We are all dealing with different challenges every day.
My mission is to improve daily life for humans and dogs through education.
BEHAVIOR MODIFICATION & COACHING
An initial consultation is required and will take place at your home, ideally with all the family present, this usually takes between 60-90minutes. During the consult we will go over the behavior(s) you want to address and talk about how to manage them, so your dog doesn't keep practicing them while we work on changing them. Practicing unwanted behaviors only makes him better at that behavior.
After the initial consult we will make recommendations for training. Everyone involved will need to be on board before proceeding. It takes commitment, change is hard for people and dogs.
BODY LANGUAGE & BEHAVIOR CLASS
Dogs communicate with us every day, but not using words.
In order to keep everyone safe and avoid a dog bite, it is critically important that we learn to interpret their language and react appropriately.
Understanding what your dog is trying to tell you will help you build a better relationship, which in turn will enhance your training efforts and ensure that you and your dog can enjoy everyday life together.
In this class you will learn how your dog's brain works, gain a much better understanding of his body language and the many subtle signals dogs display, in order to keep your dog from getting to the point where he feels the need to growl, bark and lunge.
Learn how your own body language and movements can help you avoid a bite. and prevent behaviors escalating out of control.
Understand how emotions effect learning and health, constant stress and fear in dogs causes cortisol levels to increase just like in humans and can play havoc with your dog's health and his immune system.
We recommend this webinar prior to any training or behavior modification plan

PUPPIES - PREVENTION IS BETTER & CHEAPER THAN TRYING TO CHANGE BAD HABITS
From the minute you pick up your new puppy around 10 weeks old the clock is ticking, you have until they reach about 16 weeks old to expose them to as many people, places, dogs, sounds, smells, tastes and textures/surfaces as you can possible can, while keeping it fun for them.
This 6 week window will be the foundation of how puppy deals with things in his adult life. Ideally the person who took care of your puppy in the first 10 weeks will also have exposed him to many things and he should have also got plenty of litter mate time, this is where they learn to play nicely & that biting hurts, hence those razor sharp puppy teeth.
Please call us before you get a puppy we are here to help, you wouldn't buy a house without a real estate agent to help you through the process.
Itchy skin, bad breath, behavioral issues, chronic vomiting and diarrhea can all be linked to what your dog eats.
Did you know food can affect behavior?
Dogs are not built to process starch and carbs, which is what most commercial "Dog Food" is made of.
Let's get together and figure out what's best for your dog and your budget, so that he can be happy, healthy and live a long life.

MY DOG NEEDS A RIDE!
Does your dog need his annual check up at the vet or his regular visit to the groomer and you just don't have time?
Maybe you are returning from vacation and won't make it back before the boarding facility closes.
As a trainer and behavior consultant, I am able to read your dog's body language and make these experiences as stress free as possible.
Let's also talk about some desensitization techniques that you can work on to help your pup prepare for his visit to the groomer or vet.

WEDDING TRAINING & CHAPERONE
Do you want your dog in your wedding? Whether you want him to be the ring bearer or you want her to be in all of your photos, I can help.
Many dogs are not comfortable in crowded places or having cameras pointed at them while they sit still for a 20 minute photo session. I can help train them to do what you dream of, while having fun.
I'll also be their chaperone while you enjoy your special day knowing that your dog is right there with you, also enjoying the big day.
