I have been training my dogs with Impetus even before the studio was built. Veronica Selco is my mentor and I have had the pleasure of training several of my dogs with her guidance. The positive reinforcement approach to obedience , CGC classes, K9 nosework and trick classes is the professional way to train. The other trainers are young smart and well versed in all types of dog training. Since not all dogs are the same the trainers are able to adapt the training to suit the behavior of different dogs. The studio is clean and has all the right tools for successful and fun training. Veronica and her team make classes that I look forward to attending for years to come. More...

We have been training weekly with Veronica Selco for 2 1/2 years! We have two older dogs; and one who is very reactive to other dogs, so it was a blessing to find Impetus and great Nosework Classes that allow our pups to have fun, be stimulated, challenged, and receive nothing but positive feedback! In addition, we turned to Veronica with a rescue dog we were fostering who had behavioral issues. She worked hand-in-hand with us to evaluate her needs and begin a positive training program that resulted in her finding her perfect home. It’s a family at Impetus, not just a training facility with a myriad of programs. Join in! Your pets will love it and you will become part of a great community of caring and knowledgeable trainers and friends. It’s a great place with wonderful programs that will enrich your lives as well as your pet’s! Updated Review, May 2020 More...

I absolutely love Veronica and her team of trainers; Kylie and Vivian. They are all highly skilled and practice no force training, which is great. Positive reinforcement is the way to go. They offer a wide variety of classes and also specialize in nosework. Veronica hosts trials and people come from all different states to compete. If you are looking to train your dog and let them have FUN doing so, imPETus training is the way to go. I highly recommend Veronica and her team. NOTE: Oh, and my furry son LOVE their nosework and fitness classes. And he is a picky little boy, he is-King Von Nugget, and he recommends them too! More...

We took our two small dogs to a five-week training session at Impetus and couldn't be happier with the results. Kylie was an amazing trainer -- incredibly knowledgeable, patient, and kind. Before training, our dogs were getting into physical fights almost weekly as our Beagle worked through some newly-developed aggression issues. After just five weeks, we noticed a dramatic decrease in his aggression, and both dogs getting along so much better. We know we've got lots more work to do with them at home but I can genuinely say this training has already improved their quality of life -- and ours! More...

We had the most fun with Vivian and the trainers at Impetus! We brought our 4 month old shiba, Rocky, for the puppy kindergarten class. The structure and leadership in the class was amazing. We got started learning all sorts of good behaviors through fun clicker games and got to socialize with other puppies in a well-monitored situation. I can't recommend them enough, every puppy (and puppy parents) should start out here! More...

The trainers are awesome, very knowledgeable and caring. A happy well socialized puppy was my goal with my puppy. Impetus Animal Training by Holistic Hounds has the best puppy program in Vegas, after completing her puppy classes she is a happy, fun loving 1 year old. We are now working on our CGC which is also offered. I highly recommend Impetus Animal Training. More...

I have taken many nosework classes with Veronica. She is very knowledgeable and I think that I have gotten as much out of the instruction as my dog. She talks about the science of scent work, dogs perception of scent. Veronica uses positive reinforcement and verbal praise for both handler and dog. Making these classes as much fun for the dog as the handler. More...

Clicker training has been so beneficial for my dogs! Veronica's Growly Dog class has helped my fearful & reactive pup learn how to feel more confident in the world and her k9 NoseWork course was so much fun for my senior boxer who has some physical restrictions. And Marlene has given me tips for training that I would be lost without. Lots of other fun classes I can't wait to do with my fur babies! More...

I love working with the ImPETus team! Kylie taught me how to use clicker training to effectively communicate with my dog, and Veronica's nose work class helped my insecure border collie gain confidence that I'd never seen in him before. The courses are fun and informative; my pups and I can't wait to learn more from these amazing ladies! More...

I had a young Border Collie in my pack that I did not place in a home due to his guarding growly personality, and fear that he would bite and ultimately end up in a shelter. Kylie came and immediately made friends with Mac using the positive reinforcement clicker method; I immediately realized that there was hope for him and I was sold on this method from that moment on. I ultimately went on to take an online clicker foundation course myself to continue the work that Kylie started with Mac and the rest of my pack. Kylie is always very patient when working with the animals and they learn what she is asking within a short time with the method she uses. The animals are always eager to work with her because she makes it fun for them to learn any new task. More...

Q&As

We love teaching dog parents how to provide enrichment and guidance for their canine companions. We want to see families before behavior problems occur and start puppies in our pre-school program as early as 9 weeks old. We believe it's never too late to get started, however and offer training for newly adopted dogs, adult dogs and dogs with behavior problems
too. It is our mission to help families find and restore harmony in their homes.

We love dogs and people! We were inspired to do more and do better when we ended up fostering and adopting dogs that were challenging and needed us to take the lead.

Our business is committed to the highest standard. Our trainers are graduates of the Karen Pryor Academy and Victoria Stillwell Academy. They have completed their certification and complete hundreds of hours of continuing education annually. Additionally, our lead trainer is a mentor for the Victoria Stillwell Academy.
