Ethos

The biggest predictor of long term success with any dog is the relationship they have with their humans. My program is relationship based and designed to facilitate communication and trust between you and your dog. By developing a deeper understanding of canine communication, you will learn how to become the leader your dog needs.

My program is customized to the needs of your individual dog and family. I am a balanced trainer, combining rewards and corrections to utilize all four quadrants of operant conditioning, or a scientific approach to behavior modification. I ascribe to LIMA (Least Intrusive, Minimally Aversive) principles, which means using the least force necessary to correct each dog.

Tools I commonly use for all programs are martingale collars, slip leads, transitional leashes (head halter), choke chains, prong collars, and EZ walk harnesses. For off leash training programs, I use only ECollar Technologies brand ecollar systems.
