relationship. But just as importantly: they simply don’t work long-term.

At Sura Dog Training, we teach the dog that training is fun and we make life easier for you and your dog. We use science-based, reward-based, positive reinforcement dog training methods–and we always strive to see the dog’s point of view.

My mentor, Dr. Ian Dunbar, is a world renowned dog trainer and animal behaviorist who created the first off-leash puppy socialization and training classes. He also revitalized now-standard training methods such as lure/reward training–the same methods I use.

I’ve had years of experience working closely with a wide variety of dogs, and my personal dogs are Alaskan Malamutes (notorious for being “difficult” to train).

Whatever breed of dog you have, however difficult the issue may seem, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Let us make a difference for you and your dog.
