Obedience Training

Whether you are interested in a two hour handling session or a multi-week package, you will learn how to get and keep your dog's attention, and train a quick response to your commands with the goal being to have a companion who is a pleasure to live with.

Behavior Issues

We love dogs for their honesty, loyalty, and playfulness, but sometimes problem behaviors can be frustrating. Let me help you with excessive barking, chewing, jumping up, anxiety, shyness, or reactivity. Using Mark McCabe's Training Between the Ears techniques, we can teach your dog the joy of being CALM.

If you want to improve your skills in Obedience or Rally Competition, or to get your dog started learning Agility, I love to help develop you and your dog's teamwork and precision. I have Obedience, Rally, and Agility experience.

Puppy Consults

Puppies are fun, but they can be challenging: high energy, not yet housebroken, chewing on inappropriate things, jumping up, barking, etc. Let me help you get your puppy off to a good start and teach you simple strategies for dealing with Puppy Mayhem!
