COVID-19: For all training packages, the first three training sessions are virtual. The remaining sessions are in-person and held outside. My goals are to ensure the safety of all of my clients, find success for desired behaviors, and help you feel confident as a dog owner. Thank you, Jennifer (10/26/2020)
Fun, Effective and Positive Training for you and Your New Dog
Not Your Average Puppy Training Class
Start Training Your New Dog
Hi! I approach training with three main objectives: keep it fun, keep it positive, and keep it going!
Keep it fun: I view training as something you want to do in order to strengthen the bond between you and your dog. Dogs view training as 'play time', a way to impress you, and a nice break in their day; I would like to set you up to think that way too.
Keep it positive: Backed by experience and research, I believe the most effective way to train and shape behavior is by rewarding good behavior. I remind owners to find opportunities to set the dog up to be comfortable and perform the behavior that you want.
Keep it going: Training a dog is a lifelong commitment. My goal is for owners to view training as fun and positive so they feel like there is always time to work on new skills and refine the basics.
My goal is to provide dog owners with the tools they need to feel positive, knowledgable and confident about dog ownership.
