Pet Dog Assessment
Assistance Dog Assessment
I can assess your puppy or dog and advise if they would be better suited as a pet or working dog.
I offer a number of different types of dog training: Task Training, Detection Training, Pet Dog Ambassador.
Have your dog certified as an accredited assistance dog.
I practice science based, force-free training. This means:
- NO FEAR
- NO PHYSICAL FORCE
As a member of the Pet Professional Guild, I am guided by their values:
"The Pet Professional Guild (PPG) believes pets have an intrinsic right to be treated humanely, to have each of their individual needs met, and to live in safe, enriched environments free from force, pain and fear. PPG holds that effective training and care procedures form the foundation for a pet's healthy socialization, and help prevent behavior problems. As such, the general pet-owning public needs to be educated by competent and qualified specialist organizations and associations to ensure their pets live in nurturing and stable environments, and that only non-aversive training and pet care equipment is used. In this cyber-driven world, where information may not always be accurate or scientifically sound, PPG provides a platform for promoting said education, resources, equipment, ideas, methods and techniques that owners and pet professionals can trust to reflect its force-free philosophy."
