"He checked in frequently between sessions, obviously cared about our dog (and us), and provided great feedback and direction. He helped us learn how to train our dog ourselves." - Vic S.

Why choose a CCPDT-accredited trainer?
About the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers
Veterinarians generally prefer to refer patients to trainers who have attained the CPDT-KA (knowledge assessed) distinction. This nationally-recognized certification requires years of experience; references from veterinarians, colleagues and clients; and a formal examination to confirm expertise and proficiency in dog learning theory, canine husbandry, and ethology—the scientific study of animal behavior.
Parks and preserves for exercising your dog au naturale
One bonus of dog training is that a well-trained mutt enjoys more freedom in off-leash settings. I have researched and hiked many gorgeous Bay Area beaches, parks and preserves that allow well-trained dogs off-leash. So take a hike with your best friend while enjoying the Bay Area’s ample natural beauty.
I am currently residing in Santa Cruz during the week and at my San Francisco/Diamond Heights location on weekends. I have limited availability for client appointments at this time, but respond to all inquiries.
Please complete the following form with as much information as possible, including details about your dog's breed, gender, age, when you adopted, past training and specific behavior problems.
If I am unable to work with you, I will do my best to refer you to a qualified trainer or veterinary behaviorist.
For severe aggression and behavior issues, contact the Veterinary Behavior Department at UC Davis.
