Peaceful Paws Puppy and Dog Training
2018 Top Pro
About this pro
Not only do I train a family's puppy or dog for obedience, behavior issues, and CGC certification, I also work with Veterans to train their service dogs for obedience/directional/task training, CGC, and public access training. My educational background is in special education, so I have experience working with people who have special needs with brain injury, spinal cord injury, stroke, autism, ADHD, PTSD, and other cognitive and physical disabilities. I love my job because not only do I have the opportunity to meet and help a lot of great people, I especially get to meet and help some amazing dogs. I love seeing the transformation that happens and the bond that is formed between pack leader and their furry companion; leading their dog from chaos to calm.

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?We will set up an initial consultation to meet and talk about your puppy/dog; what your individual needs are, how I do training, and rates for training sessions. The basic training program includes obedience, manners, behavior modification, leash walking, potty training, pack walking, and how to establish rules and boundaries in your home. I will also meet your puppy/dog(s) and do an evaluation for temperament and motivation for learning. This consultation is at your home and takes two hours. Training sessions can be at your home or at my training site, one day a week, for one hour. It takes approximately 8 sessions to complete the obedience training program. Service dog, therapy dog, and emotional support dog training includes the above program; as well as, community training, GGC training, public access training, and task training (if applicable). Perception modification training is also a separate training program.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am continually reading books about dogs and dog training. I work with other trainers and attend several behavior modification and dog training workshops throughout the year. I also do volunteer work, working with Veterans with disabilities and teaching them to train their own service dogs.
