I am passionate about dogs. My mission is to help dog owners improve their canine’s entire system through my 5 Step PAWSITIVE IMPACT Dog Training Program. This is a daily practice designed to improve a dog’s entire being and be in their best state, inside and out, throughout his or her life.
5 Steps to a Pawsitive Impact for your dog:
1. PAWSITIVE exercise
2. PAWSITIVE training
3. PAWSITIVE nutrition
4. PAWSITIVE building and bonding
5. PAWSITIVE leadership
This 5-Step PAWSITIVE Training Program works to promote and sustain a well- balanced, well-behaved and genuinely happy dog!
A good structured walk provides physical exercise and mental stimulation. This is where dog and owner can both benefit. It is a time to bond, a time to work, and a time to establish rank (which improves training focus). This is an excellent tool to command the dog’s attention and follow through on training directives, plus, it calms their system to be in a better state for learning as the training sessions follow.
I believe that we have come a long way in our tactics to dog training and promote a positive arena with boundaries and consistency. In support of a happy, healthy dog, my training techniques are thorough, clear and concise. I respect that each dog is an individual, and as such, the training that I provide works in a custom frame with a calm, yet assertive approach. We work together to get the results necessary for a happy co-existence between you and your dog.

I believe in functional foods for your dog. My interest here is to help educate owners to help their dog get the best nutrition possible for optimal good health and longevity. Common sense dog food can combine a species appropriate diet with your preferred parameters. Ask me how.
Pawsitive Building and Bonding…
Playtime is a great outlet for pent up energy; is a great stress reliever; and helps you and your dog form a strong bond together. Dogs, being social creatures, enjoy well-spent time with you. I spend time with each client implementing activities designed for different types of dogs’ play preferences, energy levels, and physical abilities.
I also promote “CALM”. This trained state of mind supports better neurological balance and provides a necessary degree of stress control. Stress is remarkably damaging. I work to help you help your dog to live in a calm and mentally sound state.
“The best results of any pursuit are achieved through a calm spirit.”
This is often the most challenging step for many dog owners (it’s hard to be so firm with our beloved “fur-babies”). Strong training management provides clear rule setting and encourages a re-focus when and as necessary. The best structure for your canine is a calm but assertive daily regime to continually influence your dog to perform acceptable behaviors, willingly. When you provide clear leadership, the dog responds accordingly.
This is our 5 Step system. When this is a part of a dog’s daily routine, it works to help ensure your dog’s best possible life. It also provides peace of mind that you are providing structure, balance, well being and discipline for your dog, nurturing an optimal mind, body, and soul.
Our PAWSITIVE IMPACT all starts with an email or phone call where we can discuss the training needs of your dog. We establish your ‘want’ list and then proceed to an evaluation. This can be done in person or online, and here, we determine together the direction and best courses of action for your dog.
