Karen and Sophie Earn their CGC

SophieThis is Sophie of Suntides and her team – Gary, the evaluator from San Francisco, Jim, Karen, and Ericka, her trainer – who insisted that everything Sophie did was just right and it was – so now she is now Sophie of Suntides, AKC All American Dog, CGC.  (That’s “Canine Good Citizen” for the uninitiated) Hooray!

It was a great day. The sky was  blue and the weather balmy. The sharp-eyed evaluator was ready.  Sophie stepped up to the plate and hit it out of the park.  Cheers, photos and paperwork, were followed by a trip to Paso Robles where she paraded around the square and was greeted by accolades from adoring fans. “What a beautiful dog!” To which she responded with only a slight nod of her head from an appropriate distance – she is a Canine Good Citizen after all – lunch at a nice restaurant where the waiter brought her water in a shiny silver bowl (she didn’t spill a drop – she is a CGC after all) and then a nap while Karen and Jim talked with local artists and had frozen yogurt. It was a great day!

Thanks so much!

Lori and Sawyer Earn their NW2

Sawyer NW2They placed 4th overall, had a 6th place in the exterior search, and an 8th place in the every difficult interior search that only half the dogs passed that day! . Only 14% of the dogs that entered passed so it was a tough day.  So proud of this team! Screen Shot 2014-04-01 at 3.29.20 PM


Through training you will get a dog that is respectful, confident, and behaved. You can only achieve this level of training with an understanding of how dogs learn and communicate. These are stressed in all of my programs. Whether your training goals include basic manners, more advanced obedience, Rally-O, NoseWork or you would like to teach your dog some complex tricks, I can create a program that will produce results. My programs are especially important for dogs who are dealing with fear or aggression. These dogs need clarity of expectations and clear direction. With both Personal Training and Group Training programs available I can mold training to your needs and schedule. All breeds, mixes, and ages welcome.
