More Fun with Your Dog

Learning doesn’t have to end with people when we become adults and it also doesn’t have to end with our dogs. We can continue learning together to enhance the bond and teach fun tricks and behaviors. Amazing leash skills make taking your dog shopping with you a lot easier. They are also required for therapy dog work, service dog work, and it is really helpful for dog agility training. Rally is a fun way to get started!

Earn your Trick Training Title!

Does your dog know their basic manners? That’s all you need for your to earn their first trick dog title! There are so many fun, useful and interesting tricks to teach. Let’s get started!

Rally Obedience

Rally is an exciting sport that builds your teamwork and tests your dog’s basic manners in a fun way. It involves numbered courses where the dog walks next to you  while you do fun moves like big circles, walking backwards, figure 8s and more! Rally is a fun sport for both dogs and their people!

Nosework Training

Does your dog sniff everything? Is your dog anxious and worried? Nosework is a great game to play to build your dog’s confidence and reduce your dog’s anxieties.

Therapy Dog Training

Therapy dogs are trained to bring love and joy to patients in hospitals, hospice and more. Therapy dog training is a rewarding experience for all involved. Watch this video and see if your dog could do this valuable work!

Do you want your dog to be able to focus on you anywhere?


Do you want to do more with your dog?


Is your dog relentlessly energetic?


Do you want to do service dog training or trick training or therapy dog work?


Do you want to do fun things with your dog that keep you and your dog happy and fulfilled?



We schedule our sessions when it works for you!


Group dog training classes can be great, but too often the results stay behind in the classroom. Instead, let’s do the training where you need your dog to behave his best—wherever that may be.

Time Efficient

Your time is valuable. In home training ensures that you get the information that you need in an efficient manner.


We customize our sessions to meet your dog’s training needs and your training goals.
Mariah is a great balance of encouraging and humorous which works well when you have THREE dachshunds that all have different needs. She works well with my teenager with reactivity issues, my old-souled fearful girl that is scared of her own shadow and my new puppy teaching her general manners and obedience. I have tried other trainers. Mariah definitely hits the mark with her positive reinforcement and patience while training the humans and the dogs in the house. -Michelle G.
Mariah is as much people trainer as she is a dog trainer. We have used her in-home training services for the foundation skills and commands as well as her group classes for both of rescue dogs. One of the benefits of the latter for us is the ability for one of our dogs – who has a hard time meeting new dogs on the leash – to socialize with other dogs in a structured environment. On top of all the training, she always does a great job with follow-up and additional educational material. I wish training with Mariah was mandatory for all new dog owners. -Jack T.
Fantastic positive reinforcement techniques proved to be incredibly effective for my high-energy yet shy chihuahua-mix who had a fear of others’ hands (a problem that sometimes led her to snap at other people!). I highly recommend the Mariah Hinds to anyone who is seeking behavioral modification for their pup(s). Thank you, Mariah! – Crystal P.
Teddy, a rescued Australian Shepherd mix, has several fear issues and would respond aggressively, but Mariah was terrific at introducing him to new situations slowly and teaching me how to look for his cues and ease his anxieties. We’re now enjoying walks together – even in crowded areas with numerous triggers. -Melanie M.
After becoming aggressive towards several of my friends, I was desperate to find someone to help Barney and I. Since Barney’s very first training session with Mariah, I have seen great changes in him. His confidence has increased, he is able to calm down easier, he is less anxious, and he is overall a happier and friendlier dog. -Marissa Z.
His over all anxiety is down! Thank you so much for taking the time to train with me and mister Harvey! We appreciate you and will recommend you to anyone who is having behavior problems! -Mary H.
