With my unique dog behavior training programs you can save time, energy, and maybe even your dogs life

I have spent most of my life learning about and teaching others about animal behavior.

Imagine, in just 5 lessons you can discover many of the training secrets that took me over 30 years to learn

My training programs are particularly effective for teaching new puppies the house rules. I use a lot of positive reinforcement training with the puppy development programs. This is so the puppy can start learning important lessons right from the beginning. Using positive reinforcement will also allow your pup to work for longer periods of time without being excessively affected by the negative effects of stress. Although we want to keep stress down during certain parts of the learning process, we also need to teach the puppy how to deal with the stress encountered in daily life. Hence the stress tolerance exercises we incorporate into the training programs.

What can be expected from this training? My integrated 7 track system can teach you how to begin managing your dog’s behavior on the very first visit! usually the first training visit involves a temperament evaluation, training orientation, and the first hands on dog training lesson.  Many people find their dog’s behavior dramatically improves after the first class.
