PRIVATE TRAINING IS BEST FOR:

  • Adopting a new dog or puppy.

  • Addressing nuisance behaviors (barking, begging, jumping on guests, pulling on leash).

  • Addressing behavioral issues (leash aggression, resource guarding, fearful or anxious behavior, biting).

  • Teaching specific skills (coming when called, off-leash reliability, advanced obedience).

  • Owners with irregular schedules.

  • Owners who like to be very involved in the training process.

WHAT TYPE OF DOGS DO YOU MOST ENJOY WORKING WITH?
I tend to have the most fun training primitive type and "stubborn"/aloof dogs. I enjoy a challenge, and it's no secret that I have a penchant for hounds and bullies.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SKILL TO TEACH?
It is a toss-up between self control and cooperation for care such as vet or grooming procedures. They both make a world of difference for dog and owner.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE TRAINING TOOL?
Brainpower! I love problem solving to find what will be the most meaningful consequence for the individual dog that I am working with. 
IN JUST 3 SENTENCES - YOUR FAVORITE BEHAVIOR CASE OUTCOME.
A dog that went from severe human aggression to rolling in the grass soliciting belly-rubs. This dog taught me a lot about the many ways that fear and insecurity can present.  The root of behavior is not always as it seems!
WHAT DO YOU VALUE MOST IN YOUR
RELATIONSHIP WITH DOGS?
Freedom, cooperation, companionship, and trust. All coming from both ends of the leash.
WHAT TYPE OF DOGS DO YOU MOST ENJOY WORKING WITH?
I love dogs that are great problem solvers - too smart for their own good. Dogs that will keep me on my toes lest they decide to solve a problem I didn't even know we had. Shepherds, Terriers and other working breeds are my favorite. 
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SKILL TO TEACH?
I enjoy teaching impulse control and awareness to dogs as well as practical skills they need to behave appropriately in public. 
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE TRAINING TOOL?
Ditto! Using my brain and observational skills to carve out the desired behavior from a dog I'm working with is my favorite "tool." 
IN JUST 3 SENTENCES - YOUR FAVORITE BEHAVIOR CASE OUTCOME.
Two dogs in the Reactive Dog class I teach that started off stressed around unknown dogs, seeing each other for the first time and not barking, lunging, or growling. They stayed attentive to their owners and were playful and relaxed for the entire length of class.
WHAT DO YOU VALUE MOST IN YOUR
RELATIONSHIP WITH DOGS?
Communication. The fact that we can learn to communicate with a non-verbal species to accomplish incredibly complex goals is amazing!
