Humane, Scientific, Effective.


Our methods are force, pain and fear free and based exclusively in modern science. Our techniques are based in operant and classical conditioning, and function on both a psychological and biological level. The goal is to teach an animal how to behave in any given situation, while employing management strategies to replace and extinguish unwanted behaviors. These techniques not only create reliable behavior they strengthen relationships between owners and animals. Our trainers maintain continued education to ensure that our clients receive the top industry advice. 


We have something for everyone.

Whether you’re looking for a custom tailored plan, or to dive into a class, we have you covered.

Our first class at Simply Animal Behavior and Training, Puppy Basics, was really great. The trainer, Max, explained each technique clearly and spent equal time with each puppy. I am looking forward to continuing our classes to train our puppy and her humans.

I’d like to thank Max for being a great teacher with lots of knowledge and patience. My dog and I really enjoyed the class and could see ourselves doing another course.

Sara is knowledgeable and patient. We have a protective dog that we need help with since she is around others often and has gotten aggressive on several occasion. She has given us hope.
