DOG & PUPPY  TRAINING

All breeds and ages are welcome!

This page is specifically for basic and advanced puppy & dog training (see whats included below).

If you are experiencing very specific behavioral issues such as leash reactivity, aggression, fear based behaviors etc..

I offer private in-home training sessions and we will also meet at specific locations depending on what we're working on. Client will be expected to commit to daily practice of the tools/techniques learned so that each week, we can progress to the next level. Once your dog has mastered his/her new skills, maintaining these skills will need to be refreshed regularly. 

 

 Dog training takes time, patience, repetition and consistency. 

 

Personally, I believe dog training should be FUN and EXCITING for both you and your furry friend! The more we can show up with enthusiasm and playfulness, the more eager and engaged our canine companions will be to learn new tricks, and the quicker they will internalize what's being taught. So make it a game! They will be happy to play and it will only deepen and strengthen your bond. 

Please note: I do not participate in, or encourage methods, that involve negative reinforcement, yelling, punishment, dominance or "Alpha Theory", control or fear/intimidation tactics. This also includes the use of prong collars, shock collars, choke collars, citronella collars, muzzles, head harnesses, spray bottles, can shakers etc.. These methods are not necessary or effective as the animal is not actually learning anything other than to be afraid of you. It will create a fearful, stressed, confused and unhappy dog, which will then result in behavioral issues down the road (aggression is common), as well as a damaged relationship between the two of you.
