I believe the foundation of all training is in the relationship you build with your dog, training should be fun! My goal is to pass along skills to owners so they understand the “how” and the “why” of training. Well trained dogs who are polite citizens are dogs who get to enjoy a world that is that much bigger as we include them in our various daily activities. I encourage all dog owners to offer their dog the education they deserve about how to live in our world, and to build a stronger relationship together through training. My training program utilizes the most up to date and scientifically based training methods and tools using a positive reinforcement/force free training approach. Training is a journey, not a destination, and I can’t wait to be a part of yours!
