Private Dog Training
We offer a wide variety of classes for puppy and adult dog training including obedience, manners, leash reactivity loose-leash walks, agility, playgroups and more!
Does your dog have a few annoying habits? Does he have a serious behavioral issue? Would you just like to learn basic obedience in the comfort of your own home? Whether it is an aggression issue, or just setting your new puppy/dog up for success, private consultations may be better for you.
We have limited boarding available. If you are struggling with training, do not have the time, or are going on vacation and want your dog/puppy to learn something, I offer a board and train program. Please make sure you have all of the required documentation available for your pet.
About Your Trainer Christi McKeen
I’ve spent the last 30+ years with dual careers in both the animal industry and human services, mostly as it relates to behavior. Through the years, I’ve continued my education with the help of some really terrific teachers, starting with the humans and animals that have struggled with behavioral issues. I have made it a point to follow experts in both fields, on a regular basis, as I feel it is important to keep my finger on the pulse as each field evolves. This has shaped my approach to start with the Least Intrusive, Minimally Aversive (LIMA) methods for both behavior and training.
About a decade ago, I was certified by The Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers (CCPDT) for their Certified Professional Dog Trainer-Knowledge Assessed (CPDT-KA). This year, shortly after it was offered, I also obtained my Certified Behavioral Consultant-Knowledge Assessed (CBCC-KA). Both of these certificates are now industry standards and often required for jobs in the field. However, they are fundamental, in that they test for basic knowledge, not expertise. I believe that each dog should be handled in the least intrusive, minimally aversive, which means I follow Dr. Susan Friedman’s Humane Hierarchy when addressing your dog’s issues.
