Helping You Help Your Pet

Building Relationships Through Positive Training

The relationship between a dog and their person is a unique connection.  I believe both dogs and their people learn more proficiently and retain more knowledge when training is a positive experience.  By using scientifically proven positive techniques, I am able to help dogs and humans absorb information in a relaxed state of mind.  Learning in this manner allows for beautiful and important bonding and the dog/human relationship is able to flourish and thrive.  As a result, solutions are discovered and trust is established.  My clients feel more connected to their dogs and are pleased with the results of the behavior modification and enrichment plan.
