No matter the problem, I am here to help. From potty training to growling at the mailman, puppy manners to leash aggression, I am well equipped to support you.
You can rest easy that you do not have a "bad dog!" Everything that dogs do, that humans prefer they didn't, feel very normal to a dog. Chewing is the canine Netflix binge.
I train using positive reinforcement that has decades of science to back it up. My technique is simple: give the dog good things for behavior you like, and take away good things for behavior you don't like. It works like a charm.
When you learn how to control the things your dog wants (treats, toys, attention) through training, you gain better control over your dog's behavior.
Best of all, when you train with things your dog loves, it comes with an amazing side effect: Your dog will love training! That's a win-win for everybody.
You didn't get a dog to make life harder. I make this process simple, enjoyable, and effective. I am here to support you every step of the way.
My goal is for you to come away with:
I work with a small group of clients at a time. This is to ensure you receive all the personalized attention necessary for the best possible outcome. All sessions include clear written instruction, and phone and e-mail support in between appointments. Follow up support is provided at the conclusion of training to ensure your continued success.
Initial Private Consult, 1.5 hrs $175
Follow-up Sessions, 1 hr $125
During your first in-home visit, I will do a behavior evaluation to allow me to design a customized plan to suit you and your dog's needs. You will learn about your dog's behavior and have all of your questions answered. We will implement effective management strategies and begin training.
I will provide an estimate for how many sessions will be needed, and we will schedule them together.
Follow-up sessions will involve either me training your dog on my own, or guiding you through the process. Many owners prefer a blend of both.
