After adopting a dog who provided his fair share of training challenges, I struggled to find good advice and became extremely intrigued with the world of dog training. I found that reward-based methods matched consistently with the concepts I was learning in my Animal Science degree.
I find that helping people to better understand their dogs extremely rewarding. Most of all, I love how a gentle approach to training encourages owners to develop a happy and healthy relationship with their pets.
