A little about myself
My name is Lynne Dunham and I have been training dogs for 30 years, from puppy classes to agility and all level of obedience.
Although I have competed in dog obedience and agility trials at a national level with my own dogs, my classes are geared to the Pet Owner.
At the present some of my dogs are learning Freestyle Dancing with your dogs, and Rally O Obedience.
I provide instruction in each class to show you how to gently and effectively teach your Friend how to perform the exercises. Using Positive Reinforcement techniques to reshape your dogs behaviors enriches their lives. Most dogs can learn up to over 90 words using positive training approach, where the old traditional methods of forced training will discourage some dogs and cause them to want to stop learning new things after a few command words are learned.
