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 desired skills. 2. I offer board and train services in my home to install alternate behaviors to things like barking, counter surfing, chewing, leash manners and of course puppy basic training and socialization. 3. For families who would prefer to do the training and simply want some coaching, I am here to assist them too. 4. Behavior consultations and specialized services are available upon request. In addition, I am coleader of the Paradise Ridge Dog Scouts troop #206.
