I offer custom, balanced dog training with an emphasis on developing a companion dog that fits into your lifestyle.

  • Private behavioral consultations
  • Group classes
  • Residence training

I draw upon many different training methods to formulate a program that works for the individual dog. I can travel to your home, meet you in town for socialization and training “where it counts,” you can join me for a hike here at the farm, or we can tailor a program to your needs. I offer residence training for longer term behavioral problems as well as puppy headstart programs. In addition, I can offer coaching for rally and competition obedience.


Conformation handling is available in all venues and breeds. I see handling as an art with invisible, subtle communication between dog and handler that grows as a result of a relationship. Soft hands, balanced training, and elegance are the foundation of my handling.  Contact me if interested in handling services.


I offer a puppy raising service for breeders and owners. This is an individualized program where your puppy lives with me in my home for a length of time and develops the skills necessary for your lifestyle. For breeders, your puppy is raised in my home and is well-socialized, trained, and prepped for a show career. As this program is very customized, please contact me to discuss your ideas and needs; the possibilities are endless.
