I offer the following services:
Private in-home training: I will come to your home and work 1:1 with you and your dog.
Group classes: Classes are currently forming at Tuxedo’s K9 in Irondequoit, and at Brighton Rec Center.
Semi-private lessons: If you have a friend, neighbor or relative that is also interested, I can work with a small group in a mutually convenient location, a home/yard/garage, park or nearby facility.
Sit & Train: I will provide training and care to your dog at your home while you are away, including walking, brushing up on obedience skills, feeding and companionship to prevent loneliness while you are away.
Dog Massage: I will provide a relaxing/calming and rejuvenating massage to your dog, forming a bond and mental state that facilitates training and is a natural reward for their hard work.
Day Training: I will come to your home or doggy daycare and personally train your dog for you and periodically meet with you to demonstrate your dog’s progress and how to utilize their new skills.
