Balancing Love and Discipline

There is an incredible movement happening in the dog world. A kindness revolution. The old-style way of training is finally being put to rest and the new is struggling to emerge. The pendulum has swung from using only negative reinforcement to using just positive. I have studied both training styles and it is clear that most aspects of the new school are far superior. I can help you learn how to better communicate with your dog and bring a balance of love and discipline to training.

Private sessions provide you with the opportunity to address your specific concerns about your new puppy or dog as well as ensuring that everything in your home is set up properly for maximum success with your canine companion. As well as dealing with existing issues, in-home sessions can help ensure that future problems are prevented from occurring. In addition to the more traditional concerns that owners have such as housebreaking, barking, separation anxiety and leash walking, private sessions can address such issues as bringing a second dog into the household, introducing a new baby to your dog and even introducing the dog and the cat.

Private sessions are held in your home or, when appropriate, in a setting conducive to addressing your specific concerns and last 1 1/2 hours. Whether you are bringing a new puppy into your home, adopting a rescue dog or confronting new issues with your current pet, a private session is an ideal solution to meet your special needs.
