What to Expect with Me
I Promise To
  • Serve as your trusted adviser
  • Say what's needed, even if it's not what you want to hear
  • Tell you if we can't go further
  • Refer to someone better if needed 
  • Tailor to your lifestyle and goals, but within your pets' abilities
  • Put the emotional and physical well-being of humans and pets first and human desires come after
No Judgement
  • Never feel judged about your pet, lifestyle, housekeeping, or collection of 2000 unicorns
  • If you don't care if your dog's on the table, then I don't care either! (unless it pertains to the training at hand)
  • Our sessions are a safe place and your information is confidential
Fun
  • I'm known for my humor
  • Lack of laughter is very rare
  • Everyone should have fun, especially pets

Packs
Rather than viewing a wolf pack as a group of animals organized with a “top dog” that fought its way to the top, or a male-female pair of such aggressive wolves, science has come to understand that most wolf packs are merely family groups formed exactly the same way as human families are formed.
