Sometimes You Need a Little Reminder

The Growl to Grow Dog Training and Support Program goes beyond teaching skills.

This program also supports you, the pet parent through the challenges of the training ups and downs.

Learning never happens in a straight line.

Rather the dips in achieving which we perceive as failures are necessary for gains.

Gains in your dog cresting a hill of learning something new.

The gain may also be for you.

Raising your awareness of what is needed everyday living life with your dog.

Having the contrast of progress being accomplished to the stagnation or even perceived regression of a skill is necessary for us to re examine what you need to do to get back into the practice.

As your coach, I’m here to offer you support and guide you in deepening your knowledge of how your dog learns and your role in shaping this too.

Find out how I can support you through teaching your dog more of what you want.
