Need help with curbing some of your dog’s less-desirable behaviors and live in the Pittsburgh, PA area?

I offer in-home private dog training specifically designed for you and your dog. 

Jumping, leash-pulling, leash-biting, mouthing, barking, chewing… these are all things that can strain our relationships with our canine best friends. Many problem behaviors in dogs stem from a strained relationship with their family and my goal is to help improve your bond with your dog through reward based positive dog training.

Aaron and Lexi – Happy Clients

  • Basic obedience
  • Chewing
  • Mouthing
  • Jumping
  • Barking
  • Reactivity
  • Begging
  • Loose-leash walking
  • Off-leash behavior
  • Crate Training
  • Separation anxiety
  • And much more…

I do this because I LOVE dogs and want to help people to keep their furry friends in their homes and out of shelters!  Too many animals are surrendered to shelters because of “problem behaviors” that can be easily fixed with some guidance and patience.  I know first-hand the struggles that can come with owning a dog and how overwhelming it can be.  Let me help you and your dog work through the issues and improve your bond! To read more about my personal experience check out the “About Me” page.

What you can expect:

I will come to you for your first session and then based on the dog’s needs we will either work together in your home or move into real world situations (walks, reactivity, etc.).IMG_0816

The first session can range from an hour to an hour-and-a-half and is used to get to know both you and your dog.  We will discuss your dog’s history and issues and I will observe your dog’s behavior.  Once I have a clearer understanding of what both you and your dog need from me we will create a training/behavior modification plan to suit the needs of your dog.

We can then set up future training sessions if needed and discuss your dog’s progress via telephone and email.  I understand that there can be hiccups along the way and I am happy to talk you through them before we meet for our next session.
