I will provide you and your family with the tools you need to train your dog, and I will help you to build a better relationship with your dog. The training is safe. I use positive training, which is a component that can prevent the dog from exhibiting the side effects of punishment, see the American Society of Veterinary Behavior Association website, position statement on punishment. The training is also sensible. I can always adjust training and behavior modification schedules to fit your lifestyle and dog, while still getting results. Kindness to the pets and to the client always comes first.
