Carpe Diem! When faced with challenges, see opportunities! Thanks to COVID-19 canceling all endurance events around the country I now have the time to do something I have always wanted to do: Coach Pet Owners as they teach their pets basic obedience, advanced skills, tricks, and manage unwanted behaviors.
About me: For the last 10 years, all my dogs came to me as stray, feral, unsocialized, even sometimes dangerous souls. All needed to learn basic obedience. All exhibited serious behavioral challenges (frustrating puppy behavior, serious resource guarding, extreme reactivity, even aggression towards dogs and/or people). Using my university level education in psychology, learning theory, behavior modification, my knowledge of animal behavior, SMART Goal Setting, and family therapy theory, I created clear systematic pain-free plans to teach basic obedience. Over time, I modified unwanted behavior of my exceptionally challenging dogs. I was successfully able to integrate them into my family as happy, healthy, harmonious companions. With less stress and positive communication methods, we became training partners and family. Now I am offering this assistance to you.
What can I do for you? Virtual Pet Owner Coaching Consults via Zoom with Online Support. Because COVID-19 is putting severe limits on what we all feel comfortable doing in person, I am using a Virtual Coaching Model and offering Flexible Affordable Rates.
1. Schedule your FREE initial 60 minute consult to determine if I can help you before you invest a cent. (firstname.lastname@example.org). 2. After we decide to work together, I will require a minimum 3-session committment to start. 3.Each coaching session consist of a 30-minute Zoom meeting. We create clear, specific, realistic treatment-training plans that you can implement at home. For one week, you will have unlimited access to my coaching guidance via email. Through the use of videos provided by me or created by you (if/when possible), we work together to help shape the behavior of your pet through positive, kind, and compassionate methods.

I understand how exhausting, overwhelming, upsetting, frustrating, and even scary it can be to own an untrained dog. I know what it feels like to want life with a challenging dog to improve while not knowing what to do. I am offering you compassionate, judgement-free, educational, evidence-based, and supportive pet owner coaching. We can teach your dog basic obedience and overcome challenges together.
