My personal mission is to become your dog's personal family trainer. I believe training is a lifetime endeavor, there is always something more your dog can learn, and I want to be the guidance you and your dog can count on. I offer a unique niche to the pet dog world in teaching and guiding detection/scent dogs and focusing on training good public manners. It is our responsibility as a society to better train our companions to be more sociable and well-mannered to the public. Allow me to show you and your dog the way to a better training relationship and in effect a happier training family.
I have studied under many national trainers who are considered masters in areas such as detection, obedience, behavior modification, and detection/patrol dogs. I was a columnist for The Citizen newspaper and brought my insight through Pup Pointers each month to highlight my mission and guidance. I believe, in light of many news and media outlets reporting on dog aggression and bites, that it is our responsibility as a society to better train our companions to be more well-mannered in public.
My facility here at the Fingerlakes Mall is unique and amazing in many dog training aspects. This facility allows us to take your lesson from sterile one-on-one learning to literally opening up the door and taking things out in public to the mall. The building affords many unique opportunities to environmental socialization and training that include allowing your dog to train around noise distractions, as well as meeting strangers to allow them to learn to greet new people, floor surface changes and commotion throughout the mall. Bass Pro Shops offers so many training opportunities in itself, from boarding a boat to climbing rocks, and ignoring scent distractions of hunting bait and taxidermy animals. Since mall management has made the entire mall (except the food court) dog friendly, the possibilities are endless on conditioning your dog to be more well-mannered in public. Don't miss out on such a wonderful opportunity to train your dog for better things.
