Locations Served: San Luis Obispo County, CA
I train with the least amount of words, relying on body motion, hand signals, facial expressions instead. Verbal cues are added after the dog has learned a behavior. I work mostly one-on-one, and most of my clients have aggression issues. I want to to help these animals to feel more comfortable in their environment. It is not the way they would choose to live given another option. My goal is to give them that option.
