Pulling on the leash

Private, In-home training for you and your dog utilizing positive, science-based and humane training methods.

Services

I offer private dog and puppy training and consultations for common behavior issues such as reactivity, poor impulse control, fear and nervousness, jumping, pulling on the leash, etc.

Together we develop a training plan that fits your lifestyle and works at your dog’s pace. I provide helpful handouts and videos. I follow up to answer questions, address concerns and help you stay on track to meet your goals.

Puppy Training

Puppy training can begin as early as 10 weeks. Your lesson includes information on potty and crate training, chewing, basic cues such as Sit, Down and Recalls, safety and impulse control training cues such as Leave It and Drop. I will discuss the importance of handling and socialization as well. 

Basic Pet Manners

This type of training is for dogs of any age. We will work on the basic foundation skills which will help you enjoy a polite pup. We will work on Sit, Down, Stay, Loose Leash Walking and going to Place. We will also discuss general dog management and behavior with the goal of educating the owner on how to utilize positive reinforcement in their daily life with their dog.

Behavior Issue Consultation

Many dogs have habits and issues that can be helped with proper training and counter conditioning. If you have a specific behavior concern or question, please contact me.  We can discuss the issue in person and develop a plan to help your pet stop bad habits. 

Canine Good Citizen Training

Every dog should be well mannered and welcomed anywhere pets are allowed to visit. There are 10 components to the AKC Canine Good Citizen Test and if your pet has basic manners then you have the foundation to take your training to the next level. I will help you build the skills needed to take the CGC test. I will work with you in different locations so that you and your dog can proof your skills and pass the AKC CGC test.

Canine Life & Social Skills Training

Does Your Dog Have C.L.A.S.S.?

Canine Life And Social Skills is very similar to AKC CGC.  The difference is you are teaching your dog using real-life scenarios.  Does your dog stay in the car until you release him? Will your dog politely sit at the door while you unlock it to carry groceries inside?  This is a fun program that helps the dog and the owner work on basic every-day skills that make life enjoyable for everyone.

How Can I Help?

My Philosophy

To help you develop and maintain a quality relationship with your dog, as a dog is a companion for life.
It really is about both ends of the leash.
