Philosophy

Whether we are addressing specific behavioral issues or are working on basic obedience skills, we will always approach your dog as an individual and will use whatever methods and tools that are appropriate and effective for the human/dog team I am working with. Being present to each dog and meeting them where they are is the key to a high success rate, and positive experience for all.

We are positive trainers who establish clear boundaries. We are you and your dog’s biggest cheerleaders and always operate from a place of respect, kindness, and exceptional patience. We also understand that nature provides consequences and that corrections that are clear, and fair, are necessary to achieve balance with most dogs. The combination and type of praise and correction is uniquely formulated with each individual dog/human team. There is not one “right” way to train a dog, and it is important to be equipped with many different techniques and energy levels to match you and your dog’s temperaments.

We are not only able to communicate fluently with dogs, but also with their people. They say, “Half of dog training is people training!” – and we agree! Our ability to carefully listen to and teach both species is what gives our clients, both two and four-legged, consistent results and an enjoyable, interesting and empowering experience.

We have the ability to mix and match all types of services to perfectly meet your needs and accomplish your desired goals in the way that fits you and your dog the best.
