"It's the micro-mini moments that matter the most" ~ I've coined this because I've said it a million times it's always the small stuff!! ~ BBDT
Training Together at your home
I 100% use psychology teaching you what a puppy or dog needs and how they see the world so you can show up for them no matter where they are in their development or unwanted behaviors you may want to curb. I train in your home it's the most safest place & the most open your dog can be.
I teach trust and become the bridge for you to walk across to build the same type of trust.
Puppies and Dogs
Puppies and dogs I approach in the same manner Except puppies are at a different stage of development Puppies are more flexible to follow, grow, learn and change Dogs are committed to running their family/pack about 2 years of age Dogs can change you have to prove your worth following I like to fill your cup with so much knowledge you can continue to grow together After a bit of time if needed we can line back up or do advanced off leash work
Leash conversations Being in the pocket Aware of every time you hold a leash and how to show up Slight of hand very delicate moments Create big meaning to your dog By showing up properly You put the responsibility on your dog To learn, think, follow and cope properly Which building confidence in you and him/herself With clear expectations of what the world means
Commands to communicate clear expectations Lets Go ~ some say heel it means follow me Sit Down Place Stay Come We use them in combinations We begin with treats to motivate & mold behaviors Once a dog knows what's expected we ask without treats No treats serves the dogs mind The dog is actually thinking, learning and growing.
Tools ~ Herm Sprenger 2.25 or small pinch collar I use them for clarity of our leash communication with the softest of hand with feather like pressure on the smallest lightweight pinch regardless of the size of your dog unless your dog warrants a larger collar though it is rare
Ecollar ~ Mini Educator This tool goes from 0-100 We begin on your dogs working number usually 4 or 5 On my bare arm I BEGIN to feel a stem on 9 or 10 We compound all the leash work prior creating clarity with minimal corrections working to off leash recall as well as impulse control in situations.
I do not correct to get behavior, I teach behavior and correct only once a dog knows the info and is making a choice.
I also work with Doggy Day Cares for there are times when a dog needs to be a dog and loosen up We will never be a dog therefore balanced dog play is so valuable as well as experiencing balanced pack energy It fills a dogs soul for sure
There are times when a dog needs to learn outside the home Because of large unwanted behaviors & personality indifference Their definition of who they are in the home is too strong I can absolutely refer you to a trusted source
Advanced E Collar Training is for those who have gone through proper leash conversation training and we compound the learning over to the e collar for seamless learning and off leash communication 5 One hour sessions
