Specialized Dog Training

 Professional Dog Training for dogs of all breeds and ages

Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced and Competitive Training for dogs and their owners. 

Over 30 years of experience of training & competing . AKC Certified 

Specializing in Competition Training for Obedience, Rally, Agility and Draft Work

I do not certify Service, Support or Therapy Dogs but I do offer training to assist you and your dog as well as Canine Good Citizen Testing which is required by most organizations and is essential for any dog having public access. 

I specialize in adopted/rescued and working  dogs but all dogs of any age and breed are welcome.

I offer training beyond the "basics" for the "Family Dog" or for the "Performance Dog".

Intermediate and advanced training in Obedience, Rally, Agility, Draft Work, Carting and Scent Work.

   My training goal is to use Positive Reinforcement - rewarding good or desired behavior  and not rewarding or acknowledging bad behavior. When using positive reinforcement dog training you can use treats, toys, physical affection, verbal praise or a combination of any of those, to reward your dog for correct behavior. I also use some of Cesar Millian's (The Dog Whisperer) techniques and practices when dealing with behavioral or pack issues. I also believe in teaching a dog to THINK making  the correct choices and decisions.

For owners-I believe in responsible pet ownership and training your dog to become a Good Canine Citizen.  Leash your dog and abide your local regulations regarding your pets. 

Socializing your dog is very important,
