Summary: Sharp Dogs offers private dog training and behavior modification services in the greater Seattle area. We train dogs of all sizes and have considerable experience with small dogs and dogs who struggle with shy and fearful behavior. Services are also geared toward new dogs owners, especially dogs adopted from shelters or rescues. We concentrate on fostering the relationship between the dogs and their people. Bio: Julie Sharp, founder and owner of Sharp Dogs, LLC, offers in-home private training for pet dogs in the Seattle area. In addition to being a Karen Pryor Academy (KPA) Certified Training Partner (CTP), she is a Certified Behavior Consultant (Canine)--Knowledge Assessed (CBCC-KA) and a Certified Professional Dog Trainer-Knowledge & Skills Assessed (CPDT-KSA). She is also a professional member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT). At the Seattle Animal Shelter, Julie provided training services for foster dogs, especially those having problems with fear and shyness. She has fostered dogs from the shelter, helped them with behavior modification and basic training, and then found them wonderful homes! Sharp Dogs does not use physical punishment, intimidation, or fear when training dogs (or their people!). Animal learning research shows that any behavior that is rewarded is repeated (and that punishment slows down the training process). All of the dog training at Sharp Dogs follows the scientifically based guidelines of positive reinforcement. Julie Sharp teaches clients how to motivate their dogs using treats, play, social, and even environmental rewards. Services Offered: In-home private dog training and consultations; basic manners as well as nuisance behaviors, such as jumping up, door dashing, and not coming when called.
