I have worked with dogs professionally for 15 years in a doggie daycare facility and the veterinarian field. After saying goodbye to my 3 animals within 15 months, I decided to do something positive for other people's animals.
After completing an internship with The Balanced Dog, LLC in Fulks Run Virginia, I opened Peace of Mind Dog Training, LLC.
I also attended a shadow program in 2021 with internationally known dog trainer, Sean O’Shea, owner of The good dog training and rehabilitation.
My main goal is helping dogs and their humans better understand each other so they can live harmoniously together. Perhaps your dog jumps all over you and your company when they come into your home. Maybe they pull you in every direction on a walk or misbehave in public. I will teach you how to change the behavior. My purpose is to give you both a chance to live better together.
My training is a balanced method incorporating positive reinforcement for the behavior we desire and correction for unwanted behavior. Since you are the one who is your dogs leader, your dedication is the most important part. Together we will create the relationship you have always desired.
Hours: Monday -Saturday 8am-5pm

How Was Your Experience?
1) Can I teach my older dog better
manners? Yes you can! With consistency and patience we can change unwanted behavior 2) Is it too late to help my aggressive dog? A truly aggressive dog may need rehabilitation with our board and train program. 3) I’ve only used positive training and I don’t want to hurt my dog. A huge misconception is that discipline equals abuse. That is 100% wrong when you understand and use correction in the right way. We need to communicate with them so they know what is acceptable and what is not. 4) How will I be able to handle my dog when you’re done with a board and train? We will meet up and have a group session so you know what to do going forward. Also, a follow up session is included with this program to ensure success.
