Teri incorporates several philosophies, techniques and understandings to cumulatively add up to the idea of positive training. Teri has a deep understanding of your dog, and has been training furry ones for years.
Teri utilizes various types of positive and effective methodologies based on your pup's special needs. You no longer need to worry about ineffective means, or temporary fixes - and you and your loved pup can finally bond!
My training methods are positive, humane and science-based. I am able to work with all breeds of dogs. I have good people skills and have had many repeat clients clients over the years. Most of my closest friends are former clients. I truly love teaching clients to train their dogs!
I have been a professional dog trainer since 1999 when I attended Purdue University’s DOGS course. I have worked as an assistant in Veterinary Medicine from 1979 to 2010. I taught puppy kindergarten classes for 10 years and offered in-home private training. I left the veterinary clinic and worked for a boarding kennel where I also taught adult and puppy classes. In Ohio I went to veterinary clinics and talked about my business (most of my referrals were from veterinary clinics and former clients). I am also a reiki practitioner and would like to have a practice working with client’s pets.

Leadership is lifting a person’s vision to high sights, the raising of a person’s performance to a higher standard, the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations.
It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership.
We work with clients and pets to provide an individualized experience to suit each animal's needs. We find the the ideal training methods to keep your dog happy and obedient. Our methods are proven to effectively last.
The use of positive reinforcement methods when teaching your dog has been universally endorsed by the behavioral scientific community at large as the most effective, long-lasting, humane and safest method in dog training.
We love Sequim and the surrounding areas! Please inquire if you are from other areas and would like my services. We can talk about options.
We learn to truly understand how your pup perceives the world around him, but to do this effectively you must first learn his language and appreciate his sensory experience. Senses are closely linked to emotions, and emotions drive behavior.
We would never use choke collars, electric fences or collars, nor do we recommend them! The leashes and collars we used are designed for efficiency and comfort for your dog - we train him in a positive way!
We would love to hear from you!
Please send any questions, comments, or concerns you have – we would love to answer them for you!
We hope to meet your furry loved one soon!
