Training Options

My method is to empower you to have better control and understanding of your dog’s behavior.  I work side by side instructing you and your family how to utilize my positive reinforcement training techniques. This gives you the confidence and the tools to carry on throughout your dog’s lifetime.  You’ll learn how to control your dog in life’s everyday situations so that he and your family can live in peace and harmony together.   I offer puppy training and dog training to all ages and breeds.

All lessons are in your home.  For packages, the last lesson or 2 may be out in public with distractions if your dog is ready. I am always willing to meet in a local park if you live outside of my service areas of Mission Viejo, Rancho Santa Margarita, Lake Forest, and Trabuco Canyon or you may pay an extra driving fee for visits further.
