My Approach to Dog Training

Over the past 30 years I’ve been a certified dog trainer, dedicated to helping dogs succeed using positive training techniques. Each one of my four-legged students is special and unique and for that reason, a “one-size-fits-all” dog training approach simply wouldn’t be effective.  That’s why my small group classes are geared towards personal, individualized training that focuses on the specific needs of each puppy and their family.

Canine Behavior Training

All dogs have instinctive behaviors that are unacceptable to us as pet parents – things such as…

    • Nipping and chewing
    • Excessive barking
    • House breaking
    • Jumping
    • Leash pulling
    • Aggression toward people and/or other dogs
    • And much more…

So whether you are starting out with a new puppy or are having behavior issues with an adult dog that has been in your family for years, I can teach you how to resolve these challenges in order to create a harmonious home life for all of you.

Communication

Learning how to effectively communicate with your canine companion is key to helping your dog succeed. By learning to speak your dog’s language, you will be more successful in teaching basic commands, obedience and setting boundaries.

"We first met Peggy when we had her come to our home for a personal training session. Our puggle puppy, Sadie, was wild! Peggy showed us how to calm her down and get her into a submissive position. We continued with her group puppy class for 6 weeks. Her training is so positive! Her love for dogs is very evident, as is her knowledge of dog training. Sadie loves hiking with Peggy's shelties and staying at Camp Seiler when we are away."

"Peggy is an amazing trainer! We met her for the first time over two years ago and she has been such a blessing to us. We brought multiple dogs to her all with very different temperaments and she was able to help us work with each of them and meet their various needs. Not only have our dogs improved since we started working with Peggy, but we have improved as dog owners. Training skills and techniques that we never learned before have become second nature to us. We feel comfortable helping our dogs succeed in many different environments. Peggy also helped us prepare our dogs for the arrival of a new baby. They have been great with her!"

"After adopting Suka from a rescue that almost turned him away due to his severe behavioral issues, I was overwhelmed. Peggy provided me with much needed encouragement and excellent guidance to help Suka overcome his extreme fear issues. Suka LOVES Peggy!"

"I knew when I got Zipper he had a strong alpha mind with a defiant personality that would need some consistent training. Peggy has provided me the skills and training tactics that has helped Zipper grow into a playful and respectful grown puppy!! She has also helped me work with Oakley to help him overcome is lack of confidence and fear. Oakley is exuding confidence now and is less fearful of everyday noises!! I can't say how many compliments I receive on how well behaved my pups are - thank you Peggy!"

As we planned for the arrival of our new puppy, Molly, a miniature Labradoodle, we envied our friends who had well trained dogs who are a pleasure to be around. Lessons like these do not come easy and training never stops. The training that Peggy provides gives Molly the confidence to be successful when interacting with people and four-legged friends. It also gives us the confidence to know that Molly can behave appropriately in new situations. Thanks to training, Molly now walks under control, plays well with other dogs, has learned many tricks, and responds to numerous commands. Thank you Peggy! We could not have done it without your help and support!
