Canine Behavior Consultant/Trainer
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME
It is my mission to educate canine guardians about positive, force free training methods.
I have been working in the field of training for over 14 years. I dedicate many hours to understanding the science behind how dogs learn and thus have adopted force free and rewards based training methods. No averse tools are used during my training sessions and are discouraged completely. I teach these methods to puppy and adult dog guardians in a fun and respectful environment. I offer private training in the home as well as group classes.
SERVICES AND FEES
I come to your home for private sessions. We discuss philosophy and your training goals but the majority of the time spent is working. You will have a clear plan complete with printed homework.
A basic training plan will cover potty training, house and yard safety, basic obedience (sit, down, stay, touch, look, leave it and drop it), settle on a target, loose leash walking, socialization with friendly strangers and dogs and house boundaries. If you have specific training goals, we will cater the training plan around those goals.
I teach group classes currently virtually only using the Zoom platform.
Classes cover dogs of all ages, starting as young as 8 weeks to provide a safe and sterile environment for them to learn valuable social skills.
Maybe you want to certify your dog through the AKC to become a Canine Good Citizen? We've got that covered too!

The course runs for 5 weeks, 5 classes total with pre-recorded sessions by a skilled trainer. Once you've completed a class, you schedule your live, interactive evaluation with the trainer where you can ask questions and see demonstrations of the skills.
