*Featuring the Gentle Leader and the Halti Head Harnesses, as ​I do NOT encourage the use of choker/prong or electric  “training collars” as solutions- these are tools for advanced training
I do encourage food and life rewards as positive feedback for wanted behavior
- we will focus on wanted behavior giving your dog a clear path to being a good dog!
I do not scold or painfully correct unwanted behavior- no more "NO" be prepared to focus on redirection and guiding your dog to awesomeness.

Dogs want to be good. It is our responsibility as owners to give them that opportunity.
99% of the time; a misbehaved dog is a confused dog. Its is our task to clearly communicate with and guide the animal in the direction of being well behaved. A good dog handler is able to guide a dog in a positive fashion the elicit the wanted behavior. Good training requires patience, consistency, repetition, patience, creativity, energy, patience and time. (Lots of patience on the giving and receiving ends!) A good dog trainer is able to practice these skills with both animal and person. By consistently providing a guided, rule oriented, positive environment we can create a space where dogs and humans can coexist peacefully and enjoyably!  *same rules apply to kids, I have 2 boys 9 and 13 y/o.  Like Kids, Dogs need Rules, Love, Guidance and Consistency!
