“My experience has been wonderfully upbeat. Eric's technique focuses on positive reinforcement and gentle handing techniques. He works with you and helps you learn how to shape a desired behavior and, more importantly, teaches you to anticipate the cues the dog gives you so you both can succeed at training . . ."

"A well behaved dog makes a perfect companion and should be a pleasure to live with. Unfortunately, your canine companion isn’t born with inbuilt good behavior and social skills.  Although they are always learning, if you don't teach them appropriate manners and skills, they invent their own, which is not a good idea. Training allows you to not only bond with your canine companion, but to safely and humanely control their behavior."
