MY STORY

Evaluating the whole dog from inside to outside!

Tyler - TeeJay - and Friend.jpg

Hello, my name is Lynne Shaw!

As a student of canine behavior since childhood, I have always been intrigued by interactions between dogs and people.

I have been involved in canine training and behavior modification for more than 20 years. I am a Certified Veterinary Technician, Certified Pet Dog Trainer, Canine Behavior Adviser to local Humane Societies and a retired Field Trainer for Paws with a Cause ( a service dog organization for the disabled). Post graduate work in Psychology and Pharmacology plus continuing education have kept me on top of the latest techniques and tools to help me help you and your pet.

I offer in home consultations for those seeking individual attention and group classes for puppies and adult dogs needing social skills.

I am looking forward to meeting you!

Lynne Shaw.

 

Let me help improve your animal-owner relationship. Training improves communication between you and your pet, strengthening the bonds of loyalty and obedience, and increasing the potential to introduce a well-loved member into your family for the rest of their life.  Sign up today!

Twenty five years plus experience in the field of veterinary medicine, canine nutrition, and canine behavior have given me the expertise to asses the WHOLE dog.
In order to treat the inappropriate behaviors, we must isolate the causes. Through behavior modification, working with your veterinary team, changes in the household, training techniques designed specifically for your dog, proper nutrition, and possible pharmaceutical intervention, we can eliminate unwanted behavior.
