Why choose us? What sets us apart from the rest? Why bring your beloved family member to TLC? What makes us different?
I look at every dog I meet, as if it were my dog. With my canine education and knowledge, if this dog was placed in my hands today - what could I do to make things easier and create happiness for this dog? What can I do to decrease this dogs over arousal levels, high stress levels and anxiety levels? What can I do to create harmony in the home? What can I do to create RELIEF for this family?
When working with any dog, we need to OBSERVE your dogs behaviors, IDENTIFY the behavior concerns, understand what your dog is COMMUNICATING to you and build a PLAN on how we can create a feeling of RELIEF for your dog. Take the time to prioritize you dog training GOALS. The SMALLER the STEPS, the greater the SUCCESS.
RELIEF doesn’t happen over night. It takes time, commitment, patience and above all - COMPASSION.
Dog behavior training is best compared to a personal training program, a therapy program or a first session doctor’s appointment. It’s a journey and a process, we learn as we go and adjust when needed.
I am a huge vocabulary trainer, meaning if we set the right words in our heads, we set the positive mind set. By using words such as CONNECTION seeking, instead of ATTENTION seeking - it completley changes how we visualize our dogs behaviors.
I specialize in puppy training, starting at 8 weeks of age, setting up your home environment for best success, and decreasing and or eliminating behavior problems forming strength into adulthood where it takes much longer and longer commitment to uninstall. Working hard together on understanding communication, socialization and exposure into their new world ahead, being kind and patient, and consistent.
When giving your dog CHOICES we build CONFIDENCE creating the CONNECTION.
Looking forward to meeting you and working together!
