Contact me anytime with a question or to learn more about me! I look forward to showing you how quickly your dog can change, and how quickly your relationship can improve!
Are you looking for communication and teamwork with your dog?
I specialize in rehabilitating behaviors such as aggression, fear, destructive behavior, separation anxiety, hyperactivity, pack dynamics, and control issues. I provide obedience training, puppy raising, in private sessions as well as weekly group class. I am a certified CGC Evaluator and can provide training for passing the test as well. Most clients need only one or very few private sessions to achieve their goals, and any session includes unlimited phone and email consults as well as my training articles. Sessions can be held at owners homes or in specified locations to help us achieve the best success. I tailor my methods specifically to you and your dog(s), work with your entire family, and show force-free methods that work to heal, create, and build a long lasting bond.
I run a very dynamic group class in outdoor locations to teach you and your dog vital social and obedience behaviors. Focus of the class is on communication and teamwork in real world situations. Each group class offers:
--Drop-in format: You can attend as little or as often as you like. I arrive early and stay late each time at no extra charge to help make you as comfortable as possible. This also allows for you and your dog to practice good leadership around a different group each time.
--Proper leashwork: I teach how to have your dog RESPOND to the leash rather than brace against it. In my class, there are NO battles of wills or strength, NO forceful methods, and nothing but communication. The leash is an extremely important tool--a direct line of communication to your dog that you will learn to use to you and your dog(s) ultimate advantage!
--You will learn how to mentally drain your dog(s) energy and leave them tired, relaxed, and happy without draining too much of YOUR energy
--How to communicate with voice tone and my leash methods what you want, and how to KEEP it and advance!
--Confidence building exercises that teach you and your dog how to handle any distraction in public, all while increasing and cementing your dog(s) trust in you.
--A variety of "Communication Commands" that focus on real world applications
--The power of my "Calming Conversation"
--Safe and rewarding social exercises
