Service Dog Training

I use the Training Between the Ears (TBTE) methods in all my training.


TBTE was developed by Mark McCabe and is a system that solves behavioral problems with a number of techniques that removing conflict from the dog/human relationship and training.


The training focuses on changing the dog's perspective and state of mind as opposed to managing them with tools or obedience.


It is TBTE’s goal to help a dog to prefer to behave in ways that are better for their happiness, emotional wellness, physical wellness, and success in their world. If the dog chooses to behave in these ways, all the behavioral issues are gone as well.

This is particularly beneficial for those of us who need service dogs. Service dogs need to do their job without needing constant management and supervision from their handlers.

I work with people who are training their own psychiatric service dogs. Mainly I work with people who need help training their autism or c(PTSD) service dogs.

This is a group for service dog handlers that want a little help here and there, but are not ready to commit to training yet. It is also for service dog handlers who want to learn more about my training style before they commit to training.
