Train Your Dog Like A Professional
Get Rid of Your Dog Behavior Problems Today
Did you know that 90% of dog obedience training is training the owner? What better person to teach you how to train your dog than a veteran teacher of humans and a professional dog trainer with 35 years’ experience in training?
I’ve been training dogs and teaching people as a professional for 35 years. I do intensive dog training with owners, in small classes and one-on-one.
When I teach – and I have taught for 35 years – I know that some people learn visually, some learn through what they hear, and some are hands-on learners. As a teacher of humans and dogs for 35 years, I specialize in teaching dog training to owners by using all three means of learning, greatly increasing the odds that the training will be effective. During a typical class, you will read what to do in order to train your dog to do a particular thing (such as sitting), then I’ll explain it clearly to you, then you will physically take your dog through that training exercise. Your results will be dramatically different.
For years, I worked as a respiratory therapist, going into people’s homes, diagnosing their pulmonary illnesses and other medical problems, and then setting up solutions and training caregivers in how to operate and maintain the solutions. If the caregivers made a mistake, someone could die. I trained them intensively and with great success. What that means for you, as a dog owner is that I am by nature and training a true professional, my methods of working with people are tried-and-true. It also means I am expert in assessing a situation, such as your dog’s misbehavior and what you may be doing to affect it, determining how to solve it, and teaching you to train your dog yourself.
Are you considering using a trainer from a Big-Box-Store? Think twice.
They’re usually low-paid workers who didn’t necessarily have any prior experience with dog training before they applied to the Big Box store. They work with large groups of dogs and their owners in an attempt at one-sizes-fits-all training. (The owners also have to go to the store; there’s no home visit). They don’t have true strengths in teaching, don’t understand proper canine behavior over a dog’s entire life span, and too often make up things on the fly. They are not able, as I am, to diagnose a problem, put together a customized training program, and implement it. So neither you nor your dog will be as well trained.
