Evidence-based, Humane Training

Philosophy

I use humane, evidence based methods to effectively train your dog. I believe that training should be enjoyable for you both.

About Linda

I’m Linda and for the past 11 years I’ve been teaching and training rescue puppies and dogs and supporting and coaching their wonderful adopters. I use gentle, science-based, efficient, force free methods to help you and your dog build a beautiful  partnership with each other.  

I teach guardians how to motivate their dogs to be willing and happy participants in the training process with positive rewards and clear, incremental training plans designed to address each team’s training goals.
