We emphasize positive, reward-based methods to make dog training fun for both dogs and owners.

     Is your dog difficult to walk because it reacts poorly to other dogs, people or children?  If so, I can help.  The whole reason I became a dog trainer is because of my reactive dog.  She was the sweetest dog on earth except for when her space was invaded.  It was embarrassing and I felt like a failure but once we got the help we needed our world changed.  I learned to read her better and manage her personality.  Since then I have helped hundreds of people in the same uncomfortable situation.


Is your adorable pooch reactive?  Below are some common triggers that can cause a dog to react either being skittish/scared or exhibit aggressive behavior such as lunging or growling.  Reactive training is essential to help them become more confident and calm around their triggers.


•  Loud noises


•  Children


•  Food


•  Toy


•  Other dogs


•  Fast movements

Important information on retractable leashes. While I don't allow retractable leash's in my classes and I think that they are a horrible idea, I know that people love them.  Please make sure to read about Retractable Leash Etiquette before using one and know that people and dogs get hurt all the time with them.
