Thanks for your interest in SMART DOGS. We teach better behavior to both ends of the leash.
ALL BREEDS, ALL AGES, ALL BEHAVIOR SITUATIONS. If you are ready to learn, then, yes, I can help you. My 25+ years experience ranges from Early Puppy Development & Socialization; Prevention and Modification of Fear & Aggression; a variety of Dog Sports for improving confidence, backyard fun and for Titles (Agility, Dance & Freestyle, Obedience, Parkour, Rally, Tracking, Treibball); to numerous Certifications & Activities (e.g., Therapy Dog Evaluator, Canine Good Citizen Evaluator, Dog Sport Judge, Dog Scouts of America).
LIFE WITH DOGS: All new students begin in Life With Dogs, no exception. This comprehensive small group class meets once a week for 1 hour and runs 8 weeks. Current Tuition $350 includes 24/7 access to SD’s Online Classroom, Video Tutorials, Articles, Private Learning Groups, and unlimited access to me by phone, text & email for additional coaching between our weekly in-person sessions.
WHAT YOU’LL LEARN. This class teaches crucial Life Skills to both ends of the leash. More importantly, LIFE WITH DOGS teaches you, the human end of the leash, to understand & communicate your dog; how learning & behavior really work; and how to maximize the power of positive reinforcement. We’ll sort fact from fiction, truth from folklore, sense from nonsense, remove labels & stereotypes.
WHY? So you can maximize progress and maintain a safe, happy home. So you can avoid the all too common errors which damage the human-canine bond. So you can instead build strong, desired behavior and a healthy relationship with your dog.
NO PAIN. NO FORCE. NO BULLYING. NO NONSENSE.
If you have questions not answered above let me know. *Be sure your email filter allows email from “@mysmartdogs.com”
I look forward to teaching you & your dog and Bringing out YOUR BEST Behavior.
