We believe that there are thousands of different characters in the vast canine world and we are tailoring toward every different personality with different methods and ideas. Experience and Advancement are the cornerstones of our programs. We specialize in working breeds with independent and high energy traits and love challenges. We also can help you before you get your puppy to decide who is best for your lifestyle and prepare your home and you for puppyhood. We assist you in choosing "the right" puppy based on personality. Our goal is - to teach you - HOW to bring out THE BEST in your furry family member and to give you an inside into the "WHYs" of behavior and the "HOW's" of training. For over 20 years I have met dogs of all different breeds in the veterinary field as a technician myself and I am well aware that they all have breed specific traits, individual personalities, needs and problems. My experience comes from working with dogs as a Veterinary Technician and continuously training dogs and their humans since 2001. I am taking every possibility to further educate myself in the field of dog training and behavior to always give you the best solutions for your situation. I am bilingual and can train your dog in German. I am also knowledgeable in assisting with grooming and handling topics and can give you wellness advice on nutrition. I am certified by the American Red Cross in "Dog and Cat First Aid". Please visit our website and Facebook page to see more about our philosophy. Take your first step now and contact me to achieve your goal of a BALANCED COMPANIONSHIP with the K9 in your life. Birgit Scholz Owner and Operator of Balanced Companions Licensed and Insured
