My Story

Dogs are my passion

In more than 10 years of working with dogs of all shapes and sizes, and studying the science of dog behavior and learning, I have gained the experience and skills to help dog owners get lasting training results. The training methods I use are scientifically proven, humane and family friendly. Whether you’re thinking about getting a dog, have a new puppy or rescue dog, or already own a dog with behavioral problems, I am here to help.
