Is Your Dog Running Your Life?

Do you want your time and sanity back? Do you struggle with getting your dog to listen to you? Have you tried everything and nothing seems to work?

This can be a very frustrating place to find yourself. Failed attempts at change in the home quickly become tiresome, and many times dog owners find themselves ready to give up and admit defeat. You may feel stuck in your current relationship with your dog and have no idea how to have a well-behaved companion and friend.

You love your dog and you deserve to find balance and happiness with them. We can help.

Why I offer Private, In-Home Training

I come to you at your convenience in your home, where you are experiencing most of your dog’s behavior issues. Seeing you and your pet interact in your home allows me to offer real time solutions and a tailored training approach. Additionally, dogs learn more quickly and have less stress and fewer distractions in their own home and neighborhood environment.

After solving any problems you may be experiencing in the home, we can advance to other behavioral problems outside and in other environments you and your dog share.

I will work closely with you to discuss your goals and customize a training program to fit you and your dog’s individual needs. I strive provide a complete and balanced approach to training my clients. I will teach you to take the lead with plenty of positive reinforcement and effective corrections to unwanted behavior.

I offer the following training options:

Puppy Training

Having a new puppy in the home can be very exciting! However, new pet parents can also quickly find themselves overwhelmed with all of the changes that come with a new dog in the household. Since so many challenges arise during early puppyhood, this is a great time to begin your training with an experienced professional. Working together, we can be sure to tackle ANY struggles that arise while your pup adjusts to their new home. We will discourage behaviors such as potting accidents, nipping, jumping, destructive behavior, and much more from developing in your new puppy. Puppies have a lot of learning to do in their early months, navigating their new environment and learning what is expected of them. As much as you love and adore your new puppy, it is normal to feel overwhelmed and unsure where to begin with training your new best friend. Let me help you lay a great foundation so you can enjoy your new little friend for many years to come.
