Positive reinforcement for pups & their people

PHILOSOPHY

I rely on the 5 C's:

  • Communication
  • Connection
  • Collaboration
  • Cooperation
  • Choice

What C word did I not use?

  • Control

I spent 20 years controlling animals as a veterinary technician. 

I was GREAT at my job, but it wore me down. 

I am SO much happier with my animal interactions now. 


Training a dog is like building any other good habit. You need to be consistent in your efforts before you see results. But once you get into the right routine, the daily investments will make a difference.

I can explain canine behavior to you, teach your pup better social skills & manners, and help you both THRIVE in San Francisco. 

Beyond their basic needs, dogs need 

  • Mental stimulation
  • Choice 
  • Freedom of movement

I can teach you fun & easy ways to improve your pup's behavioral well being. 

"Training is much more than teaching your dog how to behave. It is a way of being with your dog. Be fair. Be kind. Be positive. Be as loyal and honest with him as he is with you. And most of all, be joyful together." - Pat Miller
