The Knotty Dog strives to empower dog owners to pursue the best in themselves and in their dogs.

We believe that when it comes to our dogs, it starts with us and our relationship with them. As a society we have trended towards calling our dogs our fur babies however in the same way our responsibility as parents with children is to teach them good decision making in order for them to grow, our responsibility to our dogs is the very same. We believe that teaching clear communication and fostering a relationship with respect and relevance are a cornerstone of a healthy relationship.

Discomfort is typically the greatest catalyst for change. Understanding that, our dogs misbehavior can often be one of the greatest motivators for us as humans to work on ourselves… our leadership, our energy, our boundaries, and our personal growth.
