As a trainer, I strongly believe that by providing our canine friends with clear instructions, incremental achievement milestones and positive reinforcement when they demonstrate the behaviors we desire we can have not only well behaved friends but happy ones too.
All of my services are customized to meet the individual client needs and include:
1. Providing 1 on 1 training in the home
environment where I train "fido" and then
show pet parents how to maintain their
2. I offer board and train services in my
home to install alternate behaviors to

chewing, leash manners and of course puppy
