I provide ONLY positive reinforcement dog behavior training in the Denver metro area. I crossed over from a traditional choke-chain training approach to positive reinforcement training a decade ago and have never looked back. I fully believe in the superiority of the positive approach having seen it work wonders on dogs of all ages and temperaments. My clients trust me because I never ask them to do anything to their dogs that makes them feel guilty or ashamed. To the contrary, we have a fantastic time in my group dog training classes, and my clients are always amazed at how quickly their dogs learn with the clicker and the treats. The dogs love coming to class every week. I also do in-home private training for those clients whose dogs are not a good fit for a group class. My focus is helping clients teach their dogs the skills they need to stay in their homes for a lifetime and not end up in a shelter. I do not treat aggression, but I do work with reactive dogs. I want to provide simple, fun dog training that anyone can succeed in doing so they can enjoy their life with their dog!
