Training Equipment: Whatever motivates the dog such as food, toys/play, life rewards. Head-halters, muzzles - when needed for the safety, calming cap, TTouch wraps, groundwork equipment and Clicker.
Training Philosophy: My training is based on the behavioral sciences. I strive to give recommendations that are doable and that my client's understand. Empathy for both the person and the dog are hallmarks of my approach to training and working with people.
