Bio: 

Like most dog trainers, I am a lifelong pet owner and pet lover. However, it wasn't until 2007, when I began rescuing and fostering dogs, that I became obsessed with learning everything I could about how to reach the dogs, rehabilitate them, understand how they think, and train them in basic behaviors to make them more adoptable.

I read everything I could get my hands on and studied every protocol (Cesar Millan, Sit Means Sit, Aussie Way, and more), but each of these methods uses some degree of punishment, force, or intimidation. I knew that this was not what these frightened little dogs (or any dog for that matter) needed. When I read Reaching the Animal Mind by Karen Pryor, I knew I had found what I was looking for—an effective and positive method of training based on proven scientific principles.

I am certified in Pet First-Aid and CPR. I am also a member of the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants, The Pet Professional Guild, the Association of Pet Dog Trainers, and an Instructor for APDT's C.L.A.S.S. (Canine Life and Social Skills) Program.

Services Offered: 

Our training programs don't blame the dog for problem behaviors; we focus on both ends of the leash. We teach dog owners how to understand and work with their dogs. The goal is to teach good manners and resolve training challenges and behavior problems, while creating a cooperative relationship that builds the bond between dog and owner.

We offer morning, afternoon, and evening private sessions and small group classes. Our primary focus is on foundation behaviors and basic manners (from puppies to seniors), solving and preventing common behavior problems, and customizing a training program that fits your dog, your expectations, and your lifestyle. We specialize in helping shy/timid dogs gain confidence and overcome their fears.

When you can't be home for your furry friends, because of work, vacation, or other obligations, we can help ensure that they are taken care of with the same love and attention you give them. Our concierge pet services include transportation to vet or groomer, walks, playtime, doggy daycare with optional training sessions, pet grocery pick-up and delivery, and more! Need something else? Just ask!
