Dog training / new dog consultation
I will help you with any dog training concerns you may have via Google Hangouts, FaceTime, or Skype. While this isn't the ideal way to train your dog, it's a good way to get an idea of how and where to start the process.
Maybe you're trying to decide on the right dog for you. Maybe you found the perfect dog, but you don't know quite where to start with training. Or maybe your dog has a little problem that you just can't figure out. Does she/he pull a lot on the leash? Does she/he bark at everything? Does she/he growl when another person or dog gets too close to you? Maybe there's something else that's been bothering you. Let's talk. Maybe I can help.
Please remember that this is not a substitute for working with a good trainer. This is just somewhere to start. And please feel free to check out my website for more information. You can also ask me any questions you have via email, twitter (@Dogs_BestFriend #DBFask), or my Facebook page (@CanineGoverness).
Training & Qualifications
My personal service dog and I were trained by the highly experienced dog trainer, Glenn Martyn (martyncaninebehavior.com). And I continue to learn from him now. I have been a dog walker in San Francisco's Castro neighborhood for more than 6 years (caninegoverness.com). I have loved animals my whole life and I would love to pass on the knowledge and skills that I have picked up along the way.
Availability & Preferences
I'm free most weekday mornings. But let me know what time works for you and I'll check my calendar.
