Love Your Dog is committed to using humane, force-free, and fear-free methods in working with animals. When you work with me, I bring my education and certification in canine training and behavior with Catch Canine Trainers Academy, and my education and training as a Certified Tellington TTouch® Practitioner. By offering these respectful training methods and techniques from both areas of study and experience, I can help teach dogs and the people who love them how to learn together, while enriching their relationship.
I do not use controlling methods or aversive approaches in my training. I believe with knowledge, compassionate leadership, and respect, we can influence our dogs to make good choices with positive methods that are productive and healthy. With positive methods in place, along with good management and protocols, we can live our lives with our dogs in a way that is balanced, safe, and meaningful, as we learn and grow together.
Always take time to look into the methods dog trainers use, as well as their education and credentials before you hire anyone to work with you and your dog. The dog training industry does not have regulations that require an education in dog training, or credentials, to operate a business as a dog trainer. It is worth the initial investment of time to assure that the training you sign up for feels good!
Way to Stay!
This Pet Parent has invested time in training with clarity, consistency and positive reinforcement. Her 14-week-old puppy nails a "Stay"!
It is worth the investment of time and training to have a solid recall with your Dog!
We practice these cues when we don't need them so that we have them when we do need them!
From Children's Toys to Chicken Bones this is an important Cue to have in place!
This sweet dog was totally obsessed with this toy truck! He would play the dreaded “Keep Away” game with it and would not leave it alone.
The investment of time and training has paid off! Now his Pet Parent just asks him to "Leave It".
5 behaviors were chained together to build and finish this fun trick! Building these behaviors is a great way to engage and learn with your dog while building your relationship!
I love working with behavior issues, basic manners and obedience training, but sometimes it's great just to have some fun learning a sweet trick with your dog!
