Dog Training

Training can be a fun and rewarding way to build a positive, healthy relationship with your pet. Whether you're looking to train a new pup or teach your adult dog some new tricks, choosing the right trainer can make a huge difference in how well you and your dog will succeed.

As a firm believer in the benefits of reward-based, non-aversive methods of training I've chosen to refer only those who teach using positive reinforcement without the use of "traditional" training tools like choke, prong or e-collars (shock collar).

Local Dog Rescue is an all-breed rescue dedicated to providing shelter & care to unwanted dogs as well as sanctuary for senior and unadoptable dogs. Want to help us out? Dog food, toys, cleaning supplies, blankets, and of course monetary donations are always greatly appreciated.
