DON'T WORRY.
TRAIN HAPPY.
Humane, science-based, professional dog training and behavior consulting.

“I love your dog. I know we haven’t met yet, but I adore your barking Maggie, your leash-pulling Jake, your jumping Lucy, and even your growling Charlie. Using a positive approach, I will teach you how to change behaviors and worries while building a trusting partnership with your dog.

Shhh...don’t tell anyone, but that’s what dog training is all about! Before you know it, you might just end up with a polite pup."

MY TRAINING APPROACH

Kindness and science. Those are my training tools.

 

I am dedicated to dog-friendly, science-based training principles that focus on positive reinforcement and building trust. I do not use any equipment or techniques that rely on fear, force, pain, or intimidation. Ever.

 

Using a humane approach rooted in the science of animal learning means you can effectively address behavior issues while building a fantastic partnership with your dog. Your dog learns skills and trust. You learn to truly understand your dog.

Don't worry, train happy!
