Is your dog running your life?

Do you leave your dog home because you are embarrassed about their behavior in public?

Do you love your dog but struggle with his or her undesirable behaviors? Is your dog jumping on people, lunging at people or other dogs, being aggressive or acting fearful?

Does your dog tow you down the street at the end of a leash?


Welcome to Hope 4 Your Canine!

We are Rochester's number one place for the dog training answers you desire. We will help you create the life you envisioned when you brought a dog into your home. Find out how easy it is to have a happy healthy relationship with your dog.
Using positive based training, each dog is evaluated as an individual. We don't tell you how to train your dog over the phone. We meet each dog and all of it's family members. We don't use shock collars or methods that are considered forceful.
We offer family friendly training and different solutions for all lifestyles. When you are too busy, allow us to take the leash and handle the training for you in YOUR home or our group facilities. We also offer private lessons with you at your home, it's your choice!
"We will work with any dog." Amy Holtz and her team are available for private consultations, group classes, and demonstrations to help any individual or group learn how to have a happy healthy relationship with their dogs. Please call or text 585-261-1088 for an appointment.


Introducing "What's Next"

This class is designed for dogs that have successfully completed our beginners or CGC class. We will start by brushing up on the basics and end with hand signals as well as off leash or distance commands. This class is designed for dogs 12 months and up. You must have solid basic skills with us or other trainers. Come out - have some fun and socialize your pup!
