I am a certified dog behaviorist providing professional, in-home dog training to the Greenville, SC area (Greenville, Mauldin, Simpsonville, Fountain Inn, Greer, Taylors, Traveler's Rest). I use a positive training approach to build the bond between you and your dog...moving beyond training to true connection.
Think of me as a relationship coach for you and your dog -- present or future. If you want to forge a deep, life-altering connection with your best friend, this work is for you. With me, you will learn in-depth to understand your dog and communicate, so that you know what your dog is thinking and feeling. You'll be empowered to create the friendship and partnership you crave.
If you live in Greenville, we will work in-person. If you live elsewhere, we can work online.

Are you struggling with stressful, worrisome behavior from your pup that limits your lifestyle? Aggression, fearfulness, separation anxiety, biting, chasing, lunging on the leash, and things like this are no joke. Even milder problems like high distractability, hyperactivity, barking, leash pulling, lack of attention, and refusal to come when called or listen off-leash can seriously limit your lifestyle together.
It can be heartbreaking when you love your canine companion but you’re at your wits’ end, you’ve tried everything to no avail, and you’re exhausted, frustrated, and scared of what might happen. Maybe you’re even secretly starting to wonder if you can keep your pup at all…
Take heart, because these things can be turned around, and in many cases, faster than you would have ever imagined. And, your understanding and bond with your dog will grow massively through the process.
You will learn exactly how to communicate with and manage your pup to see continued, long-term improvement, in a loving and effective way. The majority of my clients see significant improvement after this program and are able to continue fine-tuning on their own to get the full results they want.

You long to enjoy a soulful connection with your best friend, but you’re limited by time and other responsibilities. Or, maybe you just don’t trust yourself to handle all the training you feel like your dog needs on your own.
With this program, I’ll do the day-to-day work for you. You can fill in when you’re available. I’ll handle teaching your dog what he or she needs to do, managing behavioral issues, and covering intensive socialization. We do field trips and outings as well to make sure your dog is steady, comfortable, and reliable in a range of situations. The specifics of what I’ll work on with your pup are tailored to your exact situation and needs.
You’ll learn how to connect, too. This program also includes training with you and your family so that you are prepared to support the work that your pup and I are doing together. This way, your dog bonds with YOU, not just with me.
No need to pass your best friend off to stay in a strange home with a trainer, either, where you never know exactly what's going on when you can't supervise. Your dog stays with you, safe and sound -- building a stronger, healthier relationship with you and becoming a fully functional part of your family.
