DOG TRAINING & WELLNESS SERVICES
Many ask, “When is the best time to begin training my puppy?” Your pup begins learning the moment their paws touch the ground, so they are never too young to being learning human language and structure. It is much easier to train in behaviors you wish to have from your pup, than RE-train once bad behaviors have set in.
My goal is to set your pup up both now and in the future to be a well-adjusted “canine citizen” in and around your home!
Growling, barking, lunging, showing of teeth, snapping and biting – aggressive behavior in dogs can be classified in different ways, depending on what purpose the aggression serves.
My extensive knowledge of the neurology of aggression and research-based behavioral modification procedures go into every custom training plan which is created after the initial assessment.
NUTRITION = BETTER HEALTH
Just as in our own health, dogs may show malnutrition through skin conditions, diabetes, arthritis, and other chronic ailments. They may also express it through such behavioral issues as growling, biting, chewing, nervous barking, excessive behaviors and more.
Behaviors of this kind can alert me –holding certification in canine nutrition – to what holistic nutrients may be missing from their diet. You’ll receive recipes and food resources to help you help your pup.
IN-HOME, My Office & LONG DISTANCE OFFERING BEHAVIOR MODIFICATION, PUPPY TRAINING & CANINE WELLNESS
Training is an ongoing process of growth and understanding between you and your canine companion. In the privacy of your home, or outdoors in the greater Olympia area, you and I together will examine how each interaction with your dog builds upon and enhances desired behaviors.
Address training issues miles away with video technology! I offer distance training via Skype and Google Hangouts. Or try one of my canine behavior, training and nutrition workshops.

WHY CHOOSE Your Canine Resource?
Ongoing Client Support
I offer Lifetime Support to issues covered in behavior modification sessions with your dog and puppy training.
Many factors contribute to dogs behaving in ways that don’t work in the human world. It’s important to factor these in while we’re modifying the less desirable canine behaviors. My approach looks at the health of your dog, the past reinforcement value of the behaviors, and the environment where your dog learns optimally. My unique, holistic approach helps dogs succeed.
I employ only pain-free, humane behavior modification and puppy training techniques. Everything I do is rooted in behavioral research – I never use fear or coercion as a vehicle to learning.
