Behavior Assessments & Individual Training.

Understanding your dog's behavior and reactions to stimuli, as well as your role in that behavior are essential to understanding what type of training will help the most. I observe your dog in their own environment. 

Improving your relationship with your dog is often linked to better communication. I can help you understand how to better communicate with your dog so you get the results you want and your dog gets clear boundaries and expectations. 

Many issues with dogs are the result of not enough exercise or not enough social time with other canines.  We provide a safe space for dogs to run and work with each other, communicating, correcting, and learning appropriate canine etiquette.

In my experience, many behavior issues with dogs are rooted in poor communication and misunderstanding your dog's behaviors.   I conduct behavior assessments in your home and devise individual training plans for you and your pet(s).  

Need help specifically with leash walking and socialization on trails?  I offer one-hour training at the Blue Ridge Rail Trail in Piney River.  Safely expose your dog to trail stimuli like bicycles, joggers, other dogs, strollers, and on occasion horses and riders.  Your will learn how to help your dog walk calmly and not react poorly to trail distractions.
