About Us

Every well-behaved dog was once a goofy, excitable, mouthy, jumpy puppy.  It takes time, patience, dedication and loving guidance to turn your puppy into a happy, well adjusted dog with good house and public manners.  

I specialize in teaching puppy guardians how to raise puppies to be great dogs.  My 25+ years experience in the pet care and training field have taught me that the generic, old-fashioned group classes just don't work for most puppies and families.  I provide individualized instruction, breed and personality specific training in a distraction-free home environment for optimal puppy and human learning.

I use science-based positive reinforcement combined with clearly defined rules and boundaries to generate fabulous results.  All members of the family including children and extended family are welcome to join the training sessions.
