You love your dog. It may be young, old, small, large, purebred, or a “Heinz 57.” What counts is that you have a relationship, and you want it to be the best it can be.

I can help. Since 2001, I have applied my unique program of dog training to assist owners of puppies, mature pets, rescues and adoptees. Before training begins, I come to your home, evaluate your dog in its own environment, and then design an individualized program based on your lifestyle and your dog’s unique needs.

Building upon a foundation that respects the canine’s magnificent inate intelligence and desire for an Alpha leader, I combine positive training techniques, the latest understanding of animal behavior, and my experience as an owner and breeder, to create a program that trains both the dog and the owner(s).

The result: Well adjusted animals AND humans. Barks and smiles all around.

Thank you for visiting our site. Please browse our pages to learn more about our services, and let us know how we can help you enrich and enjoy the bond that has been shared by humankind and dog for more than 14,000 years.

Our Clients Say it Best

Grace & Henry

I can’t believe how much your training has improved my life. I get to go on walks through the neighborhood, I don’t waste so much time barking like a MadMan at all those silly little dogs. I’m learning to be in very good control when I see another dog while I am out walking and I come when I am called.
