I have trained over 100 dogs, and specialize in obedience and behavioral modification. I incorporate midfulness, energy, and meditation into dog training. I started my career at New Heights Dog Training, where i took a one year apprenticeship. The school was under the umbrella of the Michael Ellis Dog Training system out of California, one of the most renown dog trainers in the United States.I have been a long time student of meditation, yoga, and other breathing techniques to calm the mind.
My philosophy is to bring the relationship between dog and owner into harmony. This means setting clear and defined expectations and boundries between the dog and master. I teach obedience based on operant and classical conditioning, I teach positive reinforcement to motivate the dog to learn commands, and use appropriate corrections to make unwanted behavior less likely to occur. I have found that meditation and breathing techniques tend to calm the mind of the owner, and allow the owner to be in a more relaxed and focused state of mind to achieve an optimal result when it comes to dog training.
