About the Training

I utilize positive reinforcement methods (clicker training). That is, when the behavior is offered that behavior is marked (click or word) and then reinforced (reward). Good behavior is reinforced and bad behavior is ignored (teach an alternate behavior). This training method is science based, effective as well as very enjoyable for both dog and pet parent.

Just want private in-home lessons. For private lessons customized plans are developed to address behavior problems.

The most remarkable consequences that I have witnessed from using the positive reinforcement training method is you can see the incredible bond that forms between pet parent and dog.

If you have any questions, concerns, or comments, please contact me (Vicki Keener). email: or call (757) 925-9458 or 540-533-7918
