Life is busy. I understand that you don't necessarily aspire (or have time) to become a dog training expert - that's why you call me! Day training allows me to work with your dog more frequently and consistently to reach your training goals sooner and help take the stress out of dog ownership. 

Dogs are members of the family. Spending time together on training not only builds good behavior, but also strengthens the bond we share with our dogs. Family training offers the opportunity for all engaged members of the family to be present and learn firsthand how to train your dog in the comfort of your home while building your relationship.   

During such uncertain times, we've learned that so much is possible via video chat, and dog training is no exception! Whatever your circumstances may be, I respect your personal preference to seek dog training support virtually and I am fully prepared to deliver. This is also a great option for families who live outside of my service area. 

training philosophy 

My training methods are not only kind to your dog, but based in behavioral science. I will use positive reinforcement methods to motivate your dog to learn and behave in the ways we love most. Positive reinforcement is a reward-based training style derived from operant conditioning concepts in modern psychology. While fundamentally founded on science, most importantly, my approach embodies compassion, empathy, and love for dogs - and it works!

We adopted our puppy,

Dallas, in January 2020 & Heather started training her right away. She is very knowledgeable, patient & a true dog lover! Dallas is a completely different pup now! Any bad habits I inform Heather of, she knows exactly how to train her to stop them from continuing. Heather also worked with us on being able to function with a puppy & a baby! I cannot say enough good things about her!

Heather not only taught my fur baby how to be a good boy, but gave me the tools to be a better first time dog Mom! Thanks to her training, I feel better equipped to give my little guy the best life possible!

Heather is a superstar. I’ve been fortunate to guide her and watch her blossom into the wonderful trainer she is today. She’s very personable and professional when expressing her knowledge and skills in dog training and behavior. Without a doubt, she is a profound addition to the training community.
