Did You Know That Anyone Can Claim To Be a Dog Trainer?

Would you want to go to a doctor who didn’t stay current with new information in the medical field? I wouldn’t! And I think the same educational certification standards should apply to dog trainers.

My Training Methods

  • I use force-free, humane training techniques
  • No harsh, aversive methods that will hurt your dog
  • My training methods are science-based in Animal Learning Theory
  • Your dog’s personality and motivational preferences are used to help your dog succeed
  • Your schedule and lifestyle patterns discussed before we implement a plan
Your Life with Your Dog is Important. Please Don’t Wait Another Day. If you live in Salem Oregon, or the surrounding areas, your dog is worth a quick phone call or email. Call me at 503-931-9535 or send an email.

Continuing Education Attended:

Dog training and dog behavior is a constantly changing field of study. At Lucky Leash, continuing education in the dog training and dog behavior field is critical to understanding the dog. Here is a continually updated list of educational studies, seminars, and workshops that I have attended. Please check back; I am always learning more so that I can help more owners and their dogs!
