I do this because I not only love dogs but also because I am devoted to helping them. There are no bad dogs!  Just dogs who are at a loss how to interact with humans and they are as frustrated as you are. I know they want to be a valued member of your pack and they sometimes need help navigating the stresses of modern day living.

- Whether you have a purebred who was gently raised by the hands of a good breeder and needs some correcting or a rescue who has been tormented out of its natural state of well being, I can help.

- Calm, consistent, patient and always kind - that is the system I have found to work best with any dog who has an issue.  Having a pet should enrich your life and theirs.  If you invest the time in training, you will guarantee your dog their right to be a joyful and dedicated companion to you and your family.

- About the training - Dogs are individuals. Each require a unique training approach. I make an assessment before I do any training. This usually takes place at the home.

- Dogs can run for hours! Chase a ball a thousand times. But behavior training exhausts them quickly. They get tired, lose focus and nothing is learned.  So every minute of a training session counts.  I also make it fun for them to give them a break and a reward.  GOOD DOG! means so much to them.  When trained properly they learn quickly.  It is true - they want to please you. Remember you are as much a part of the dog’s training as I am.

Dogs are a passion for me. Enjoying their amazing company. Teaching them, coaching them, training them to be good upstanding canine citizens.  I look forward to every session and nothing makes me happier than when I run into (more like they run into me) one of my former pupils.

My methods are simple. Be patient. Understand. Make it fun. Don’t forget who’s the dog and who’s the human. Teaching a dog how to be a great companion and family friend is a mission for me.  My greatest reward is turning the tide on a  “situation” where the dog had to go. I have never found that to be the case.  

Clearing up miscommunication between pets and their owners is usually pretty simple. The first step is figuring out what the real problem is. A bad dog? No such thing. A dominant dog. A scared dog. A confused dog. Those are real and require and warrant looking into.
