Working With Specialists:

I can work privately with you, or in conjunction with your physical or mental health professional. Working as a team, all of us together can focus the training for you and your dog for the best outcome.

I am happy to work with your dogs’ veterinarian or veterinary behaviorist for special issues.

Dog Selection Assistance:

Dog and puppy selection from shelters or breeders for pet or other functions: I have a wide range of connections who can guide me to top breeders who are producing the right type of dog for your purposes.

Temperament and Suitability Evaluations: Hearing Dog, Medical Detection, Emotional Support Animal, PTSD, Mobility, and Animal-Assisted Therapy are all roles that some dogs may be suited to. I start by evaluating your dog honestly and thoroughly. If your own dog is not suitable, my connections make it possible to help you find a dog that will fill the role with talent and joy. I have temperament tested over 20,000 dogs in shelters and from breeders, and would be happy to help you locate a great pet or working partner.
