Training Philosophy: I LOVE working with dogs. Training with positive reinforcement improves your communication with your dog. I train & problem solve issues positively and by having your dog EARN the things he wants.
Locations Served: Bennington, VT, Hoosick, NY. I am based in Bennington County but travel to Mechanicville and the surrounding area often.
I have been training for 10 years. I completed my national certification (CPDT-KA) in March of 2016 and my CCBC (Certified Canine Behavior Consultant) in 2019. I was a Vet Tech before I was a trainer and do ALL my local shelter's temperament testing and behavioral modification so that dogs can be better suited to adopters. My background has allowed me to work through a wide array of training issues and helped many owners reach a better level of communication and happiness with their dogs. I train individual dogs as well as running classes in my own space in the MIll Building in Bennington. I train in your home or out in public depending on what skills you require work on.
