Introduction: I am certified Dog Trainer, I graduated from Animal Behavior College in November on 2016. I use a positive based training method. I do not use Negative reinforcement in my training or use intimidation. I also graduated from the University of Nevada with a BS in Elementary Education. I use my knowledge from both to create my lessons plans for my courses and work hard to keep things moving in a forward direction. I also put in some problem solving information in my lessons to help with some normal problems people have with their dogs. I use a Balanced training as my training method, and my schooling thorough Animal Behavior College is a positive motivation based training. I have a love of animals and have been around them my whole life. I chose to be a Dog Trainer because I have always wanted to help people and animals. This way I can help both. I am an Dog Lover first and a Dog trainer second. I am here to help with your relationship with your Dog. I enjoy seeing the difference training can make on a dog, and the difference it makes with the relationship between the owner and dog. Bringing my love of Animals to you!

Pet Sitting

Took very good care of our dogs. Sent us some pictures while we were on vacation. We really appreciated the pictures. She contacted us on the day we were due home to make sure we got back safe. All and all we had a great experience and will use her again.

Dog Training

Desiree was very knowledgeable and did in one 1 hour season what we were unable to do in a week. Our dog was afraid to go into our yard so impossible to potty train. She gave us the tools to get our dog used to the yard and is now pretty much potty trained in 1 week. I have never been able to potty train a dog this fast. Thank you Desiree you were a life saver.

Desiree has trained US how to be consistent and positive when communicating with our dog. I’ve looked to many trainers and she is the ONLY one that I found was positive with every situation. We love, love, love her expertise! She truly loves all dogs and their companions.

Dog Training

Awesome work that I'm all around very happy with. My dog was very stubborn in my mind, but after going through training she knows so many more commands I never thought she would!

Desiree has been so fun to work with, and my dog loves her training days. She is so excited to practice her new lessons every week, and I really see a difference in obedience, and affection towards me. Thanks Desiree!
