Introduction: Dogs are fun, inspiring and useful. When we see the world through our dogs eyes, we can set them up for success. At Mindful Dog Training each dog is treated as an individual, and evaluated in their home environment. This gives me a good idea where we are starting from and likely course of action to proceed productively. Your dogs behavior is influenced by everything in their life. So I take an all inclusive approach to the dog experience. Leadership is very important, after that consider what your dogs needs are and how those fit into your life. Dog stuff is usually fun and interesting, even if it’s not what we normally do. It’s so neat to see their face light up when they love the new game or activity. Every interaction “trains” your dog. Your always shaping the way your dog sees you, and their world. By changing little things, always making things a little better, things are good. If you would like a small behavior adjustment or have a serious issue, I am glad to help. Puppy Training for me is more than “sit, stay, come”. By understanding your dogs breed (common characteristics and activity that runs in the family), age tendencies (puppies change by the month), and who YOUR puppy is, we can set up a routine that fits you and your dog. Gear to achieving the progress you need as your dog grows. A few lessons Before a group puppy class can make that class much more fun and productive. Socialization is important, and a well behaved puppy meets & greets people (and other dogs), in a way that promotes even more socialization. We will cover how to socialize And also how to excuse ourselves from socialization. Your dog is “your dog”, you set the boundaries. Whatever your needs, happy to help, personally, or by connecting you to appropriate other dog professionals. Thanks for being a friend and leader for your dog, Woody FDC cert. @ Mindful Dog Training

Woody is very knowledgeable, punctual and professional! I was feeling like I was confused and was confusing my new rescue with my commands… like I was just a “little off”. Woody helped clear that up on the first visit. Sure enough my posture was not matching my commands. With some micro adjustments, Quincy and I had some breakthroughs. I truly appreciate what Woody has helped us accomplish so quickly. It has helped my newly adopted dog and I bond quicker and grow our connection. I will be using him again and again in the future as I continue to grow my dogs’ training skills!

Woody was extremely responsive, punctual, and professional without being overbearing or unrealistic. He is a down to earth person that knows dogs better than anyone I've met. After just one lesson, we understand our puppy's needs so much better and he understands us just as well. His behavior is much better and he seems to respect us more as mom and dad and playmates. He truly cares about your puppy and family and we will definitely stay in touch and use his expertise again. I couldn't recommend anyone better for helping with any and all things dog.

Details: 0 - 6 months old • Small (16 - 25 lbs) • Private lessons • Puppy training • Leash pulling • Biting • Chewing • Destructive behavior • My home, venue, etc.

Woody was amazing! We had a dog that needed fast and effective training to immediately address some concerns with a 6 year old dog we adopted only 5 days ago. Woody was on-time and quickly built trust with our dog. He was very helpful on the exact things we needed to do to get the dog to listen to us. Our dog loved him as well which was a huge bonus! We would recommend Woody to anyone looking to quickly address dog training and behavioral issues. Overall, I wouldn’t hesitate to hire Woody again for help with dog training!

As a disabled veteran and previous owner of well trained service dogs; Woody, is the “Yoda” of dog training! In one visit, he had our 3 month old Giant Schnauzer (Miles) obeying his/our commands! He did this all without using a leash!!!!!! Woody helped my wife and I become pack leaders and helped Miles understand his role in the pack! Woody is an absolute professional and knows the psychology of dogs extremely well! Additionally, Woody’s prices are fabulous! He is not trying to “hustle” anyone and sign the client up for unneeded training or lengthy contacts! Woody is very kind and extremely positive; he is someone you can trust! Please, call Woody and watch him transform your dog into an amazing member of your pack!!!!!
