We believe that it’s important to have a large “tool box” when it comes to training dogs, because there is no “one-size fits all” approach to dog training. Some tools we use include: prong collars, slip leads, e-collars, treats, toys, long-lines, bark collars, treadmill, place cots, and crates. Tools are used to communicate and guide dogs to make good choices and to reach their full potential. The goal is to have a calm, relaxed, tuned-in, confident, happy, and obedient dog.
“With the help of Tina we were able to recognize the specific triggers that were causing Ginger’s anxiety. Tina taught us how to take control of the situation which would, in fact, ease Ginger’s anxiety. We are now able to go for walks without uncomfortable dog encounters, entertain guests without our dog jumping all over everyone and not have our dog begging for food or barking at us repeatedly.” – O’Loughlin Family: Ginger
