Complete Wellness & Behavior Training For Dogs & Their People  


We create unique real-world training solutions that achieve amazing results with the family dog.  Many results are often seen in your very first lesson.  We teach you how to incorporate dog training into every day life.   We use obedience skills, structure and leadership to address your dog's state of mind to live happily in your home as a well-mannered adult dog.  We also believe in tapping into the natural instincts, leveraging food protocols, breed inherited traits and all the things that make your dog unique and special to meet your goals and have a well-balanced dog.  But don't be fooled - you may have changes to make in your own behavior to achieve your desired results.

Board and Train

We offer board and train programs for basic obedience, off leash obedience and behavior modification, including aggression, anxiety and fear.  Your dog trains with me personally each day and you receive training with me once the board and train is completed.

Our Board & Train Program is currently unavailable. Ask me about a customized training program to meet your needs.

Be sure to see our Workshops


Private Lesson Series

With Private Lessons, you, me and the dog will all work together on the resolution. Reactivity, Separation Anxiety, or even Aggression can benefit from this format so that YOU work through your own emotions and confidence with new skills, timing, and technique. Grow with your dog and learn much more about structure and leadership.

Private Consultations

Sometimes you need someone to help you evaluate the real problem and come up with an action plan specific to your needs and abilities. Let me help you look at the problem through an experienced lens and give you important techniques and goals that put the whole puzzle together.

Ask me about custom consultation programs that include phone, online & in-person support.

All training programs include a complete wellness review as it relates to impact on your dog’s behavior and longevity.




Online Classes

New Puppy, New Dog, New Bad Behaviors... we cover it all. You get to work at your own pace, you still get access to me for Q&A, video review, or even private phone consultations  -- though there is an expected progression timeline in order for you to achieve desired results.

There really are no more excuses for getting the training support your need.   Learn More


Nutrition and wellness

As a trainer, solving the behavioral challenges is such an important part of what I do. It’s the thing that allows dogs to stay in their homes and to live fuller healthier lives. So, as I started to see issues becoming more and more common I started looking for better answers. This didn’t mean just more training, it meant more “whole-dog” solutions. This led me down a path of deep learning in nutrition and wellness for our dogs. All of my training programs now include education and guidance on how these key areas of health can affect behavior and longevity of our beloved pets.



The food you feed your dog has a direct result on his well being -- and his behavior.  Not only have I seen some amazing results in my personal dogs, I have seen behavioral issues significantly improved just by changing the quality of food or protein source and adding fresh real foods for my client dogs. Now, I'm able to help guide you to make better food choices for puppies, aging dogs & all life stages, including the unwell pet who may need a bit of added care to their diet.

Aromatherapy For Animals


Raindrop For Animals

Dana is certified in the healing modality of Raindrop for Animals (and their people).

Benefits may include temporary:

  • Emotional Release

  • Stress

  • Wellness Support

I strongly recommend this for dogs that are unwell or the times in which we don’t have traditional answers.


Emotional Release

Your dog’s limbic system stores memories in much the same way yours does. Using aromatherapy technique, we can help your dog move forward from traumatic experiences, fear, anxiety, and emotional blockages that may be holding him back from living his best life.

Emotional issues can cause health issues.

Let’s take some time to evaluate what your dog is really trying to tell us and help him move forward



Reiki is often called "laying on hands"  but can be done without touching as well.  In fact, we can do this energy work without even being in the same place.

It is deeply based on the knowing that a "life force energy" flows through all of us and that everything in our world carries energetic properties.   Energy is what creates life.  When our"life force energy" is low, illness and stress are more likely.   When our Energy or Frequency is high, we are more likely to be healthier and happier.

All Aromatherapy and Energy Work techniques are available for the dog and horses,
and YOU, their Guardian since the two are often highly connected.
