I offer in-home private lessons to help bridge the communication barrier between human and canine.
I am a balanced trainer that uses a combination of positive reinforcement and corrections. This training method helps the dog learn that doing the right things provides him with the opportunity for a great reward but not doing the right thing is grounds for a correction. Just like parenting, you have to follow through on the things asked of your children in order to achieve a consistent behavior.
Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced classes are offered to prepare the pet parent for the Canine Good Citizen test. I can also help you sort out problem behaviors such as aggression, separation anxiety and resource guarding. For fun, I teach beginning nose-work classes and clicker trick classes!
