Private coaching is a great solution for owners who want to learn how to effectively communicate with their dogs. I will assess you and your dog and come up with an individualized plan based on your specific needs.

We will work build a relationship of mutual trust and respect, partnership and leadership.Read my philosophy about leadership by clicking here. One of the biggest things that is often missed in any relationship (including human relationships) is working on state of mind. If your dog is in a constant excited state of mind, he won't be able to communicate and learn effectively. The first step is always to teach you and your dog how to remain calm, in all situations.

Individuals learning to train their dog through private lessons must be committed to doing considerable practice time on a daily basis in order to keep up with the curriculum.
