I am available to clubs and organizations to do a foundation training seminar. This Seminar/Workshop will focus on Basic Training Skills that All Breeds, All Sizes & All Ages of dogs should know to prepare for a successful Obedience, Agility, Rally and/or Companion Pet Career - puppies through adult. The foundation skills learned are not only for the performance show dog, but also for the pet puppy. This seminar will give owners exercises and games to do at home with their new dogs before enrolling in a class and also to give them a headstart in their training.

I presented a 'Foundation Training Workshop' hosted by Stone City Kennel Club on Saturday, March 15, 2008. The response was so positive the Seminar will be scheduled again in 2009. I will also be doing a Foundation Seminar (click here for more info) in New Lenox, IL, October 18, 2008.

Contact me for information on these upcoming seminars or to schedule a seminar for your club:


I have been training dogs since 1988. While I show my dogs in Obedience, Rally, Agility and Conformation the emphasis of my class is to have you be able to enjoy your dog as a well-behaved pet above all else. My goal is to train both ends of the leash. You and your dog will learn the basic commands that every dog should know. I will help you build a foundation to provide basic control of your dog and work toward having a well-mannered dog. We work on attention, walking on a leash, coming when called, sit, down and the stay command. Class size is limited and kept small so that I am able to provide the highest quality instruction for each handler and dog. Treats and verbal rewards as well as positive reinforcement are used in our training.

I am also available for private consultation and training done by appointment in your home. Please contact me for availability and fees.
