TRAINING


CURRENTLY TEACHING TRACKING AND NOSEWORK CLASSES IN VALLEJO/BENECIA. CALL IF YOU'RE INTERESTED 707-373-9163

I HAVE A GOOD AMOUNT OF EXPERIENCE WITH BAT TRAINING (behavioral adjustment training) FOR FEARFUL AND REACTIVE DOGS.

I TRAIN DOGS PRIMARILY OFF LEASH FIRST AND INSTILL IN THEM A DESIRE TO BE WITH THE OWNER AND WANT TO WORK. ALWAYS WORK WITH THEIR DRIVES AND WILL ALSO USE CLICKER TRAINING.

For me training a dog has to be fun or at least a pleasant experience for both, dog and handler.

I always try to adjust to the individual temperament of the dog. Some dogs love to work for treats, others for play, some for affection and others for a combination or just love being with you and/or working.
