Helping teens in at-risk situations overcome challenges, discover individual strengths, and develop life skills by training shelter dogs to become companions for military veterans with PTSD, TBI, Depression, Etc.
I train dogs using positive reinforcement training to modify unwanted behaviors. I step outside the traditional training box and use therapeutic-grade essential oils to assist in my behavior modification regime when it comes to dogs plagued with fear and anxiety as well as aggression. My philosophy is to heal the dog's mind, body and spirit, not just to rid the dog of unacceptable behaviors. I specialize in shelter dog rehab, reactive rover, and fearful fidos.
