"We need to learn to understand the language of dogs so that we can understand what our dogs are telling us. That is the secret of having a good life together." Turid Rugaas
The Speaking Dog Training Co.’s philosophies and methods stem from pairing the right combination of proven, science-based methods with an understanding of how dogs communicate. I believe very strongly in teaching my canine and human clients through fun and enjoyable training activities; making it not only easy to understand but also easy to integrate into your daily life. Solely force-free methods are used in all training programs ensuring dogs are eager to learn and perform. Every dog learns at his own pace so I'll adjust our training activities accordingly to ensure everyone is set up for success.
Training doesn’t end when a class is over. My mission is to provide the highest quality training to my clients for a lifetime so my services also don't stop when the class is over. I offer all of my clients continuous support when they need it. Whether answering quick questions, troubleshooting training hiccups, or providing additional resources and information, I help however I can. And everyone is always welcome back for refresher courses or advanced training to further hone your skills.
