Cape Cod's Expert Dog Trainer

Puppy Training · Reactivity · Behavior Problems · Obedience · Off-leash

Would You Answer "Yes" To Any Of These Questions?

Are you feeling frustrated or overwhelmed by your dog's behavior?

Does your dog have selective hearing or ignore you when you need them to listen most?

Have you had it with constant or excessive barking?

Does taking your dog on a walk make you feel embarrassed or defeated?

Is your dog driving you crazy?

Have you worked with other trainers in the past but still feel like you didn't make the progress you wanted to?

If you would, you're in the right place.

Here at Cape Canine Academy, my dog training programs are designed to be tailored specifically to you and your dog. You'll get a dog who actually listens and is able to settle and relax on their own. A dog who is a pleasure to walk around the neighborhood, take on outings, and hang around the house with.

Even if you've worked with other trainers in the past and felt like you failed, you didn't. Dog Training is not one-size-fits-all, and our professional and experienced dog trainer is a pro at figuring out exactly what your dog needs to thrive.

Let's Talk! I Can't Wait To Hear About Your Dog.

Meet Your Dog Trainer

"With nearly a decade of experience in dog training, I have developed a keen interest in truly understanding my clients' needs and ensuring they achieve their goals. Recognizing that dog training is not a one-size-fits-all endeavor, you can trust that each of my lessons is uniquely tailored to you and your canine companion. 

Frequently, clients approach me after attempting various training programs elsewhere, only to find temporary success. I've delved into the reasons for why this happens and have dedicated myself to providing you and your dog with a training program that gives you lasting results."
