As a Certified Professional Dog Trainer, I bring positive science-based training methods, customized to the specific needs of you and your dog, right to your front door. From Puppy Start, all levels of obedience, behavior modification, AKC Family Dog Program titles including the Canine Good Citizen, therapy dog training, as well as training for emotional support animals, and assistance animals.
In addition to my CPDT-KA, I am also an instructor and evaluator for the AKC and APDT programs. I am a Fear Free Certified Professional Trainer and have successfully completed the American Red Cross Cat and Dog First Aid course.
Two training platforms allow me to achieve the wanted goals for your dog.
Coaching is one training session a week. During this session, I will coach you on how to obtain the skills you want to achieve. You will have homework assignments consisting of short daily training sessions with your dog until your next training session with me. Coaching is perfect for those who are interested in learning the science behind dog training.
An alternative platform is Day Training. Day Training consists of 3-4 training sessions a week, conducted by me, in your home while you work. Day Training is perfect for busy families who may not have the time to spend on daily homework assignments. At the end of the week, we will have a transfer session where you will be coached on your dogs newly learned skills.
