Claire works with all breeds. Her training methodology is based on the science of positive reinforcement training which is effective and proven to work by studies of peer reviewed research in the field of animal behavior. Her reward based method for training and solving behavior problems is focused on building better relationships between dogs and their humans. She strives to have each owner realize their dream of delightful dog ownership. “The best part of teaching and training is watching the relationship develop between a dog and their owner.” Her goal is to see a dog that is happy, enthusiastic, and loves to be part of the team.
Before working with dogs full time, Claire worked in Human Resources which built a solid insight of working with people and problem solving. This combination along with living and competing with reactive dogs has given Claire the ability to work with people and their canine companions in a compassionate, patient, and intuitive way.
Claire believes that learning is never ending and consistently attends seminars on animal learning and behavior. Her goal is to educate the public about the benefits of a having a great relationship with your canine companion.
