-  No coercive methods are used.

-  There is no overnight solution for a reactive dog.  Owners must be committed.


Private training sessions:  anything can be covered in a private session:  manners, loose leash walking, tricks, or behavior management.  Whatever you'd like to work on.


The Collie Show:  I do live shows for parties, assisted living facilities, rehab centers, schools, libraries, and churches.  See the tab for The Collie Show!


Canine Fitness training:  FitPAWS training is combined with Parkour and just plain fun.  Well-suited for older dogs, competition dogs, and your hiking buddy.


Rabbit Hopping (competitive) and Rabbit Agility:  training is available for rabbit owners who would like to have even more fun with their rabbits.  Group or private. Excellent for 4H groups!


Chicken training:  Yep!  If you really want to improve your skills as a dog trainer, try training a chicken.  Go ahead and laugh... but your eyes will be opened when you try this.
