What to expect

Need help determining the best training solution for you and your dog? Schedule a 30 minute phone or virtual consultation to identify training goals and length of the program (cost $45).

I train using only positive, science-based approaches using the latest modern research. This means that we will use things your dog enjoys (treats, toys, and games) to modify your dog's behavior. Stressful or painful corrections are not included in my training strategies.
