Training should be fun for both you and your dog! I use effective and humane positive dog training methods consistent with recommendations by the American Veterinary Society for Animal Behavior and Animal Assisted Intervention International. I never use behaviorally risky tools like e-collars – it’s simply not necessary. You can get great results without them!
Big Picture Approach to Canine Behavior
A dog’s behavior is impacted by many things such as the dog’s age, stress level, genetics and experiences. I teach owners how to understand their dog’s behavior, body language and how to implement effective, non-confrontational techniques to develop a healthy relationship with their dogs.
Customer Service Oriented
Although demand for has increased over the years, my husband and I have opted to keep Cooperative Paws small so I can focus on each client’s needs. I am accessible by email and answer questions quickly, usually the same business day. I work collaboratively with veterinarians, like minded trainers and other animal behavior professionals when needed. No magic wands, but loads of practical, effective and humane training strategies. I will do my best to help you get the best out of your pet — and help you be the best pet owner you can be!
