Let's make the perfect Dog for you
My story. , Dog Behavioral Consult & Dancer
It takes 2 to Tango!
After 25 years as a top competitive Ballroom & Latin dancer/teacher. I found my calling. Helping people by training their dogs!
Dog's are positive by nature and want to please their owners. If yours needs help I am here for you. If yours has lost its way I will get them back on track.
Where I differ from other trainers is in my ability to communicate with owner's and their dogs to ensure the owner gets exactly what they need from their dogs. Most dog trainers are great at training dogs but not so great when training people. If your dog only performs for the trainer your money was not well spent!
I am different from them.
In 2000 I was ranked Top Dance Teacher in the USA for The Dancer's Cup Circuit. In 2009 I was ranked 2nd place. I have spent 25 years teaching the most difficult movements & patterns to my many students & dance partners around the world.
I teach humans and dogs to partner each other just like a dance. I train you both.
I do private lessons, video lessons, phone consultations and board and trains.
No matter how we choose to train your dogs. I will make sure you have the knowledge & skills to keep your dog improving even when I am not there!
"A spoon full of honey will catch more flies than a gallon of vinegar."
The same is true in dog training. Negativity and unnecessary corrections break down your dog. Your goal should be always to build the confidence of your dog while getting the behaviors you want. Only if absolutely necessary should your dog be given a correction and it must always be done fairly and in a way your dog understands. The way I train I make sure positive reinforcement is at minimum double the frequency of any correction.
This guarantees your dogs will love training with you and love their new behaviors.
It is unacceptable to make any dog fearful.
This type of positive training also ensures fearful dogs become confident dogs. Aggressive dogs learn not to be triggered and puppies grow up to be well adjusted loving members of the family.
During your dog’s stay They will live as part of my family, not in a scary boarding facility. Your dog will live at my home, sleep in my bedroom and interact with my family and my dog through out the day.
When your dog is returned to you you'll be taught how to maintain your dogs improved behaviors. Also you will know how to keep your dog improving when I am not there.
I will teach you how to use a clicker or verbal marker(your preference) and rewards. You will learn how to utilize play and to build the strong relationship that everyone wants with their dogs . You will also have full access to me online and by phone for the life of your dog!
For any of your training needs.
