HAPPY PETS = HAPPY PEOPLE!

I specialize in helping pets become calm, comfortable and confident.

Does Your Pet Have one (or more!) of the Following Problems?

Pulling on the leash on walks.

Barking at everything.

Problems riding in the car.

Afraid of the vet or groomer.

Reactive with other animals.

Fearful of loud noises.

Separation anxiety.

Jumping on visitors.

Nervous, anxious, hyperactive.

I can help you address these problems with training tools and techniques that are positive, force-free and respectful.

No matter how much we love and care for our pets, living in our human world can be very stressful for them.

Our pets are a different species from us and as such, have a different language, different social cues, social structure and social norms. The stress of trying to understand how to live with us can cause anxiety and fear and lead to behavior and health issues.

My goal is to help the animals feel safe by meeting them where they are, building trust and working with them in a cooperative manner, using only those training tools and techniques that are positive, force-free and respectful.

I founded the Pawsitive Companion in 2003 and practice positive, force-free training techniques based on clear communication, mutual trust and respect for your animal companion and have been successful in addressing these and other pet behavior and health issues.
