1:1 Sessions

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.


Private Small Groups

A flexible, low-cost option enabling owners to create their own custom obedience classes, with full control over the variables that make traditional classes challenging. Choose the time, location, and length of class most convenient for you. Help set the course curriculum, and select the type of training you wish to focus on. Finally, pick your Pack! Learn and practice with close friends, family, neighbors, playdate pals, or dog park buddies. Classes can include 2-5 dogs (or puppies).


Walk & Train

This unique service is designed to bring daily fulfillment & structure to your dog's life, and to provide progressive training that will make your life easier as well. Initially your dog will spend one hour each weekday with me working on basic obedience and practicing mindful manners (plus any specific tasks, skills, or jobs you would like for them to perform). As they progress through the program, they will earn as they learn and can stay to play for half days! Opportunities to join pack activities and participate in structured socialization become available at no additional cost as your dog's listening skills improve - including play sessions, pack walks, and off leash hikes. Flexible options for pick-up and drop-off, but limited openings and availability (only Fairfield residents at this time). Private lessons included for owners, as needed.

What training tools do you use?

My go-to equipment for training and handling dogs includes basic slip leads (Mendota, Lucas Agnew), flat or martingale collars, long lines (Palomine), clickers, and treat pouches. I also utilize transitional leashes (K9 Lifeline), crates, muzzles (Baskerville), harnesses (Balance Harness), pet cots (4Legs4Pets), and training platforms (The Klimb), and can help your dog develop more positive associations with these tools through counter-conditioning. For interruption of certain specific unwanted behaviors, I may use or suggest a Pet Convincer/Pet Corrector, spray bottle, or the Doggie Don't device. If appropriate, and with owner agreement, I can layer in more advanced training tools, including head halters (Halti, Gentle Leader), prong collars (Herm Sprenger), or remote collars (E Collar Technologies Mini Educator). Once a tool has been properly conditioned and the dog has a full understanding of its "language" (pressure/release), I instruct the owner how to safely, humanely, and effectively use it for clear & gentle communication.
