Dog training without relationship is nothing.
There are 2 solutions:
1- Fix the problem
2- Fix the relationship
"Usually fixing the relationship will fix the problem!"
"I provide methods and techniques that will help you achieve a successful relationship with your dog based on mutual respect and mindful interactions. My aim is to produce a dog willing to be your partner, eager to learn, and happy to work whether you want to engage in obedience and behavior modification, service or therapy activities, rally, agility, nose work, or just companionship.
I am striving to offer you what will help you the most, from basic obedience to behavior modification such as fear, reactivity, lack of confidence, chewing, barking and more."
