Coach For Canines
HomeTrainingClassesNew Farm Dog ProgramBoardingAbout & Contact

If your dog "needs a job," has behavioral issues, or you simply want to excel in obedience, tracking , sport or service work, you need a coach.

    I have been training dogs for the better part of four decades. A former police K9 handler, I have competed at the highest levels in Obedience, Tracking and Schutzhund/IPO  nationally and internationally with my own dogs. German shepherd dogs are my specialty, but I welcome all breeds and mixes.

     If you are looking for the average group pet obedience class, this is not what I offer. Focused, personalized professional coaching for you and your dog is my mission.
