Shifting the way people relate to and partner with animals

Through collaborative learning, I guide clients in developing strong relationships with their dog in a meaningful, genuine, and gentle way.

I believe we are continuously in conversation with our dogs. You might not be aware of the dialogue you are having with your dog but that’s what I’m here to help you with!  Our relationship with animals goes deeper than body language and behavior analysis. I believe you understand much more about your dog than you know!

Most of us have had a special moment with our dogs or another animal.  You may remember a moment that seemingly defied time and space and you felt total peace and congruence with an animal.  It may have been a quiet moment of synchronicity, a gut feeling that led you down a specific path, or an unmistakable sign to help you with a decision.  Whatever it was, you felt it and it had an effect on you, on your dog, and on your partnership.

I believe in teaching more than the mechanics of training behaviors.  Our feelings, intentions, and reactions matter in our relationships with dogs.  Communicating with a dog with that depth of authenticity yields profound results.

I want to restore your belief in the magnetism that drew you to animals as a child. It’s more than the love of animals that pulls you in.

No matter your goal, I’ll encourage you to learn but I’ll also push you to “feel” your way through developing a partnership with your dog and understand when to change gears by listening to your own intuition.  

Most importantly, I will help you learn from your own dog to progress toward your goal in an organic way.  Regardless if you are interested in canine enrichment activities to keep busy dogs happy or you hope to become a professional truffle hunting team, I’m here to help you!

Dogs are amazing and can learn to find anything from your lost keys to plants, mushrooms, toys and more. I am a leader of learning with repeated success training detection/ sniffer dogs through test and trial (humble learning), education, intuitive teaching and application of new discoveries in animal behavioral sciences.

Through collaborative learning, I guide clients in developing strong relationships with their dog in a meaningful, genuine, and gentle way. I help clients deepen their connection with their dog while providing a practical activity to satisfy every dog’s desire to use their nose.

Thank you for spending your time with me here in this online community!
