Christie uses positive reinforcement techniques to train dogs using treats, verbal praise, toys and petting to achieve the desires behaviors we are looking for with our canine friends.  Her training classes are fun and family orientated.  She trains dogs based on trust and communication and stressing the importance of eye contact, socialization and prevention of behavior problems.  Our canine friends have become part of our families, lets teach them the rules of the house and stop punishing them for being dogs. We chose to provide them with a good life. We provide them with shelter, food, companionship and love. In return they provide us with joy, happiness and above all loyalty.

Christie takes pride in her two dogs Amaya (Akita) and Brook-Lynn (Border Collie). Amazing dogs with complete opposite personalities! Amaya came into our home September 2014 at the age of 10 months. A sweet girl, with a sensitive personality. Brook-Lynn enjoys much love and attention. Some would say she is needy! She enjoys couch cuddle time, chasing planes in the sky and her favorite, attacking the water stream from the hose!

Diane

Diane has spent all her life surrounded by animals, starting in Germany with horses and rabbits. She has been the proud owner of many dogs, cats and even a few hamsters over the years. Diane worked at Best West Pet Food for 15 years, the last 5 years she offered puppy classes.

Diane has always used positive training methods to get the best out of the dogs and owners in her classes. Her favorite philosophy is "If its fun, they will try".

Her favorite part of training is to see the end results after five or six weeks of training, to see the growth the dogs and owners have achieved is wonderful.

Diane is the proud owner of Static an Australian Cattle Dog and Blue, a Border Collie Mix. Orion and Static have played flyball, agility and disc dog sports. Blue has been training for agility and competed in his first disc trial this year. Blue will be starting flyball soon.
