What I love about Private Training is the ability to customize our time together, for your needs!
- get training started early to teach desirable behaviours / prevent unwanted behaviours from beginning
- for puppies, understand what ‘socialization’ REALLY means (mis-understood and the root of many undesirable behaviours)
- why we advise avoiding on-leash greetings (often at the root of ‘leash reactivity’ – prevention goes a long way)
- prepare your home for new puppy by learning and implementing management strategies
- gain an understanding of what you can do on walks to create good habits for your dog and prevent issues from developing
- learn play styles and how to choose great playmates
- get educated on dog body language as it is key to their species communication with each other and us!
- discover how dogs learn and how play accelerates that learning
Playing games that teach your dog life skills…
An innovative approach to training, developed in science, accelerates learning and achieves results that you can use in real world experiences!

From teaching basic behaviours like sit, down and stand to teaching life skills through Concept training using short games. Teaching focus (from distractions), proximity (close to you), recall (coming when called), calmness (learning where and when to be calm). Crate training, making bath time a breeze, prep for grooming, vet visits, muzzle training, addressing ‘leash reactivity’, noise sensitivity, adding enrichment / confidence activities to your dogs life, boundary training… for puppies to adults… there’s no end to what we can teach!
All lessons start in the home. Once you’ve got a handle on the basics and if your dog is ready, we’ll take to the great outdoors to work in real world scenarios together!
Your success is not only my goal, its my passion!
