I’m passionate about teaching your dog the desirable behaviors you dream of, and then showing you how to ask for and get those great behaviors.
Having witnessed the amazing capacity of dogs to learn via positive reinforcement and to happily offer desirable behavior time and time again has made a deep impression on me. Because of what I’ve observed, learned through study, and experienced during application in my own training sessions, I have committed to using reward-based, positive reinforcement methods.
My training is based on the exciting, paradigm shifting knowledge and science now available to us humans that allows us to change our lives with our animals without causing emotional or physical distress. I use no aversive or damaging equipment, nor do I borrow harsh, traditional, old-school training tactics from the past. Be assured that your dog’s emotional and physical well-being is my priority.
You may want to know that both my academic education and hands-on training has been rigorous and extensive, and that I’ve earned multiple credentials, which you can read about on the “Meet your Trainer” page. And more importantly, you may also want to know that my clients most appreciate their dog’s behavior change, and the harmony that results from having a dog who knows what to do and is happy to do it.
