My Story

I started Puppy Love back in 2001. I believed there was and still is a great need for positive, educated, interactive training to replace the dominance-based approach. My mission is to provide rewarding and enjoyable experiences for pets and people alike, and to educate the public about modern dog training methods which employ positive association and reinforcement- not the use of force or fear.


While many dog trainers continue using methods that are based on outdated, debunked dominance theory, Puppy Love’s training techniques are consistent with¬†current research findings in canine learning and cognition, resulting in the most effective methods for teaching dogs new skills and desired behaviors. Clients can see immediate improvement in their dogs’ behavior using simple and sensible techniques.
