Fearful dogs are the reason I became a dog trainer. I love watching them blossom and gain confidence.
Fearful dogs may cower, shake, hide, or may even bare teeth, growl, and show aggression.
Fearful dogs can be noise sensitive, show fear of strangers, and fear of novelty.
Dogs and Kids
Kids love dogs! And children can learn to train dogs too. Your child will receive age appropriate help for how to care for and train the family dog. I also offer a program for expectant parents to help them bring home baby when a dog is in the house.
I also offer FREE dog bite prevention programs for churches, schools, community centers.

Do you have a new dog and need to teach him the basics?
Crate training, house training, leave it, down, stay, walking nicely on a leash, and more to help your dog fit into your household.
Possessive (Resource Guarding)
If your dog is jealous when people or other animals come near you, or he snarls, growls, or even bites when someone comes near his food or toys, help is available. Keep yourself and other members of your household and pets, safe!
If you have an aggressive dog, you may be embarassed when he growls, lunges, or snarls at people. You may even be scared your dog will bite someone or attack another dog. Or perhaps your dog has already bitten.
