What Gets Addressed – Theory, Practice and Implementation

Sessions and Consultations are designed to address all you need to know and do to create and maintain a healthy, happy relationship with your dog.

Training approached in a truly meaningful way –  a comprehensive, respectful and lasting learning experience for you and your canine, tailored to suit your individual situation and your life style.

I teach you how to use methods of communication and instruction that dogs instinctively understand and respond to.  No reliance on training methods such as treats or force and dominance. 

A session covers theory and practice – encompassing a full spectrum of essential and interdependent elements that work together to  enable a happy, healthy, confident, obedient canine…
