The focus of my business is to create an optimal environment in which people can learn to train their dogs. I have a beautiful training facility which is fully matted for your dog’s comfort and traction. It is warm in winter and cool in summer.
I work with many different people and dogs. Some are raising a puppy, others may have serious behavioral problems with their dog, like aggression. Changing dog behavior is complex and takes work. Is it worth it? Absolutely.
Every person is different and every dog is different. Not everyone learns in the same way. I tailor your lessons to you and your dog. I want you and your dog to feel comfortable.
Whether you train with me privately or in a group class, my goal is the same, to create a safe and quiet environment in which you can learn. I want you to be successful.

Puppy Prep. Get ready!
Over time we tend to forget how demanding a new puppy is. We remember the good stuff!
If you are thinking about a puppy or are waiting for your puppy then having a bit of a refresher consult is a great idea.
Puppy Head Start
It is just amazing what we can do with young puppies using clicker training. I generally advise clients to let the puppy settle in for a week or ten days and then we can get started. The earlier you start the better.
One session a week, 4 weeks, $410.00
Dog Trainer Two, Group Class
For those of you who have completed Dog Trainer One in private training, I recommend that you move into Dog Trainer Two and continue training in a small group. This class picks up where Dog Trainer One left off. You have been practicing your mechanics for four weeks. Now, let’s make those cues stronger and add the light distraction of a few other dogs in the room.

The Joy of Heeling.
Foundations for dynamic Heel Work.
Heeling is the most difficult and the most beautiful (in my opinion) of all the Obedience Exercises. At best, it is an effortless partnership between dog and handler performed with joy and power, one moving with the other in perfect unison.
But how do you get this action in an exercise that is not self-reinforcing to the dog in any way?
Thursdays, 7:30-8:30, six weeks, $185.00
