I will work with you to diagnose and correct your animal's behavior issues, and I will improve the bond between you and your pet or animal. I understand that training an animal also requires teaching the human as well, and building the relationship there, so that both are prepared to face future challenges successfully. I can also assist in diagnosing and correcting animal-to-animal interactions. I am highly skilled animal behaviorist and trainer and will interpret your specific animal's problems and apply proven positive reinforcement methods to correct behavioral problems.
I can even help you train your cat to use the toilet!
I have in-depth experience training a variety of animals, from domestic to exotic. I've worked with pets and horses for 15+ years, and I also have extensive experience with exotic and aquatic animals such as elephants, tigers, and dolphins.
