I’m not your standard garden variety dog trainer.  While I offer traditional training using reward-based methods (no shock/prong collars here!), my background and experience allows me to provide help in multiple areas. If anything sounds interesting to you, contact me to discuss, no charge, no pressure, and no commitment!

Future Adopters

Many well-intentioned people adopt dogs that turn out to be poor fits for their homes and lifestyle. They often then pour hundreds of dollars into training trying to “fit a square peg into a round hole”. Sometimes they have to return the dog to the shelter – a discouraging and heartbreaking experience. I can help you make sure this does not happen to you. Contact me to discuss or schedule a free 15 minute virtual introduction.
