The SECRET to a good, calm dog.

In-home consults, virtual consults, board-and-train options available.
> Are you tired of pulling, jumping, nipping, whining, and barking?
> Do you struggle to get your dog to listen, even if you use force or bribe with food?
> Does your dog cause you more stress than you bargained for?
> Do you sometimes wonder why you even HAVE a dog?

What would it be like to have a calm, quiet, and loyal dog, who looks at you with trust and respect?

About the Method

Dog with cocked head with the thought bubble, wondering why he should listen to you his owner

You want your dog to listen to you. But WHY should he? Because he's being bribed with food? Because he is afraid of force or punishment? No, you want your dog to listen to you because you've won his mind and his heart. Because you are the leader that he loves, trusts, and respects.

How do you win the love, trust, and respect of your dog? How do you show the dog that you're the leader? I'll teach you to shift the way you handle your dog in your everyday routine and care of your dog, so that you can give him the message that you are fit to be his leader. It's not about the tricks you can get him to do; it's about the relationship you will forge with him.

On this solid foundation of relationship, you can easily teach your dog all kinds of life skills such as how to sit and stay and how to walk calmly on a loose leash. Your dog will be calmer, happier, and more focused when you are being with him in this new way.

"Elaine is very personable and modelled what she was teaching with my dog. She helped with practical solutions as well as a new overall strategy and understanding of (dog) behaviour to stop Zilli's jumping and improve her impulse control."

Hi, I'm Elaine!

I'm a Professional Dog Trainer and Behaviourist.

Like you, I'm a dog and animal nut. I've been around dogs my entire life and I started training them more than 15 years ago. While tricks and obedience might seem pretty cool, I've always been more interested in having a solid relationship with a good, calm dog. That's why I became a certified dog trainer.

 Here's Milo, my German Shepherd/Norwegian Elkhound cross. He truly is a good, calm dog.

My career didn't start with dogs. I have a background in nursing, life coaching, and stress management for humans. While transitioning to dog training seems like a big change, it's not. All dog behavioural issues arise from stress in the dog, so stress management is still a priority! The most important part of training dogs is educating you, the owner. Once you have the tools you need, you also can have a good, calm dog.
