Nose work lets dogs engage their natural scenting abilities in a fun and rewarding search endeavor.

With the right foundation and continued training, any dog can do nose work.

Join me in Introduction to Nose Work group classes, or supplement your private lessons with nose work games at home.

I’m on the path to certification through the National Association of Canine Scent Work (NACSW), and I welcome your support.

Puppy Training

Think about how your puppy views the world. Your couch? One huge chew toy. Your coffee table? An excellent platform from which to survey the room.

Puppies are full of surprises. Prepare your puppy for a full, happy life – and engage his amazing brain as soon as you bring him home.

  • House training
  • Puppy biting
  • Crate training
  • Chewing
  • Socialization
  • Jumping on people
  • Come when called

Service Dog

Your adult dog can develop the skills to become a reliable service dog and trustworthy partner. I can help service dog puppies get off to the right start, too.

  • Task Training for ADA Compliance
  • Good Citizen, CGC-Advanced, and Urban CGC
  • ADI Public Access Test

Because each service dog team has a unique relationship, the training process varies. Your dog’s personality and training history and your physical requirements and abilities will have an impact on how often we work together, and how long it will take.

Equestrian

dog and horse

I live in Wellington, Florida, where I train in dressage as an adult amateur.

I don’t miss many Friday Night freestyles or Saturday nights at WEF watching show jumping during the Winter Equestrian Festival. I know what it’s like to have a life centered on horses and dogs.

Teach your dog to:

  • Remain calm around horses and other farm animals
  • Stay out of the arena and paddocks
  • Load up in your SUV, dually, or golf cart
  • Walk politely past other dogs at the show

Canine Good Citizen

The American Kennel Club's Canine Good Citizen program is recognized as the gold standard for dog behavior. In CGC, dogs who pass the 10-step CGC test can earn a certificate and/or the official AKC CGC title. Teach your adult dog how to live in a human world, including:

  • Not jumping on people
  • Sit, down, and stay
  • Walking on leash without pulling
  • Come when called
  • Leave it
