I aim to shape teams into the best they can be by helping to develop and foster clear communication and trust. I believe all dogs are capable of great things if we find the appropriate reward for the task we are asking of them. Not every training technique is going to work for every team and I enjoy troubleshooting to find what will work best for the individual team that is in front of me!
