Introduction: I am a Master Trainer, in Canine Behavior Modification. I am certified with the International Boarding & Pet Services Association. I have successfully completed over 60 dogs doing “in boarding training” I’m experienced training all breeds, all sizes, all ages and all sorts of different problems. Aggression with people, aggression with dogs, socialization, fear/anxiety, potty training, puppy training, and your 5 basic commands. Sit, Down, Come, Heel, Stay. I also do agility training, teaching how to swim, pulling on bikes, roller blades, skateboards or any dog pulling device. Also any small issues like walking on a leash, off leash training, proper house behaviors such as greeting guests, digging, getting into the trash, barking, getting on furniture, chewing, or any other unwanted behaviors. I can fix them all, but not by myself. I like to have the household to be a part of the change in your dog to better improve their progress. Often many of your dog’s problems may have to do with small changes in the household. The most important aspect of our program is alphamanship. Dogs by nature are den dwelling pack animals and instinctively seek hierarchy in their pack. We will make it possible to become the alpha in your dog’s life. It is very necessary that we fulfill the role as the alpha as quickly as we can, otherwise the dog will try to take the role simply out of their innate pack animal tendencies. In our program we will give you the necessary tools to be your dog’s alpha, to build a foundation to your dog, bettering the chances of a happier trained canine. My training theory is a combination of “Positive reinforcement” and “Avoidance conditioning”. Some trainers are the old school “pound and jerk” to where your dog is traumatized and obeys out of fear. And some schools are all positive, teaching that it is always wrong to ever correct your dog. Which will unfortunately leave very frustrated dog owners. My Training Theory will fall into the middle of the training spectrum, like anything in life, the balanced perspective is the most effective and fastest. The best choice will be to use positive, motivational methods. However, we will also be dealing with dogs that have years of established behaviors. Therefore, we may also combine positive reinforcement with a correction to change the dog’s behavior. We offer different types of programs, including in home visits with the dog and the family. I need to get an idea of the dog’s lifestyle to better improve any wanted or unwanted behaviors. We will build a foundation for your dog and set up a 1-6 session home visit plan giving your dog all the training and tools for you and your family to have the dog you never knew you could have.
