Consumer protection warning:

The animal training industry is currently unregulated. Literally, anyone can call themselves an animal trainer. This means that training is often at best ineffective or inefficient, and at worst, detrimental & dangerous. Buyer beware.

Personalized, private animal behaviour change services

Custom behaviour change plans. Effective & efficient training. Exceptional coaching & support.

Yes, I'll even train your animal for you!

Services can be done in person, virtually, or a mix of both. I can train your animal for you then show you how to maintain the behaviours, coach you through training behaviours yourself, or a mix of both.
