Hey there, I’m Kelsey!
With over 15 years experience in working with people and handling dogs, I have learned that the key to successful dog training is in working with the owners in a way that makes sense to them and where they feel comfortable to take my methods and use them without my presence. I have come to realize that nearly every dog behavior problem can be solved with the proper education and application of balanced reinforcement methods so long as there is unwavering commitment from the dog owners.
I am an ABC Certified Dog Trainer and Mentor Trainer, and I specialize in my field in working with aggressive dogs and dogs displaying destructive behaviors to varying degrees, and in training their owners to implement strategies to rehabilitate these behaviors completely. There is also a huge focus on owners of puppies who need the proper structures to avoid behavior problems altogether.
Each session is an hour and a half long, after our in person thirty minute consultation. These private training sessions are offered to anyone inquiring about general dog ownership education, basic household structures, raising puppies for success, or dog behavior problems that I believe can be solved with your application of my methods.
Some of the most unwanted behaviors found in dogs are aggression, fear, anxiety, possession, unpredictable behaviors, high energy or destructive patterns. Dogs displaying these behaviors have a much higher chance of ending up at a shelter, being passed from home to home, or even causing damage to other dogs, people, households and other animals.
Regardless of the behavior issue requiring private sessions, I require all family members who live with the dog to be present at each session.
My goal is to help you find the root of the problem and together come up with a training plan to solve the problem. I aim to coach you on handling your dog with an empowered attitude and the least amount of frustration possible.
