Customized positive reinforcement training for Bay Area Dogs and Puppies

Does your dogs' behavior match any of these issues?

  • Jumping on people

  • Pulling on the leash

  • Nipping

  • Fearful

  • Not coming when called

  • Begging for food while you are eating

  • Peeing and pooping in the house

  • Barking at dogs

  • Barking at people

  • Not listening 

  • Destructive

  • Counter surfing for food

  • Reactive while in the car

By blending creativity and effective communication, I cultivate a positive environment for shaping your dog's behavior and resolving behavioral issues while preserving their inherent spirit.

My approach involves replacing unwanted behaviors with desirable ones, tailored to your preferences and considering the specific characteristics of the breed and individual animal.


Dogs are primarily motivated by reflexes, passions, and instincts. Through basic training, we establish a solid foundation and develop a shared language, imparting discipline, education, and the acquisition of alternative behaviors.

I emphasize discipline and behavior guidance throughout the complete training method, utilizing the power of positive reinforcement.

Within this comprehensive approach, your dog will learn a range of cues, either through auditory or visual signals, such as sit, down, heel, down stay, sit stay, come, place, ok, leave it, and sitting while stopping during loose leash walking.


Once we have established this foundation, we can progress to more advanced levels of discipline. This entails working with your dog off-leash, while maintaining a high level of control despite external stimuli and distractions.

Together, we will develop a harmonious relationship and enhance your ability to guide your dog's behavior effectively.

Staying Hydrated
I was fortunate to find Miri. I have her training my 6 month old Irish Setter. Finn loves her and is learning. He's a very energetic puppy. I'm learning more positive behavior.
