Family-friendly dog obedience training using science and kindness to make your pet a calm and responsive companion.
 
Certifications: CDBC
 
Job Title: Head Trainer
 
Training Equipment: Head harnesses, front-clip harnesses and clickers. I never recommend slip (choke) collars, prong collars or electronic (shock) collars.
 
Training Philosophy: Reward behaviors that you like, then use those behaviors for control in tough situations! Sit, down, stay and COME are just the beginning. Exposure to distractions is what makes a Good Dog!

Group Classes - Tuesdays -Good Dogs Out On the Town and Canine Good Citizen through the City of Fort Collins, CO www.fcgov.com/recreator. Email skgintner@gmail.com with questions.
 
I help people of all ages and abilities achieve their dog training goals using dog-friendly training techniques. Whether you want your fearful puppy to spend less time hiding from guests or your energetic young adult dog to ignore dogs on the hiking trail or prairie dogs in the green space I can show you how to use the science of learning in your training. Together we will make your dog happy, relaxed, confident and the companion you have always dreamed of.
