    About this pro

    Every dog is treated as an individual. Just like people, different dogs learn with different styles. I am comfortable with all of the positive training methods and and will give you the opportunity to learn new ways to communicate with your dog and learn how your dog is communicating with you. Dog training also involves people learning new ways of looking/seeing and some simple physical skills. I am an expert at training people. Helping people solve problems with their dogs so both the dog and the owner can win. Helping people learn that a well trained dog is a happy dog because he knows what to do, when and where to do it and that gives a dog a great feeling of security.

      Q & A

      • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
        Not complicated just unusual. My initial quote is for two sessions because I can't teach it all and you can't learn it all in one session. It's also too much for the dog. Follow up sessions are negotiated, factoring in time, frequency, distance ....
      • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
        I come to your home and begin with introducing myself to the dog and beginning the process of calming the dog down. Once the dog is a bit calmer I begin teaching by just "clicking and rewarding"any calm behavior so the dog can learn to take.a treat from my hand. Once the dog takes a treat progress begins!
      • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
        I stay active through involvement with the American Kennel Club, "Canine Good Citizen" program. This past year I coordinated The Randolph Dog Day event with vendors from around the state and conducted the Evaluations for CGC certification. I can not do a CGC evaluation on a dog that I have helped train. I will help you set up with another evaluator. I am a professional member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers, the publication "Chronicle of the Dog" contains frequent articles by the leaders in the field of dog training and canine behavior. There was an article in the Jan/Feb 2012 issue about me as the organizer of the new Massachusetts Canine Professional Club.
