I promote ethical dog training:
  • Dogs are taught through humane interactions, without fear or pain.
  • Dogs are viewed as subjects, not objects, who are treated with patience and consideration.
  • Dogs are encouraged to think and make choices in a safe, fun learning environment. 
If you are seeking a quick-fix that takes minimal support from you and your family members, please consider another trainer!
Building a relationship with your dog requires your involvement! While it does take some time and thought, the end result is worth your efforts. I will help you understand and connect with your dog in order to make permanent behavior improvements.

                  

I offer dog training services for puppies and adult dogs including: 

·         Small-group 101, 201, 301, and 401 level classes
·           Drop-in applied training classes and "field trip" group training
·           Dog training workshops
·          Individualized training,  day-school, and dog training "camps" 

  
Private consultation is always recommended for dogs demonstrating aggression or serious problem behavior.

Dog Training By Example

Both dogs and people learn through imitation. Beginning dog trainers learn by observing experienced dog trainers. Dogs, amongst other dogs, learn by model as well. Yes, I train people! Teaching you to behave in ways that will appropriately influence your dog's mood, manners, and cooperation has been the secret to my dog training success for the past 30+ years. 

I teach pet owners to model behavior in ways dogs understand and reflect back in willing response and social imitation. These methods are based upon the mirror neurons within the brain which allow empathic learning – without punishment, cruelty, or harsh equipment.

I began training dogs when I was just 15 years old and have been helping pets and their people ever since. 

My dog (and people!) training programs help pet owners teach their dogs to willingly cooperate, demonstrate great self control and manners, and socially interact with kindness and confidence. Here is an example of error-free, positive reinforcement dog training being demonstrated by  my student Nancy and her puppy, Jett:

Our classes are taught at our humble, home-based training facility in Lemont, Illinois.

We also train off site, at the Bolingbrook Park District's Annerino Center, at local strip malls, and at the Waterfall Glen Forest Preserve.
