WHAT MAKES ME DIFFERENT:  I am not just a dog trainer, I am an animal trainer that has multiple techniques to utilize for any situation. EATM was an intense daily/nightly 2 year 7 day a week program that gave me the skills to work with many temperaments and created in me a well rounded trainer.I believe in the science of training, with force free methods.My kennel experience has offered me the ability to access a dog and help them achieve a healthier ego for a better quality of life which makes for a  better family member.  I am also a local mom, school volunteer,and cub scout leader,  so I know that people wear alot of hats! That is why I  am offering dog walks for local Petalumians. A busy family can always use a hand.
