Are you struggling with aggressive, anxious, fearful,
or out-of-control dog behavior that training alone cannot solve?

I teach you why the behavior is happening and make specific recommendations on how to make a positive changes.

  • Specialized, compassionate methods using positive reinforcement & reward-based applied behavior modification, focus on creating a respectful, positive relationship between you and your dog(s) with the goal of improving your dog's behavior & mental health.  

  • I help you to understand how a dog naturally thinks, learns, and communicates.

  • Never use force, pain, or fear-based methods.

  • Once the root of the behavior issue is established, positive behavior change is the natural next step.

  • Proven methods work with any issue, any breed.

  • You and your dog(s) get one-on-one attention, and an individualized plan to suit your family and set everyone up for success, through behavior therapy, management tools, canine communication, and behavior prevention.
