SAVE A DOG, TRAIN A DOG.
Usually Trained Dogs Are Not Euthanized.
"Dedicated to providing first class, certified training as well as responsible breeding practices for our canine companions, to foster a culture of humane & responsible pet ownership."
Wisconsin does not require a dog trainer to be certified or have any type of formal education, so, anyone can hang a shingle claiming to be a dog trainer. Don't misunderstand me, there are many self taught individuals out there who do qualify to be recognized as a Professional Dog Trainer. However, there are important aspects of dog training especially pertaining to the science behind their behaviors, that are not easily learned without some form of formal education.
Our dogs are with us for many years and are such an important part of our life as family companions. I believe dogs and their owners deserve to have the best qualified individual working with them at affordable costs in an effort to create a positive life long bond with one another.
In addition to being certified as a Dog Obedience Trainer / Instructor, I am also recognized by the American Kennel Club (AKC) as a Canine Good Citizen (CGC) Evaluator and an American Kennel Club Temperament Tester (ATT).
I began my career as a Dog Trainer in 1983 and a few years ago I felt it was important to anchor my experience by learning the modern scientific facts behind dog training, dog behaviors, human instruction and more. I have studied and earned my Dog Training and Instruction Diploma in the following areas and look forward to meeting with you for any of your dog training needs.......
*The Sensory Abilities Of The Dog.
*Social Behavior And Communication.
*How Dogs Learn.
*The Knowledge Of Conditioning.
*Applied Dog Behavior.
*Testing And Selection Of Dogs.
*House Training And Crate Training.
*The Knowledge Of Proper Canine Equipment.
*The Knowledge And Presentation Of Proper Commands/Cues.
*The Knowledge Of Puppies And Their Needs.
*Teaching Tricks. *Training Through Play.
*Basic Veterinary Issues.
*Behavior Analysis. *Dog Breeds.
*Agility Training and Search And Rescue Training.
*I am also an AKC Approved CGC Evaluator, my Evaluator Number is 96249.
As an AKC, CGC, Evaluator, I've been approved to administer:
*the AKC S.T.A.R Puppy program,
*the ACK Community Canine (advanced level of CGC),
*the Urban CGC
*the Trick Dog tests.
My training experience has evolved from exclusively training hunting dogs to my primary focus now on Obedience as well as "Foundational Training" of Service and Therapy Dog Training. The techniques used in my training program are all based upon POSITIVE REINFORCEMENT, supported by DOG PSYCHOLOGY AND KIND BEHAVIORAL MODIFICATION.
I look forward to meeting you, your family and of course your dog if you’ve already chosen one. If you haven't purchased a dog yet, please contact me before you do, and at no cost to you, I will be happy to share behavioral tendencies information of the breed you are interested in.
