I am certified and specialize in dog behavior consulting, a unique field that goes deep into understanding and changing complex behavioral issues.

As a behavior consultant, my goal is to find the root causes of your dog's behavior issues, whether it's fear, anxiety, aggression, phobias, or other issues. I create personalized solutions that address these problems comprehensively, taking into account your dog's overall well-being, medical history, mental health, and environment. This leads to a happier, healthier, and more harmonious relationship between you and your beloved companion.

With over 17 years of experience, I bring a personalized and empathetic approach to solving behavior problems, helping dogs achieve mental balance and happiness using humane, force free scientific behavior modification.
