North County Dog Training Profile
I have been involved with training dogs since the seventies and have always used positive reinforcement methods. I have rescued numerous animals off the streets including dogs, cats, birds and even reptiles. I rehabilitated the animals both physically and emotionally before finding them new forever homes. Because of my interaction with the dogs I rescued, I became very familiar with all sorts of types of fear issues, anxiety issues and aggression issues which I needed to correct. Through positive reinforcement and counter-conditioning, we worked through the issues and the dogs went to their forever homes as happy, healthy, safe companions.
I believe a trainer can never know enough so I am constantly taking continuing education courses, watching webinars, reading and researching. It is important to me that I provide you and your dog with a fun, healthy and rewarding training experience.
