"Don't make the mistake of treating your dogs like humans, or 
 they will treat you like dogs."

Patience, Communication, Structure, Discipline and reinforcement. 

Every animal has a unique personality and disposition. Because of this, every animal needs to be trained differently.  Your rescued Labrador and your neighbors Chihuahua mix probably have different learning styles and needs just as two children who have all the potential in the world may need to have it coaxed out of them in different ways.  What I am saying is that we as well as our dogs all value and appreciate personalized service that is tailor made to the individual situations and circumstances.  Some dogs are very sensitive, some are not.  Your dog may have a high prey drive while another could care less. 

Whether you're starting out with a new puppy, adopting a rescue, integrating a new dog into your family, seeking training for an adult dog or looking for additional help with exercising your dog, you have found a great resource in OC Canine Coaching.  

I want everyone who calls me for help to enjoy a simple and understandable relationship with their dog(s), very much like I feel I have with my own little pack.   There are very clear and manageable ways to achieve this and while it does take work, I can't imagine anything more rewarding.  I think of my dogs as my children and just like silly little forever 2 year old children, they need consistent guidance and structure.  I focus strongly on positive reinforcement which has thankfully become very popular these days and most often will be found with a clicker and treats on my side.  Having said that, I consider myself an extremely balanced trainer.  This means I understand and use several other methods, all which work together with proper, deliberate communication and my core positive training methods.

On top of traditional training I can guide you through achieving a healthier dog and better behaved dog through my education in nutrition and health maintenance.  Just like people, what you put in is what you get out.  Ask me why my dogs don't have hot spots, dental problems, fleas,
and are always an ideal weight.
