I have been training dogs professionally for 23 years.    I am grateful to have worked with a world renowned service dog organization that placed strong value on humane, positive training techniques.  I have been trained in traditional dog training techniques but I have also been thoroughly trained in use of operant conditioning training, specifically positive reinforcement training using food reward and ‘marker’ training using a clicker.  It is so exciting to watch a dog grow and develop through positive training methods.  Dogs are far more willing to work with us when we work with them, and don’t FORCE them to submit to our will. 

 

I am committed to learning about each dog’s personality and design a training program catered to the dog’s particular temperament qualities, as well as the dog owner’s needs.  I can provide the following dog training basics:

Sit

Stay

Down

Recall (Come)

Crate training

Housebreaking

Relaxed walking on leash

Puppy socializing

Crate Training

Good House behavior training

Proper behavior around other dogs

Canine Good Citizen certificate training and testing

 

I am dedicated to working with pet dogs and their owners.  I am sorry I do not specialize in competitive obedience or other canine competition sports such as Agility or Freestyle. 

 

All dogs thrive with structure and clear, consistent expectations of behavior.  Obedience training is an essential element in developing your dog into a loving, well behaved member of your family.
