I can help you Think Like A Dog for a better life and more fun with your dog.
Training begins with relaxation breathing and a leash connection to your dog. This allows you to build confidence together, through training exercises, play and living together every day. Whether it's gun dog training, walking on a leash without pulling, or safely greeting visitors at the door, confidence is the platform we jump off together.
I will help you to identify and define your dog house rules and boundaries. To make enforcement easier, we focus on teaching your dog the acceptable alternatives to their rule-breaking behaviors. Soon they will have a whole new bag of tricks to get your attention, and you will have effective rewards that celebrate your dog's unique personality and needs.
Physical domination, harsh reprimand and intimidation are not necessary and do not contribute to mutual trust and respect between us and them, and that is necessary for a good life together. To think like a dog, you don't have to be the same as anyone else; you just have to consistently be yourself. I encourage family members to participate, give feedback and ask questions as we work together.
Please contact me to discuss your specific needs and answer your questions. Thank you!
