I believe that Patience is an integral part of dog training. This is why I named my company and my crazy, high strung, highly driven, never napping, always motivated Border Collie, Patience. I needed a constant reminder!? Without her constantly testing my patience, I never would have become a dog trainer, or certainly not one who has so much experience with incorrigible behaviors.
I specialize in behavioral issues and obedience (puppy, beginner, intermediate and advanced levels) I include a Canine Good Citizen evaluation with the intermediate and advanced classes.
Behavior Issues I work with include, but are not limited to: aggression, phobias, resource guarding, jumping, biting, nipping, mouthing, potty training, in-home and outside destruction, fear, seperation anxiety, submissive peeing, pulling on the leash, and barking.
I am a volunteer for the Rhode Island Urban Search and Rescue team and have been a K9 handler with my dog Patience since 2004. I'm well versed in Search and Rescue techniques (both wilderness and urban)which include: agility, direction and control, obedience and air scenting. This training has helped me to learn a variety of different canine sports/jobs and training methods. I love to bring my experience as a K9 handler of a disaster dog to my pet parents to help them establish new and fun ways to interact with and train their dogs to be the best companions they can be.
