Would you like to develop a deeper,
more dynamic bond with your dog?
Cookie cutter training classes can be an easy starting point to training but they don't address your pooch's growth as an individual. Training is not a cut and dry equation to follow. It is dependent on the individual's strengths and weaknesses, current and past situations, environment, reinforcement history, amongst a number of other variables. I offer personalized training programs designed specifically for you and your pooch in order to develop an impactful relationship.

Design a plan that works for you
I offer multiple types of training specific services that you can choose a la carte style to best fit your individual needs. Each personalized program starts with an initial assessment and subsequent hour long sessions. Training sessions can either be in-person for maximum efficiency or via video conference for convenience.
Whether you are looking for some basic guidance on new puppy parenthood, specialized behavior modification plans for undesirable behaviors, or wanting to take serious steps towards training as a support animal -- we've got a plan that can flex to meet your goals.
THE BENEFITS OF
WORKING WITH A
No large classes where you don't feel like you are getting personalized attention. Lessons will be structured much like a group class but with the ability to be flexible on topics we cover dependent on you and your pooch.
SESSION FOLLOW UP EMAILS
Personalized recap emails on what we covered during our sessions and a reminder list of what to practice until our next session. Each email is written individually and with thoughtfully tailored notes on that day's interactions and goals. I don't do generic cut and paste emails!
The power of having access to your trainer! Text me any quick questions during our time together! I also offer 15 minute virtual catch-ups as a program add-on for clients needing further troubleshooting assistance beyond the occasional query you may have. I am committed to guiding my clients to success!
TRAINING INSIGHTS FROM AN EXPERIENCED
Work with a professional with a formal education in the Behavioral Sciences. You will learn how to unravel and understand the complexities of behavior. I am not here just to train your dog or simply tell you what to do. I aim to explain the WHYs as well as the HOWs. My mission is not to keep you dependent on a trainer but rather to give you a deeper understanding of how learning in your dog works and how to creatively use modern training principles in different situations in order to build lasting and meaningful skills.
COMPLETE PROGRAM CUSTOMIZATION
No two classes are ever the same! Each class flexes to your needs and adjusts minute-to-minute depending on what the situation calls for.
You will also get to choose the level at which you would like to be taught. Is the idea of training overwhelming and you just want a basic working knowledge taught in layman's terms? You got it. Or perhaps you would like to compete in agility or train towards service dog certification and would like a high proficiency course with intimate knowledge of all training vernacular and theory? It's all up to you!
You gain access to a wealth of other resources you may need which are personalized to your specific goals. As your behaviorist and coach, I am committed to seeing you succeed.
Just like us, dogs are individuals and deserve to be taught how to navigate our confusing human world using modern, science-backed, ethical and humane training methods. More so, they deserve engagement from us in fun and meaningful ways which allow them to live healthy, happy, enriching, fear-free lives.
Help your doggo develop into the joyful, confident, well-adjusted companion you deserve.
TEACHING THROUGH GAME PLAY
"Scientists have recently determined that it takes approximately 400 repetitions to create a new synapse in the brain - unless it is done with play, in which case, it takes between 10 to 20 repetitions!" -Dr. Karyn Purvis
Did you know that play enhances learning to an astonishing degree? What better way to motivate your dog to engage with you and learn behaviors and skills that will help them succeed in our human world!
