Holistic Approach to Behavior Modification & Wellness Support For Dogs



Your dog is family. But, there’s something you need help with. Maybe it’s manners. Maybe it’s anxiety. Maybe it’s just being able to relax on your walks. Or Maybe— you have a dog with an aggressive behavior.

You’re looking for answers. I have them. In fact, I have answers for questions you have not yet even considered as part of the solution.

You’re looking for a trainer who can actually help you through the frustration, the stress, and every phase of resolution — including when you need a tune-up or something new arises.

Behavior Modification is my specialty with customized plans based on the individual dog.

You may also be looking for answers to nutrition and wellness, natural options to health. Perhaps it’s with an aging dog, one who has gotten some tough medical news, or maybe you’re wanting to be really proactive. I can help.

What’s your goal? That’s what we’ll focus on. We create unique real-world training solutions that achieve amazing results with the family dog and his people.  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.

Send in Your Inquiry or Call us to discuss your options. The initial call is always free to get to know me and have your questions answered.

Board and Train

We offer a unique board and train program for basic obedience, off leash obedience and behavior modification, including aggression, anxiety and fear.  Both you and your dog will be immersed in real-life training.

Our Board & Train Program is unique. Bring your dog, stay at at the beach in a private location, and I’ll train you both!

A Week, A weekend. A Day.

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 create a long-term relationship of leadership and enjoyment.

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 Dog Training

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


Canine Wellness & Nutrition

A few years ago, I started looking for answers. Why were so many of my foster dogs, client dogs, and even my own having so many issues with anxiety. Seeking this information put me on a path that changed everything for me. I found answers about anxiety, trauma, and fear in essential oils and aromatherapy. But I also found so much more. I found answers to other behavior problems including aggression. I also started a deep dive into nutrition and now know we can’t separate out nutrition from anything we do regarding out dog’s behavior, health, or longevity.

Today, wellness is tightly integrated into my training programs and woven into the training I provide and to my day to day services to help our pets live healthier, longer lives. Isn’t that what we all want?
