My degree is in animal psychology and my primary focus is working closely with the entire family in a private in-home training environment as I evaluate the emotional and psychological make-up of your pet.
I specialize in both Dog Obedience Training and Dog Behavior Modification Training, two methods which may look the same however the outcome and reward structure are very different.
Obedience training teaches a common language (Come, Sit, Down, Stay, Leave It, etc.) which enables owners and their pets to communicate. However, understanding commands means nothing if your dog is excited, fearful or aggressive because, just like in humans, emotions can override rational thinking. Which is why, my sessions also include Behavior Modification Training, which changes the way an animal thinks, understands and feels.
