MY SPECIALTIES

In most cases, you will have the option of private coaching (I train you to train your dog) or day training (I train your dog myself.)

Session rates are $120 per hour. Discounts are available on pre-paid packages.

LEASH REACTIVITY

For dogs who pull, growl, lunge, or appear aggressive when passing other dogs on walks.

PUPPY DEVELOPMENT

To create a well socialized new puppy with the goal of a confident, well adjusted adult dog. This practice is critical during the first 8-12 weeks to prevent fearful or aggressive behavior as an adult.

BASIC MANNERS

The bread & butter, with personalized attention: sit, down, stay, coming when called, leave it, walking nicely on leash, and more.

FEAR & AGGRESSION

I would love to help your dog feel safe in the world, and give you peace of mind. It is a myth that aggression must be treated with a heavy hand- this has disastrous results. Dominance based training elicits an aggressive response from dogs, therefore worsening the problem. Learn more:

DESTRUCTIVE DIGGING & CHEWING

Is your dog digging his way to China and munching on your shoes? What is bothersome to us feels very normal to a dog. They are not defective, they just need to be re-programmed.

POTTY TRAINING

Household accidents can be incredibly frustrating. Let me give you peace of mind in knowing that you are on the right track and a fresh, clean house is on the way.

RAMBUNCTIOUS, JUMPY & MOUTHY BEHAVIOR

This is the most common complaint among dog parents, especially in puppies and adolescents. You are not alone and I am here to help.
