“When we understand the motivation behind the behavior, when we can see what the dog was trying to communicate, when we can see the situation from the dog’s perspective, we are better able to intelligently assess and humanely correct the problem.”

Suzanne Clothier,  Dog Trainer

Is your doggy misbehavin’?

Most unwanted behaviors are caused by lack of exercise and poor socialization skills.  That is why it is so important to start working with your new dog as soon as you bring them home. Older dogs can benefit from a behavior modification program if needed.  In general, the sooner we catch the dog doing something we don’t like, the sooner we can change it.

Below is a partial list of common dog behaviors that frustrate their owners. Together we can figure out what is going on with your canine.  Together we come up with a plan to change the way your dog thinks about their world.

Our Awesome Clients!

We went through 4 trainers before we found Rebecca.  Are we ever glad we finally found the right one! If you know Irish Setters at all, they are SUPER HIGH ENERGY hunting dogs.  Well, she understands him completely.  Unlike other trainers, Rebecca is very easy going and kindhearted with him and with us.  She takes her time so that we all understand what we’re supposed to do.  Finnegan is so much calmer now.  Our relationship with him is growing and our bond with him is much stronger.  He listens to us now and looks us in the eye for approval.  We’ve only been with Rebecca for a few short months but Finnegan’s progress has been phenomenal.  We are so grateful to Rebecca for all she’s done for our family

We started bringing our puppy to Rebecca’s place as soon as we could. We heard great things about the way she cares for dogs and we needed help since was our first dog. Our pup has grown up and we get compliments all the time on how well behaved she is. We will use Rebecca for as long as she continues to work with dogs. We love her.
