I'm happy to help with all obedience and training related questions. Although I work as a trainer solving behavioral issues, I do not feel comfortable providing advice or suggestions for aggression, resource guarding, phobias or other behavioral problems without evaluating a dog in person, those are areas where I believe a personal consultation is necessary.
I have been training dogs professionally since 2008. In 2009 I graduated with honors from Animal Behavior College and have also completed their Shelter Dog Program. I teach group classes and conduct in-home training sessions.
I am an ABCD-T (Animal Behavior College Dog Trainer) and am working towards my CPDT.

Although I never like to contradict a vet's advice, I would start with rationing water. He can have as much as he needs, just in a more controlled fashion. Put down a cup and if he gulps that he needs
