You are not alone.
I can empathize with the joys, the frustrations, the rewards, and the challenges of sharing our lives with animals.
There’s no greater joy than having a loving animal companion by your side to make your cares melt away for a few moments.
But sometimes you may feel frustrated, confused, or hopeless about your pet's behavior. We are here to provide science-based information and empathetic, professional help as you and your pet learn together.
How can I help?
Get help with uniquely feline behaviors.
Learn how to appropriately socialize your kitten, mediate conflicts between cats, help shy or fearful cats, resolve litterbox issues and aggression, and more.
Whether you have one cat or eight, I can help.
Sometimes we don't understand why dogs behave the way they do. We will work together to better understand your dog's behaviors that you find challenging.
We can then set realistic goals and implement solutions to improve your life with your dog.
I specialize in working with shy, under-socialized, and fearful dogs.
Start off on the right paw with your puppy!
You will learn how to communicate clearly, kindly and effectively with your new puppy and understand what your puppy is telling you.
Private one-on-one sessions allow flexibility so we can focus on your puppy and your specific concerns.
