Positive methods

I use positive methods to raise and train well-adjusted pets who love to learn.

Individual needs

I identify the needs of each individual dog to keep their environment happy, safe and stress-free.

Great relationship

I believe a great dog-human relationship is based on mutual trust, clear communication and the enjoyment of one another's company, whether you're on the agility field, on the trails or on the sofa.

You get training that is:

  • Effective and easy to understand
  • Concise, with a beginning, middle, and end
  • Designed to leave you and your dog with the skills to further your training and continue to improve your relationship

Understand why positive training works

I train dogs, and show my students how to train dogs, so that the animal is set up to succeed. This shortens the training time and heightens the experience for both trainer and animal. These four training characteristics govern what and how we train.
