Our Philosophy

I created Fresh Start Canine Behavior in 2019 as a resource for dog owners that are in desperate need of guidance. In our world today there is an endless supply of information about dog training online and all of that information is contradictory and all the information will have you feeling as though no matter what you are doing, you are doing something wrong. I am not here to lecture you, I am not here to shame you, I am here to help you. I am here to help you and your dog achieve the results that you need. I am a force-free trainer and what is most important to me is that both you and your dog feel safe and supported the entire process. I will look at your dog as an individual the behavior plans we come up with will always address things beyond control.

What does "Fresh start" mean?

While I adore my puppy clients, I feel most rewarded when working with my behavioral clients. I can't tell you how many times people have come to me with horror stories of what past "trainers" have instructed them to do with their dogs to "fix" their issues. Coming and working with me is a FRESH START. You can absolutely have a do-over with your dog. One of the amazing things about dogs is that they do forgive and will always think the world of you. We hear all the time about how our dogs should "respect us." What about the respect our dogs deserve? This is your chance to learn how to make your dog's life the best life they can have while also working towards the behavior goals you have for them.
