Welcome to People Training For Dogs(sm)


PEOPLE TRAINING FOR DOGS(sm) has been dedicated to providing quality instruction for dog owners for over thirty years.  In addition to small group classes for obedience training,  I also offer private lessons  and behavior counseling.

The PEOPLE TRAINING FOR DOGS philosophy is a commitment to teaching people how to raise and train their dogs humanely and successfully, through flexible, fun & positive training techniques.  It is an educational environment where people can experience the joy of dog ownership through training. PEOPLE TRAINING FOR DOGS is a mind, body & soul approach. I passionately believe all dogs & their owners benefit from learning to communicate through the structure of formal training; and that in this process, they will learn how to keep their dogs healthy, safe & happy.

“It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it’s the journey that matters, in the end.” (Ernest Hemingway)


“I pray you who own me, let me continue to live close to nature. Know that: I love to run beneath the sun, the moon, and the stars; I need to feel the storm winds around me, and the touch of rain, hail, sleet and snow; I need to splash in streams and brooks, and swim in ponds, lakes, rivers, and the seas; I need to be allowed to retain my kinship with Nature.”
