Are you struggling with your dog's behaviour? Dogs may experience challenges in daily life that can impact their quality of life, and yours. We can help with:
Fear/aggression towards dogs and/or people
We can also help with manners and life skills such as:
Paying attention to you
Coming when called
Walking on a loose leash
Ignoring people and other dogs unless given permission to greet and learning how to greet politely
And much more!

We work "under threshold" so that the dog can learn. That means working at a distance and an intensity where the dog is comfortable and feels safe.
We set the dog up for success by arranging the environment so that the dog is empowered to choose the behaviours we want (e.g. looking away or looking at you, moving on) instead of the behaviours we don't want (e.g. barking, lunging).
We implement management strategies so that the dog is not practising stressful and undesirable behaviours while we work on changing the dog's emotional response to triggers.
We look at the dog as a whole to understand and meet the dog's needs. We add enrichment, choice, and control wherever we can to reduce stress and build confidence and optimism.
You have the right to refuse any parts of the program you feel are not appropriate for your dog. I encourage you to let me know if this is the case so that I can adjust the program to meet your needs.
You have the right to ask questions at all times about the services I offer and the methods I use and to be clear on all relevant details before consenting to the training and/or behaviour modification.
You have the right to privacy and to trust that I will not disclose information about your dog or our work together, without your explicit permission.
You have the right to expect that you and your dog are treated with respect, consideration, and kindness at all times.
