Goal Oriented Obedience Training
Answering the frequent question,
"How did you learn how to train dogs?"
Growing up in Connecticut, I spent a lot of my childhood around dogs and horses. My interest in dog training piqued after college so I decided to design my career around working with these amazing animals. For the past 20 years I have coached puppies, adult dogs, and their owners, in ways to improve their relationship. I have gained invaluable hands-on-experience through group classes and one-on-one exchanges. I continually study various trainers and animal behaviorists and their methods of working with dogs, as there is no one way to train a dog.
Every dog and their living situation is unique, so I work with each one and give the specific guidance needed. Whether you are thinking about getting a new dog, have a new dog, or already own a dog with behavioral problems, I am here to help.

It’s never too late to teach an old dog new tricks, and I believe it’s never too late to train any dog. My services are designed with you and your dog in mind, and I believe in working as much with you as with your dog. I’m proud of my high success rate and the level of satisfaction my clients, and their dogs, come away with every time - guaranteed.
One on One
Every dog and owner has specific needs and objectives. My goal is to set up a personalized program to address those needs and achieve objectives in a conflict-free environment. There is a strong focus on the communication skills between the owner and the dog. The owner will come away with a clear understanding of the methods being used, and how they can be applied in real life situations.
Proper obedience training can help eliminate future behavior problems. Puppies naturally behave like dogs and need to learn how to live with people.
The foundation skills of, "Coming
When Called", "Sit", "Down", "Heeling" and "Stay" are important building blocks to a healthy relationship.
Is your dog:
Jumping on counters?
Jumping on people?
Pulling on the leash?
If you need help with a specific behavioral issue, there are solutions. Sessions will be personalized to fit your dog’s needs and your lifestyle.
