How I Train
Training With Me
My Goals For You
More joy, less stress! I want this for all of my clients and their dogs.
To give you the skills and confidence you need to reach your goals.
To bring out the best in your dog. Every dog is different, and has different potential. I want to help you find the best in your unique pup!
Benefits of In-Home Training
It's convenient! You don't have to worry about packing up your pet (or kids!) and getting somewhere, I come right to you.
Your dog is more successful. Being at home eliminates the challenges of trying to learn in a new place. Once your dog has learned a behavior well inside, we can add distractions and go to new environments.
I want the best for my clients and their pets! That's why I practice:
The use of positive reinforcement as my first choice of motivation.
The use of science-based methods.
Avoidance of painful or physical punishment. This can cause many behaviors to get worse. (See the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior's Position Statement on Punishment )
Skilled positive training builds your relationship with your dog!
