Local Dog Trainer

During our initial consultation, we will discuss your dog’s behavior, review the severity of your dog’s symptoms, discuss a personalized treatment plan, put management protocols in place, discuss add-ons for your case such as homeopathic remedies, calming aids etc., and pull out your daily schedule to see where training will fit.  At the end of your session, we can choose a training package that will meet your goals. Together, we will develop an individualized treatment plan for your family so that we can reach your goals.

After our initial session, I will follow-up with a detailed training plan, video links, training sheets and product recommendations. My goal is to make you feel confident working with your dog.

Follow-Up Treatment Plan: This is where the progress and training happens. We will have regular communication via phone, email, and video.
