I specialize in large breed working dogs that have a job within their family. Often my dogs are useful to help demonstrate training skills, build confidence in young dogs, and increase focus within the human/dog team helping to create families and dogs who love being together. My dog training is done using science based, force free dog training methods to teach dogs the behaviors that are desired around humans. This method is proven to reduce the frequency in behaviors that are undesirable in the human world that we live in. In creating clarity of expectations with a family based approach, my clients can develop the dog of their dreams that fits well in their family’s lifestyle.
Many of my clients are training their dogs to be Service Dogs, Therapy Dogs, and other types of working dogs that are able to demonstrate manners and maintain training in public environments.
I work with the Alliance of Therapy Dogs to satisfy a national standard of training for all Therapy Dogs. I also offer a Service Dog Public Access Test to my clients with disabilities.
