Welcome to Love. Trust. Teach. My name is Denise and my mission is to help pets train people. I know a lot of pets with people problems and those pets need help teaching their people how to better communicate. Whether it’s potty training a new puppy, getting your cat off the counter, or reconditioning an aggressive or fearful dog, I’m here to help you with private pet training. I won’t train your pet for you, but I will coach you through the process. If you already have a loving bond, I will help you build trust and guide you through the art of teaching.

Created to meet the needs of problem pets and frustrated humans in a familiar and comfortable environment, private pet training can address a variety of challenges. Whether it’s personal time constraints or a specific pet behavior problem, we work together to design a program and schedule that fits your needs.

“Denise has tremendous patience. My dog is nothing if not challenging and Denise is wonderful with her.” –Jenni

Developed over the years and through my experience with many animals, including my own pets, “Tools-not-Rules” has become my slogan of choice. Animals are as individual and unique as their owners; the techniques that meet one animal’s needs may not meet those of another, making private pet training very beneficial.

My New Best Friend is the ultimate tool for preparing and introducing the family dog to a new baby. The book includes written sections outlining the keys to success and features a series of escalating sound tracks recorded from real babies.

“She was so good to my son and made this experience lots of fun for him…helps us to achieve the best relationship possible with our pet.” -Sarah

From the privacy of your own home to on-the-go adventures, I can help you get the very best from your furry friends. Let me teach you the basics of positive reinforcement and show you how easy training can be.
