    Custom Tailored Dog Training Approach

    To Every Pet

    Fast, Friendly Dog Training

    We are so confident that you will love our results that we guarantee it!

    Whether you’re wrangling a new puppy, an unruly adolescent, or learning that you can teach an old dog new tricks, I can teach you how to get your dog to respond. Is he too aggressive? A little scared? Does she not listen to you? Is this your first dog, or maybe your first dog of this breed? Every dog has his own personality and needs. Classes are OK for getting some of the basics down, but for real training that meets your needs and your dog’s needs, one-on-one time is needed–and that’s what I do.

    Good behavior and manners are skills that even your dog can learn with practice – and learned much faster with the personal attention of a friendly, experienced behavior consultant and trainer. My methods will have your dog happily listening to every command, even around distractions, and you don’t need to be a skilled trainer yourself. That’s what I’m for!

    My Promise To You!

    I appreciate the confidence and trust owners place in me and I will never knowingly disappoint you.

    • When you and your dog enroll in an obedience class, I make a lifetime commitment to your desire that he become an enjoyable pet. Within the confines of the class setting, I will do whatever it takes, for as long as it takes, to achieve this.

    • You receive unlimited lessons to get your dog trained the way you want. All of the programs include a certain number of lessons as a MINIMUM. So if it takes more lessons to train your dog and your family, there is no extra charge.

    That’s the guarantee. It’s simple, straightforward and I mean it. My reputation depends on your success with your dog.

    What Clients Say

    Customer Reviews

    Our 17 month old German Shepherd was out of control. He jumped on people, pulled like crazy on his leash, and would ignore any commands we gave him. After spending a month with Cathy he is now very well behaved. Cathy is a wonderful trainer and we highly recommend her.



    Great experience! Cathy is great with both the dogs and us, it’s amazing to see the transformation in our pups!!!!


    Chris Ludwig

    Cathy has been an excellent trainer for our dog and for us! She knows how a dog thinks and is able to help us understand how to communicate with our pet. We’ve been very pleased with the results of her training.
