Question and answer

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. Always ask your self "how natural is this training method?" The more unnatural tools are used in training (squirt bottles, clickers, shock collars, etc,.) the more difficult it will become to convince your dog that you understand them. Dogs relate what we do to what they would expect another dog to do, so the more we learn to use the principles of canine communication (simple body language, facial expressions and vocal tone), the more they will learn to trust us. Clear communication is vital for permanent results and a strong relationship. Always ask your self "will this training method actually help me develop a stronger relationship with my dog based on love, trust and respect?"

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. Since a dog's behavior is greatly affected by where he is and who he is with, I offer convenient in-home visits to conduct the training in your dog's natural environment (or in any other place you world prefer). I also use a very unique and proven training method that does not fail when applied correctly. I make my self available to you 24/7 via in-home visits, phone calls, text messages, emails and Skype video chat so that I can fully assist you whenever you need help.

Q. What do you like most about your job?

A. I recently had one of my first clients call me out of the blue and thank me by saying "you know, if it wasn't for you, our dog wouldn't be alive today." I cannot think of a greater privilege than to be able to change lives for a living. I put this passion into every client I work with.
