Welcome Friends,
I am a dog training professional based in the Ozarks.  In Springfield, MO I offer Basic and Advanced Obedience Classes at the Preferred Pet Salon at 4225 S. Charleston Ave (417)883-3647 and at the Pet Warehouse at 1717 W Kearney St (417)831-7386.   I also hold classes in Monett, MO at Preferred Pet Supply at 509 Dairy St. (417)235-3647.  I also offer private sessions for people that have specific issues or are unable to commit to a seven week training course.  These private sessions can be held anywhere; your home, parks, or pet store.  Whatever problem behaviors you need addressing I can help.
I obviously teach techniques to deal with individual behaviors, but more importantly I focus on how we communicate with our dogs.  The majority of the issues that people have with their pets arise from a lack of communication.  Dogs are a physical animal and people are a verbal creature.  When people are frustrated, angry, embarrassed, excited, or any other emotion we become more verbal often ending in shouting.  At this point communication breaks down and the desired results can not be achieved.  However, by teaching how to communicate appropriately with our bodies and taking control of everything that our dogs desire (treats, food, affection, walks, toys, boundaries, etc.,) then we can gain their undivided attention.
