Training and skill building for dog owners. On-leash to off-leash handling instruction and guided support to help you achieve your training goals and realize your dog's potential.
What training tools do you use?
My go-to equipment for training and handling dogs includes basic slip leads, flat or martingale collars, long lines, clickers, and treat pouches. I also utilize transitional leashes, head halters, crates, muzzles, harnesses, pet cots, and training platforms - and can help your dog develop more positive associations with these tools through classical conditioning. For interruption of certain specific unwanted behaviors, I may use or suggest Pet Corrector. When appropriate, and with owner agreement, I can help to layer in more advanced training tools over your dog's basic obedience foundation, including prong collars or remote collars. Once a tool has been properly conditioned and the dog has a full understanding of its "language" (pressure/release), I instruct owners how to safely, humanely, and effectively use it for clear & gentle communication.
