Thank you for searching the APDT for your dog's training and behavior needs. Services Offered: In-home behavior consultations, behavior modification/rehabilitation and private lessons. Behavior Consultations, Assessments and Behavior Change Programs: Does your dog have a troubling behavior? Behavior problems can be frustrating and often scary, but they don't have to be. Relax, I will help you understand your dog's concerning behavior its underlying cause. This is the first step in developing a sensible behavior change program that is targeted to produce real results using positive, force-free methods. It is rewarding to provide people with a deeper understanding of why dogs do what they do. I support the belief that when both dog and family "speak" the same language, they reach a mutual respect and understanding that reconnects them as a whole. This sets people and their dogs on a path toward success. I am actively involved in the rehabilitation of shelter and rescue dogs and work closely with those communities to help dogs find permanent, loving homes.
