Want Your Dog to be the Best He Can Be?

I truly believe in educating the dog’s owner to be as important, if not more important as the dogs training itself. Learning how to effectively communicate with your dog and understanding their needs will transform a “problem dog” to a happy lifelong buddy. My approach is more than basic obedience training and I will focus more on behavior modification. By establishing a clearly defined relationship with your dog, using motivational training methods and providing a structured environment you can maintain a well-balanced owner-dog relationship.

K-9 Training

I am fortunate to have gained the knowledge and skills from working with a highly reputable training facility located in Southern California. I have the experience working with various breeds and understanding the different temperaments and personalities. It made me appreciate and understand the complexity of each dog and why training should be unique to that dog. No two dogs are alike, so training should be specific and unique to your dog’s needs. Methods that worked beautifully for one dog may not work for the next. It is also important to acknowledge these differences and assess the proper training for your dog.

More About Me

 My Training Philosophy

When working with a dog and dog owner I believe in positive reinforcement, motivation and moderation.   My training methods focus on positive reinforcement and negative punishment.  I encourage new behaviors through positive actions, rather than using force or fear. In addition to the training, I will observe and manage the dog’s environment to prevent unwanted behaviors. If used correctly positive reinforcement, applied with behavior modifications can reduce the amount of unwanted behavior.


There should always be a generous amount of praise and reward available to your dog in any motivational training session.  It is also important to know when to correct the dog for any unwanted behavior.  With positive and modified corrections your dog will understand the desired behavior you expect of it.
