TLC LABRADORS offers professional dogs training for all breeds of dogs. 

We have experience in capitalizing on the strengths, minimizing the weaknesses, and adapting to the learning styles of individual dogs in order to bring out the best that they can be. We are known for getting good results with difficult dogs, soft dogs, and dogs with problems, as well as for our success with dog other have said could not be trained. Our success has been with all breeds of dogs.

Every dog trains differently.  We have a general training program for our dogs but every dog trains differently.  Each dog has different things that motivate them to want to work for you.  We take the time and patience it take to figure out what motivates  each and every single dog, and then modify our training techniques to each dog.  This allows us to get the most possible potential out out each dog so we can develop it into the type of dog  that you hope to own.  Thanks to our record of satisfied owners, and those that have seen our dogs work, referrals are our greatest source of business.

Below are our training programs that we offer.  These are general outlines of our training programs. The amount of time that it take each dog may vary a bit depending on your expectations of the dog.  If you have any questions about our programs please feel free to email or call us.  We would be more than happy to answer your questions.

Letter of appreciation from client:

Hi Mark and Traci,

I wanted to tell you how happy I am with Probie and Cocoa. We  were very excited to have them both get their junior titles this summer. I was thrilled the first time I ran Probie and he nailed the marks. You have done an excellent job with them and this spring I expect great things in senior trials. I also appreciate your help teaching me how to better handle my dogs. It has been worth every penny having the dogs with you. Both of these dogs are TLC dogs and your commitment to breeding excellence shines through. Again, I thank you for all your help and feel lucky to have had you work with the dogs. We will be back!

Steve Gossage
