Your dog is a big part of your life and you do everything you can to make it a great life.

BUT, your dog can still make you frustrated, aggravated, worried or even scared.  

          1. Does your dog need help with basic life skills and being better mannered?

          2. Is your dog stubborn, 'dominant', behaves "out of spite", barks incessantly?

          3. Does your dog cling to you, has a meltdown when left alone, is destructive?

          4. Does your dog bark, growl, lunge, snarl, or snap at people or dogs?

          5. Does your dog guard his food, chewies, toys, furniture or a family member?

          6. Has your dog bitten someone or another animal?

​1 & 2 are a lot of fun to teach and change;  

Fearful, Reactive & Aggressive dogs (3-6)

are much more challenging but those are MY SPECIALTIES.

I'm here to help and here's how we'll do it:


TRUST means that your dog will feel safe, that his brain will able to learn, retain what's learned and even when your dog is nervous or scared, your dog will know that you'll keep him safe.


You'll be your dog's TEACHer and I'll show you how to do that using force free, fear free, pain free, science based, trust and bond building methods and protocols. 


With learning comes Change and that means your dog's life is more fun, less scary, very rewarding, awesome and safe. 


Now you have a dog that is happier, more confident and more trusting and life for you both is AWESOME- ENJOY!!

Build TRUST, TEACH Skills,

CHANGE Behavior, ENJOY the Partnership ​​
