Dog Training: Manners and Leash Walking

Puppy Socialization



in-home training

Our approach to training is built on trust. All methods are force-free and based on Learning Theory, using positive reinforcement to shape emotional response. Each client receives a full behavior assessment at the beginning of training and a custom plan for all behavior modifications. Rates are hourly and packages are available.



Day adventures typically last 2-3 hours and include any of the following; hiking, swimming, group play, retail shopping, urban hiking, and more! They provide both mental and physical activity, as well as an opportunity to socialize and interact with humans and other dogs. Rates are per individual dog. Please add $20 per additional adventurer.




Group Classes

When applicable. Group classes are taught all around the Chattanooga area and offer an opportunity to learn about dog behavior from Nicole at a reduced rate. If you have a group that might be interested in hosting a class please contact us for additional information.



Too often 20-30 minute walks are not enough. We offer hour-long walks for the more active dog. If you need a shorter excursion close to home then a Recess walk is for you. Please add $15 per additional walker.




drop-in visit

If your day is long or you are going out of town we can check-in on your dog. Our drop-in visits typically take 1/2 - 1 hour for potty, feeding, and playtime/exercise.

Nicole from Recess has been nothing but a pure lifesaver for me and my three beautiful babies. Her true knowledge and ability to deal with the dogs that I own has put such an ease in my life. Her experience and expertise is top notch and I don’t go a day without trusting her with my dogs.
