Skills, knowledge, and experience.
I help people rediscover how much fun it is to share their home with a dog!
Living with a dog with a problem behaviour doesn’t feel like much fun.
I get it. The good news is that it’s never too late to address a problem behaviour, even if it’s existed for a long time.
I’ve spent over a decade teaching animals and helping people build trusting relationships with their dogs.
My focus lies on working with family dogs to help their humans resolve common behaviour problems and more serious issues like fear and aggression.
My goal is always to make sure dogs and owners are happy. I don’t consider a problem resolved unless it’s a win-win for both of you.
I use reward-based methods and teach all my students how to establish a trusting, collaborative rapport with their dog using these techniques. And yes — this approach works with all dogs, of all ages, breeds and sizes.
