Drake after (with audio and no barking)!
Have you rescued, or are you fostering a super shy dog, an under socialized dog, a puppy mill dog, or a fearful dog whose reactivity to things (people, places noises, animals, etc.) makes it difficult for your dog to fully enjoy his life with you? Fear is at the root of most reactivity for dogs. Let us help you to help your dog decrease fear and stress levels while increasing levels of confidence. We can help with the use of Tellington Touch® practices, calming techniques, a confidence playground, force free methodologies, gentle equipment recommendations, and suggestions in terms of environmental or household modifications. Want to work towards the goal for you and your dog to successfully handle any real or perceived stressors? We can show you how to form a trusting, respectful, patient bond that will last for years. Please ask about our Trust, Reach Teach services.
You love them, they love you, but you just can’t seem to make harmony happen! Let us see if we can address the behaviors (on both sides of the leash) which may be causing unbalance in your lives. Our tutoring (of you and your dog) is rooted in the philosophy of balance, patience and kindness. We leverage calming techniques as well as other force free methodologies to help decrease stress and increase confidence. We can suggest unique equipment, ground exercises, various touch points on your dog as well as modifications to the home environment to help you achieve the type of relationship that works best for you and your dog. If your dog is jumping up, pulling on the leash, inappropriately barking or chewing, exhibiting reactivity to movement, noises, other people or animals, then please reach out and ask for help in getting to harmony.
Are you and your dog at a time in your relationship where age associated issues or illness require some assistance or creative thinking for the best quality of life? Do you have a dog with disabilities such as deafness, blindness, or physical limitations? There is a special place in our heart for senior dogs as well as dogs challenged with physical disabilities. We’ve got a whole list of resources and rich educational experiences to share. And, if we don’t have it figured out we promise to refer you to someone with specialized expertise. Please let us help this very special pet population by asking about our Very Important Pet services.

Here's the good news...We have no set fee schedule. How the heck can that be? We offer a Work it Out (WIO) philosophy! Our WIO philosophy could be a modest donation so we can continue to help others like you and your dog(s). Sometimes we may ask for items on our ever changing Sure-Wish-We-Had-This-List in exchange for services. Sometimes we may just ask for referrals to others who may need help in the future.
Some visitors have adopted a pay-it-forward type of approach with donations. The person we work with before you leaves a donation so that we can work with your dog!
