Animal Training

Begin a wonderful new relationship with your dog 
based on cooperation and trust

You want a dog that greets people politely, plays nicely with other dogs, comes when called, walks calmly on leash, and listens to you as a friend. You want an enthusiastic and cooperative learner who can't wait to train with you.

I can help with your dog, cat, parrot, or any other animal companion. I have formed relationships based on trust with a variety of species — rabbits, mice, guinea pigs, parrots, monkeys, lemurs, alpacas, porcupine, fox, bobcat, turkeys, turtles, and many more — using positive reinforcement, clicker training, and the science of Applied Behavior AnalysisYou can train any animal using these techniques. 

Meet my clicker-trained pet fish, Erasmus:

Any creature -- a dog, a horse, a polar bear, even a fish -- that you shape with positive reinforcers and a marker signal becomes playful, intelligent, curious and interested in you.”  

--Karen Pryor, Don't Shoot the Dog

Training a kea parrot to step up at the Trevor Zoo

I use force-freescience-basedpositive-reinforcement training methods. When you train this way, you do more than train obedience. You learn how to communicate effectively with your dog, building trust, confidence, and cooperation in your relationship.

Just as one would never consider developing an animal care program without a veterinary component, a nutritional component, a social component, and an environmental component, nobody should consider caring for an animal without a behavioral management component."  --Ken Ramirez, Animal Training: Successful Animal Management through Positive Reinforcement.
