"when dogs speak, we listen."
"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 and a goal of fostering solid relationships between humans and dogs. I believe very strongly in teaching and empowering my canine and human clients through fun and enjoyable activities that can be integrated into your daily life. Every dog (and human) learns at his/her own pace so all of our programs are formatted to fit anyone's comfortable learning pace.
As a certified Family Dog Mediator®, my mission is to bridge the communication gap between people and their dogs. So many "problem behaviors" in our dogs are actually symptoms of bigger issues at hand. And the reality is, you can't even begin to address those "problem" behaviors effectively and compassionately until you know why they are occurring; that's where the widely celebrated and respected Dog L.E.G.S.® Model comes in.
Together, we will discover the "why's" around your dog's behaviors so we can then scientifically and compassionately approach the "how's" for lasting success.
