Top Rated Local Dog Trainer
Get To Know Active K9
My training approach focuses on developing a positive relationship between dog and handler. The key elements in building (and maintaining) this type of relationship are:
- Mutual respect
- A clear line of communication
- Healthy boundaries
- Positive and negative consequences
Before we can begin to change behavior, we need to know what motivates the dog. This includes the motivation behind unwanted behavior and what motivates your dog to learn new behavior.
What ACtive K9 Can Offer
When you hire me, my program begins with getting to know your dog. This process starts with a complete behavior assessment, during which I will examine your dog's energy, motivators, triggers, obedience, and your handling skills. Having a healthy pack drive is the foundation we build on. Just to be clear, yes I train dogs... but for the training to stick, the handler must be properly educated as well.... meaning parent/handler participation is required.
