Whether you’re looking for dog behavior consulting, help with cat or horse behavior problems, or clicker training any of these species, we offer a variety of in-home, positive reinforcement based solutions. We will work with you and your animal friend. in your home, and each plan is tailored to fit your skills and your animal’s needs, and comes with phone and email access for troubleshooting between lessons.

Some clients are concerned that training their pet means they can’t have the sort of warm, loving relationship they desire. No worries – we will work only on the behavior that’s causing you problems. If your dog sleeps in your bed with you and no one is getting growled at or bitten, you can continue to do so! If you don’t mind your cat walking on the counter, neither do we! And we think horses who love hugs are the best.
