Training and assessments in your home, at Camp Merricks or on the Blue Ridge Rail Trail in Piney River.  Select the location and the number of one-hour sessions (to be conducted on separate days).  

Understanding your dog’s behavior and reactions to stimuli, as well as your role in that behavior are essential to choosing the type of training that your dog needs. I observe your dog in its own environment or here at Camp.  Better communication with your dog can improve the relationship between you. I help to better communicate with your dog so you get the results you want and your dog gets clear instructions, boundaries and expectations. 

Many issues with dogs are the result of not enough exercise or not enough social time with other canines.  We provide a safe space for dogs to run and work with each other, communicating, correcting, and learning appropriate canine etiquette.

Need help getting your dog to behave better while on hikes and walks?  Does your dog react to strollers, bicycles, other dogs, joggers, etc?   We offer individual training on the Blue Ridge Rail Trail in Piney River to address those specific issues.
