Over the years Linda has finely crafted her training procedures by educating herself in current science based methodologies and positive rewards based training skills. She listens to the needs of the human requesting the service as well as to the animals she is tasked with training.

She is a Fear Free® Elite Certified and Low Stress Handling® Certified - Silver Professional, and is trained in PetTech® Pet Saver CPR and First Aid.

The training she offers has been especially important in helping leash-reactive or fear sensitive dogs gain a new sense of self-confidence in what to expect on a walk. It also helps them gain new social skills especially important for rescue dogs who may not have had these opportunities in the past. By building your dog's confidence it will help them learn to walk calmly and comfortably on a leash. This strengthens the human-animal bond between the pet and their human companion and makes daily walks less stressful. It's a win-win for all concerned!
