I teach people how to train and handle their dogs. Though this sounds simple, there is quite a bit more to this and you have probably figured this out because you’re now looking into dog training services. Identifying and achieving people’ goals is the focus of my work, but allow me to expand so you understand my experience and commitment to my craft.For over 30 years I have worked with hundreds of people and their dogs. It’s been my intention to help people acheive their individual goals, whether it is the basics sit/stay/come or high level competition. I understand dogs and their owners. I know what motivates dogs and how to get the best out of them.Some of my clients have me work with their family pets. Some of the dogs are young puppies who need to get started out correctly. Others have some rather serious problems that require a bit of work to straighten out.I have competed in Schutzhund at the highest levels, both nationally and internationally. I have owned/trained some of the finest working rottweilers of their time. I have been doing helper work since 1983 and am the training director for three Bay Area Schutzhund Clubs.
