Helping you succeed with your best friend.

Dog training isn't just about obedience,
it's about building trust.

Do you dream of having a dog that is calm, happy, focused on you and obedient? Perhaps you've heard that you have to be "dominant" or the "pack leader" but you have no idea what that looks like? And maybe you don't feel right about using punishment and aversive methods like choke chains, prong collars and e-collars...  I promise, there is no need to dominate, punish or inflict pain on your dog to earn their love, respect and obedience.

A message to dog parents

Do you want a wonderful relationship with your dog or puppy?  I can help.


Problem behaviors like puppy biting, growling and lunging, not coming when called or destroying the house when you're gone are all challenges I've dealt with and can help resolve. I focus on helping you build the strong bond and relationship with your dog that everyone wants.  With positive reinforcement training I can help you achieve your goals with your dog or puppy while also finding ways to meet their needs and make your life easier. I will give you the tools, education and support you need to succeed with your best friend.
