Meet your trainer

Hi! I'm Leslie,

I understand that your pet is an important part of your family and deserves the best. I am committed to helping you create the type of relationship you want with your pet through humane positive reinforcement based training. 

I’m passionate about training cooperative care with dogs and cats and spreading awareness that our pets can be voluntary participants in their husbandry and medical care. And possibly even enjoy it!

I teach you the skills necessary to successfully train and improve your pets behavior so your life is more enjoyable together.

I look forward getting to know you and your pet!
