I am a CPDT-KA certified dog trainer through the Council of Certified Pet Dog Trainers and a professional member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers. As a member of the Victoria Stilwell Positively Dog Training team I am dedicated to helping my clients learn the most modern, effective and purely positive reinforcement dog training techniques available.
I offer dog training in group classes and through private consultation. My ultimate goal is to enhance the human/canine understanding and bond and help you to create a true working partnership with your dog. I am the coach and the facilitator. You are the one who will build your relationship with your dog.
All of my dog training uses humane, gentle and positive techniques to shape behavior. My training is based in sound, established practices using common sense management, the principles of behavioral science, the power of positive reinforcement.
I use flat buckle collars and solid leads (no retractable).
I do NOT use shock collars, choke collars, prong collars or other “training” collars.
I also do NOT use any sort of dominance based training.
