Assistance Dog Coaching

Sometimes, it is private “back-stage” work that is the most profound.

I believe in the power of individual relationships. On a virtual basis, I will work with you to meet your schedule and pace. Need to slow down or speed up? No problem.

This is the best way to address your needs, oodles of personal attention and expert coaching. The format is generally 6 sessions over 12 weeks. Clients work between sessions to apply learnings. A confidential and private, online call form serves up some prep-work before each session. Then, the live sessions are all about you, your work, and your world.

Clients walk away with a deeper understanding of how natural intelligence works and how to motivate performance on their team like never before.
