***COVID 19 UPDATE***
I am fully vaccinated!
We can take precautions according to your comfort level. I can work outside or in with a mask and maintain distance.
Or if you prefer, I am offering online options now as well.
Welcome! Tess (pictured here) and I are excited to have you visit!
Training is an investment into your life with your dog. I understand how important and valuable a well behaved and happy dog is. I will honor your investment and help you achieve your goals, whether that looks like a calm and safe family member or a working companion to help you excel in your profession or passion! I have close to 20 years of education, real life experience, and practical work in family pet, working companion, and shelter/rescue pet training - my experiences include rehabilitation of feral/aggressive/fearful behavior, and practical work or trialing in herding, tracking, hunting, and agility.
I reside in Lander, WY but I offer services statewide, and regionally. Travel fees may apply to outlying and Riverton areas. Video or phone consultation and online options are also available.

The nitty gritty...
All services must be paid for in full at beginning of first appointment unless payment arrangements are worked out prior to first appointment.
After the 3rd consecutive missed or cancelled appointment a $20 fee will be added to each remaining appointment (exceptions do apply!)

Read and watch videos of Kinnear, a feral dog who found friendship and family with a herd of longhorn cattle. His story is evolving, and while he is not currently with "his" herd, he is learning how to make new friends in a new life.

Animal Shelters, Rescues, and Fosters
When I first became a certified dog trainer, I lived in a small community and there were several "free" trainers, not certified, who offered their services to the public, free of charge, their experience based on years training their own dogs to compete in various sports or with clubs. I reached out to local shelters and rescues for "clients" and eventually began my own rescue.
I understand the challenges rescues and shelters face. Reach out to me! My best clients are shelters and rescues!
