Focus on the possibilities.  Not the problems.

 Sure, he figured out how to open the bathroom door to sneak in and eat dirty tissues out of the garbage while you weren't looking, or she barks like mad and drags you down the sidewalk at the sight of another dog.  Perhaps he yips like the world is ending when the doorbell rings or there is a knock at the door.  I guess you could see any of those scenarios as a problem.  What do I see?  I see a brilliant dog who is just waiting for his or her potential as a brainiac to be unleashed.


Proven By Science

I keep up with the latest research to ensure that I am up to speed on the most effective and compassionate way to train an animal.  Research tells us that positive reinforcement is, indeed, the most effective training method.  This is what I base my positive reinforcement training strategies on – the proven data.  Would you rather your dog listen to you because he is afraid of the consequences, or because he actually wants to?  Here at Brainiacs, we believe training should be fun.

My Philosophy ›

A Decade of Experience

I have over ten years of continuous experience in working with animals.  Within that time I carried various positions and gained extensive knowledge in animal welfare, veterinary care, canine & feline communication, and animal behavior.  Let me share my knowledge and experience with you.  I don’t just want to train your dog to do what I want him to do.  I want to listen to what your dog needs and form a training program based on those individual needs.
