Be S.M.A.R.T dog training

 
CPDT-KA certified trainer.Private and group classes, behavioral consultations, temperament testing, T-Touch, Reiki practitioner,canine massage practitioner.
 
Certifications:
 
Training Equipment: Buckle collar,clicker, long lines. I use head halters and harnesses in some cases as a transition to the use of a loose leash and buckle collar. My goal is to shoot for off leash reliability.
 
Training Philosophy: See-mark-reward is my basic philosophy. Behaviors rewarded become stronger. Behaviors not rewarded disappear. It is my goal to help people to understand their dogs behaviors to implement change.
 
Locations Served: I can service anywhere in the Denver area. I feel very fortunate to be able to offer services to the dogs in my community. I promote only dog friendly methods utilizing a marker. The goal is to strengthen the dog human relationship.
 
I try to base my training on what the dog and owner need. I periodically reach out to other resources in difficult cases. I operate only on a private training situation at this time. I am experienced in dealing with rehomed dogs and their individual issues. I believe every dog is an individual and needs to be treated in such a manner.
