Training Philosophy

Choosing to bring a dog into your home, comes with the responsibility to care for that animal by providing food, shelter, love, and training.  The training component provides
a bridge of communication that will help the dog learn to live in a human world and allows you to understand and appreciate your dog.

As a Certified Training Partner of the Karen Pryor Academy for Animal Training and Behavior, Amy teaches and trains using force-free principles and techniques.  By seeking out and utilizing only positive, effective, dog-friendly methods she is able to help families and their pets succeed without adding aversive equipment or methods. 

Positive training techniques:
  • Help you and your dog communicate and succeed together

  • Are based on behavioral science making training more efficient

  • Help you and your dog develop a bond of trust and respect

  • Will not harm your dog physically or emotionally
    (no choke chains, prong collars, shock collars, etc.)

  • And they are fun and easy! 


So make training fun! Your dog will learn faster.
