Start Where You Are

Due to Covid-19 we have very limited private lessons available. Please call for an appointment or more information.

I customize a training plan for you and your critters. These individualized private lessons take place in your home, your community—where you need it. Designed to meet YOUR needs, not the needs of an entire class.  

My approach to training all animals is based on compassion, trust, clear communication, scientific principles, decades of experience, and a balance of positive and negatives—the full spectrum of operant conditioning.

I’ll guide you and your dog or cat to a better understanding of each other, as well as learning many new skills and eliminating unwanted behavior. Lessons are fun, easy and clear. I still teach the word “NO’, but never unfairly.

I offer:

Puppy Primer
Basic Training
Clicker Training
Behavior Analysis

Dog Sports
Pet Assisted Therapy
Problem Solving
Reactive Dogs and Aggression Management
Basic Obedience Training
Occasional Small Group Classes
Feline Basics and Management
In Home Training and Day Training

Get in touch with Critters and I’ll help you and your critter get the most out of life together.

Local lessons in the Forrest Grove area or where client travels to me are $60/hour.

Lessons that require me to travel are $80 and up depending on the distance.
