Services 

I offer a variety of services and packages to help create desirable behavior in your home. Sometimes we get busy - too busy to train our own dog, I have services for that too (Day Training). Learning theory is true across species, for you, your dog, ponies, and pigs. I believe in a kind and evidence-based method that takes into account the emotions of every learner. 

 

I am also available for seminars on a variety of topics including behavior in the veterinary environment, learning theory, puppy development, human skills for effective positive reinforcement, the conditioned emotional response and the use of play in training. Please contact me by email for more information. 

 

Note: Beginning July 1st 2018 there will be an added 6% sales tax to all training services in Kentucky.

Packages include one initial session of 90 minutes and two sessions of 60 minutes. We will cover the human learning component and you will learn to communicate with your dog in a way that reduces frustration and creates joy between you.
