How My Training Works

My training methods are based on over 10 years of professional dog training knowledge.

Observing

First of all, I train using one-on-one private lessons since I have found these to be the most effective.  Classes start with a small warm up.  During the warm up I observe the dynamics between dogs and their owners.   Afterwards, I provide specific advice to increase dog handling results.

Understanding

Next, I like to spend time with the dog to help detect problems and find solutions.  Every session is designed to make dog owners and their pets feel comfortable.  I never use methods that cause dogs pain. I am a strong believer in positive training methods. Occasionally, stricter methods may be required.   All things considered, every dog is different and requires a custom training program.  Each dog also has a unique set of instructions that enables it to pay attention, listen, and look to you for guidance.  Our goal is to better understand your dog.

Equipment

Once in awhile we might use dog training equipment.  I recommend gentle items as much as possible (for example gentle harnesses, treats, gentle leaders, slip collars, and flat collars).  Nevertheless I am also experienced with other equipment such as choke chains, pinch collars, and e-collars.  When necessary, I can teach the most efficient, humane use of these tools.

Results

In general, professional dog training may occasionally be stressful for both dogs and their handlers. In order to minimize stress, I work in short segments.  Additionally, I include breaks for water and relaxation.  Following every training package, I offer a free American Kennel Club Canine Good Citizen test or Puppy S.T.A.R test. These tests are a fun way to measure skills and track progress. I also offer follow-up lessons at a lower rate for former clients.
