I teach dogs to follow directions and leadership by using a communication system that is natural for them to understand.  This results in a canine mind that is calm and able to focus and learn.

My teaching methods for skills and behaviors is based on basic canine drives and instincts with consideration to the individual dog's temperament, tendencies, and motivations.

By teaching using what is considered rewarding for the dog (every dog is different), the dog learns boundaries, trust, expectations and reliability.

I am a balanced trainer that takes a holistic approach to training dogs.  I use the least intrusive, minimally aversive (LIMA) approach.  Teaching methods focus on the use of rewards, and I support the humane use of any tools needed as appropriate for the safety and long term effectiveness of the training.
