You're struggling with your dog and thinking...


"I don't know where to get started..."

Your dog is jumping, barking, pulling on the leash, growling at people or other dogs, having accidents in the house, and going nuts when guests come over.  Taking your dog on a walk feels like a challenging or impossibly large undertaking that you avoid them.

It's so confusing...

There are so many different ways to train a dog and you feel like you don't know which one is better than another or which trainer or method you should choose.  There are just so many options!

Will your training work for us...

Our training teaches your dog to relax and align your agendas together.  With these two things you and your dog want the same things together, taking the conflict out of your relationship.

Emotion + Thought = Behavior

Our training methods are primarily based on Training Between the Ears (TBTE) techniques and principles.  TBTE was developed by our colleague and mentor, Mark McCabe.

Training Between the Ears (TBTE)SM, is a system primarily for solving behavioral problems which involve a number of techniques that all support Mark McCabe's primary objective of removing conflict from relationships and training, and to the greatest degree possible not just changing the external behaviors of the dog but actually changing the internal states and perspectives of the dog that drive problem behaviors

It is TBTE's goal to help a dog to be able not just to choose not to do bad things or to follow commands of their owners, but to get them to prefer to behave in ways that are better for their happiness, emotional and physical wellness and success in their world.

"Nicole was a Godsend to our family. Our 14 month old yorkie poo was disobedient and had awful manners. Nicole is a miracle worker and takes her time demonstrating how to continue working on reinforcing the behavior with the owners to ensure continued success at home. It is clear she loves the animals she cares for, treats boarded dogs as her own, and is a superb dog trainer. This experience was every thing I hoped for and more than I expected."
