About Us

We Improve Quality of Life

Family Dog Training brings affordable family dog obedience training and behavior consulting services right to your home. Our training methods are rewards based and humane–simple to learn and use, and fit easily into family life.

Whether you’re wrangling a new puppy, an unruly adolescent, or learning that you can teach an old dog new tricks, our affordable, private pet obedience training programs are for you.

I have a very high success rate in helping Treasure Coast dog owners with advanced problem behaviors such as aggression and anxiety. Fearful, aggressive dogs become more relaxed and pushy dogs learn that the life is far more enjoyable when they cooperate with their owners. And I am equally successful with dogs that fall anywhere between those two extremes.

I truly love dogs and want the best for them and their owners. Your pet is precious to you and I appreciate your trust by allowing me to train your dog. I will do whatever it takes, within the confines of the class setting, to help your dog become an pet and I will never knowingly disappoint you.

Your Pet Deserves The Best

When looking at different dog trainer’s websites, you’ll see them talking about the number of commands they teach: 8 Commands, 14 Commands, Unlimited Commands! That’s because dog trainers traditionally focus on teaching dogs commands like sit, stay, lie down, come, and walking on leash. As if 14 commands is better than 8.

While commands are important things for dogs to know, they may not be helpful to you in the long run. What is important, is how your dog behaves. No one ever took their dog to the shelter because the dog didn’t know how to “sit.” But millions of dogs are surrendered for biting the hand that feeds them, chewing the furniture, barking, soiling in the house…..

If you asked a hundred dog owners “does your dog know how to sit?” most of them would say, “yes.” Almost every dog would sit if they were alone in the kitchen and the owner held up a bowlful of food, but how many dogs would sit when visitors are arriving and two other dogs are leaping and barking at the door? The right question isn’t does your dog “know” the sit signal, its how reliable is his response under a variety of circumstances.

The purpose of training is not just about obedience commands, but correcting behavior issues, things like barking, lunging, jumping, and unruliness.

There is no “one size fits all” solutions in behavior modification and problem solving, so I work with each dog individually, give you practical, clear cut solutions to bring about positive change,  and work with you every step of the way.
