Introduction: Please note: I do not work with aggressive dogs who have a bite history or you feel that if the reactions your dogs has could lead to a fight/bite with dogs and people. I’ve been training all breeds and temperaments since 2007 using only positive reinforcement and force free methods. I’ve also help build a force free training community here in HR to better service our area with like minded trainers. My training style doesn’t use any tactics that will scare, harm or intimidate your dogs to perform appropriate behaviors My career has been shaped by the various places I’ve worked; which include private clients, doggy daycares, big box stores, and animal shelters. But my most success comes from private training, one on one in your home and where you go with your dogs. This is how my clients and I truly bond so I ensuring they are getting what they specifically need. I use simple cues to harness dogs’ natural instincts to teach them which behaviors will get them what they want/need. Having me in your home to see what you’re working with will set you up for easier training practices. And what do our dogs want? Our attention, food, toys, comfort, freedom to explore, play, and relax.

Andrea helped us with our 3 month old chocolate lab puppy, and we can’t thank her enough. She makes a targeted individual plan for each pup and uses positive reinforcement techniques. One of the best parts is she not only helps your dog, but she explains to the owners the reasoning for each step and it helps the human learn as well. She’s happy to answer all of the silly questions and it’s apparent just how knowledgeable she is! Honestly don’t know how we would have gotten through the first few weeks of training without her. Don’t waste time on YouTube videos or googling “how to train”. Well worth the time and money, an absolute 10/10!

Andrea is amazing! I have2 Golden’s and a yorkie poo. My yorkie is a non stop barker after 1 lesson and doing my homework her barking is already 90 % better. My Golden’s are calmer with Andreas suggestions about anxiety. Look no further, Andrea is the best trainer !!! I am so pleased with her knowledge about dog behavior. Looking forward to our next lesson . Barbara B

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My pricing is fair but competive. However, customers should choose a trainer based on their needs and the type of work they want to achieve with their pets. Note: pricing varies based on training needs. Please be specific when filling out request forms, so trainers can offer the right quote.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    First we review history and determine goals. This helps me develop an action plan for our training sessions.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I first learned the importance of training when I owned a dog walking business in NYC. Then I adopted a bitey chihuahua and took him to training classes. I fell in love with the process and his transformation was incredible. It taught me much more about dog behavior than I could imagine. I chose to study more about dog training and behavior to help me manage the dogs I cared for and add this skill to my business. I read books by well respected dog trainers while shadowing my chihuahua’s dog trainer for a year to learn hands on. Then I started focusing on the human aspect of it. Not every person has the same learning abilities or goals. So I had to learn to adapt to everyone’s needs. I become part therapist and trainer in that respect! But I love it.
