Work with Dawn

I offer private training sessions, small group workshops, seminars and demonstrations.

Private sessions are conducted in your home by appointment only and are typically one hour in length. Private sessions can help solve specific behavior issues*, help a newly adopted pet adapt to his/her new home, support veterinary care for a variety of medical issues**, or simply get your new puppy off to a good start.

Workshops and seminars can be designed to focus on your specific interests or needs:

Workshops are generally limited to a smaller group of participants (fifteen or fewer) and their dogs and provide opportunity for hands-on practice time.

Seminars generally consists of lecture and demonstrations and allows for more participants to attend. Please contact me for information on how to host an event in your area.

In my teaching, I focus on recognizing and reducing stress in your pet, improving communication and trust, and building your pet’s confidence. The Tellington TTouch® Training Method is the basis for my work. Most of my services are designed for dogs, however, I do offer private training sessions for other pets as well.

I am a Level 2 Reiki Practitioner and also offer Reiki treatments for your pets.
