Your satisfaction is my top priority. I will jump through hoops to help you be successful with your dog.
Welcome to Canine Culture! 

Dog training made easy!

Serving all of upstate Central New York!
Have you ever felt embarrassed in front of company because the dog you love is barking, jumping or otherwise not showing the self control or manners you would like him to have to enjoy your dog AND your friends together?
Are you frustrated because your dog does not listen to anything you say? Is he jumping and barking, at the windows, fence or strangers and company?
These are common complaints and problems. That are more easily fixed than you might imagine. Even if your dog is older or has an unknown history.

Is your dog difficult to take for a relaxing walk because you worry about the cat, squirrel or loose dog that can appear around the next corner? Do you feel anxiety about your lack of control when going to the vet? Or defeated that you cannot enjoy taking your dog to the park or on public excursions?
These are often called "reactive" dogs. Whether due to excitement, excess energy, happiness, fear, anxiety or aggression, these are very common problems. You are not alone.

Do you experience guilt, or feel sorry for your pet because he/she is extremely shy, fearful or anxious and neither you nor your dog can enjoy or experience "normal" experiences together without unnecessary stress? You may be surprised at how we can fix that!

You can be the envy of the neighborhood! You can see results as quickly as the first class! Your friends will notice!

Would you like to learn how to have better behavior, cooperation, and communication with your dog?

Would you like to learn who he/she really is, and who he needs YOU to be to help him overcome behavior problems and other common issues such as fearfulness and aggression?

Would you like to learn how to fulfill his nature to help correct hyperactivity and destructiveness?

Would you like to earn respect and cooperation, and develop the ULTIMATE relationship, without domination, pain or fear?

Or... is he just perfect, and you just want to learn how to have even MORE fun with your dog?!

Have you taken your dog to a group training class and not gotten the results or attention you needed?

Would you like to work together with a trainer who will teach you everything you need to know?

If the answer to ANY of the previous questions is YES, I understand how you feel! See the programs page and give me a call and tell me about your dog!

Using easy to understand motivational methods, anyone can master these skills in just a few short minutes a day.
The time you spend living with your dog, and incorporating the skills you learn, into your life, is much more important than isolated training sessions.

No matter what your success has been in the past I am confident that you will gain a much better understanding of your dogs mind. What makes him tick. With this knowledge it will be easier for you to improve most behavioral problems such as shyness, reactivity, phobias, and even aggression.

Canine Culture provides the type of learning style that is only available through one-on-one, or in a small group setting. I will be by your side every step of the way.
You can attend a variety of classes and clinics geared towards the specific topics that you are interested in. 

Anyone can improve their pet communication skills. Whether you are an experienced dog owner or it's your first puppy, the sky is the limit to what you can do with your dog. If you are interested in sports, competition, a nice leisurely stroll in the park or what ever you might be dreaming of...
Wyatt was very nervous about going for a ride at first... but with a skillful introduction (and a safety harness and belt) he now LOVES going for a ride!
