THE THINKING DOG at Restoring Balance Dog School
973 W Thatcher Rd,
There are many things that make our Restoring Balance Dog Training different : We consider each client individual, with specific needs, goals and many times a few issues that need clear solutions.
I have found in my 20+ years of working with all types of dogs and handlers with very different goals, is, expecting success or even gaining knowledge in a noisy, chaotic environment is like trying to understand your professor sitting at the far end of a football field during a game.
I believe that the way I was able to grasp information when I first began training, was to have the instructor completely dedicated to me and my dog. And during a lesson if I had a question (even if it was unrelated to what we were doing at the moment) I could ask it, and get an answer.
Over the years I myself and will include many of the wonderful dogs and handlers I have helped, the clarity and time taken to offer learning a new skill, pairing new skills together and/or just fix something that is wrong works best in a one on one setting.
My goal as teacher is to help you every time I see or speak to you and offer myself up for questions, discussions and clarity so that you will be better than you were, you can achieve your goals and look to me as a friend that is approachable and caring.
This is the way I will share my newest program; Sophisticated Puppy Foundation
