Training your dog should be an enjoyable experience for both you and your dog. You can have a dog that listens in the house and out in public. Your dog can learn to walk on leash without pulling you, or greet people calmly. Through proper training, you can achieve a lifelong positive relationship with your dog.
If you want your dog to listen off leash then it is essential to train without relying on a leash or collar as a correction or communication tool. Dawn takes a hands off approach that comes from not only her background in working with wild and exotic animals, but staying current on the research and studies in the field of animal training and behavior. "Training a baboon or a wolf without relying on physical control teaches you to communicate and build a relationship out of trust and respect. That is what I aim to teach people to have with their dogs."
Committed to results based, science based, force free training. Years of research has proven this to be the most effective and most humane way to train. Whatever your needs, she can design a personalized training program for you. You would expect your vet or doctor to use the latest techniques and research in their field, so you should expect the same from a professional dog trainer. Dawn continues her education through webinars, books, and belonging to some of the top organizations in the field of training and behavior.
Dawn is currently the only Certified Dog Behavior Consultant and Certified Dog Bite Safety Educator in the state of Hawaii. She is also an AKC evaluator for CGC titles.
Currently she is a member of the International Associate of Behavior Consultants, Association of Professional Dog Trainers, Pet Professional Guild and Doggone Safe.
The American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior (AVSAB) has issued a position statement that recommends veterinarians refer clients ONLY to trainers and behavior consultants who understand the principles of learning theory and who focus on reinforcing desirable behaviors and removing reinforcement for undesirable behaviors. "Therefore, trainers who routinely use choke collars, pinch collars, shock collars, and other methods of physical punishment as a primary training method should be avoided."
