When I see a dog that jumps on people, I know that this is usually the tip of the iceberg of behavior issues. Dogs usually jump on people to get attention. If it is a consistent problem, this is a sure sign that one or more family members have been giving attention, which leads to the dog learning that jumping is a great way to get attention! Often jumping really isn't the problem, it is a family that simply doesn't know how to train their dog. Jumping is just a clear indication of this problem. 

I won't judge, criticize or "flunk" you or your dog, but instead will show you specific, logical strategies to address this and any other behavior problem that might be causing havoc in your home. 

I can help with:

  • Counter surfing
  • Leash pulling
  • Destruction
  • Barking
  • Aggression 
  • Boredom
  • Dog and Children Challenges
  • Feeling guilty that your dog isn't getting enough . . . 
  • And More!

The cool thing is, I think you will be surprised at how easy this stuff is. It does take time, and I don't want to give the impression that "easy" means simple. Dogs are complex, amazing animals that require and deserve time and attention. If you don't have enough time, I can only help so much and then your dog will go back to old patterns. But, if you can devote 15-30 minutes a day besides your normal walks and other activities with your dog, that usually makes a big difference. If your dog is a Border Collie, German Shepherd, Visla, Doberman, Labrador Retriever or other high-energy dog, 15-30 minutes might not be enough.

But, you might be surprised at how much you can learn and implement that will make your dog and your family happier! I have found that once people really and truly understand how to communicate with their dog it becomes more fun and doesn't seem like work. Let me show you how!
