Happy 2024! A new year can feel like a fresh start and it's a great time to turn thoughts into actions. If you have been struggling with your pet's behavior, there is no time like the present to ask for help, make a plan, and work through the challenges. 

I am committed to keeping my services as affordable for my community as I can. I always have and always will prioritize accessibility to pet behavior help. One way I do that is by offering small training packages at the lowest price I can afford. That way we can reassess our progress often and none of us have to commit to training time that isn't needed. 

One of my favorite parts about what I do is creating peace and harmony with pets. If you need some help I hope you'll reach out! 


Just dropping in to say hello! Life can be hectic (especially this time of year) and despite your frustrations with your dog, you may not feel like you have time for formal training. Have no fear...training doesn't have to be formal. I'm all for informal and casual learning. All you need are the tools to implement something new into your routine and before you know it, your dog's behavior will be changing. If you can't yet tell, I'm not into "robot dogs," as I call them. As long as you have a positive relationship and effective communication, then all is good. If you have a few hours to spare in the next month or so, then we have enough time to make some big changes in your life and your pet's life!


Selecting a dog trainer can be daunting given all of the options available. An online search can yield hundreds of results! Knowing which types of training to use can also be really confusing, since dog trainers seem to each have their own way. I recommend by starting with thoughts on what makes YOU most comfortable. Would you feel comfortable with a trainer putting a shock collar or prong collar on your dog? Would you be comfortable using those tools yourself? Ask trainers what tools or methods they're willing to use on your dog and eliminate those using any that make you uncomfortable.

Another important question to consider is, how will my dog feel during the training? Research has shown time and time again, that animals learn better without the experience of fear, pain, and coercion. When you remove those tactics you minimize the potential for emotional damage and as a result, maximize long lasting training outcomes. In other words, allowing your dog to learn free from discomfort, you leave his mind open to processing just the good stuff without having to navigate the scary or painful stuff at the same time. You may also want to ask the trainer, "what would you do..." questions, to get a feel for how they would handle your dog. If you don't like the answer, they're not the trainer for you!

There are many well educated and credentialed dog trainers in your area, like myself, so shop responsibly so that you and your dog have a positive training experience that lasts! <3
