Course Outline
My classes are held indoors and outdoors the year around. Group or private lessons are available. Group lessons meet once a week, one hour, for 6 weeks. The fee is kept low, due to inflation. The owner has a choice of collar or harness, which is preferred for puppies or smaller breeds. Training leashes: 6' leather or nylon are preferred. Retractable or chain leashes are NOT recommended. We stress positive training and frown on harsh methods.
The owner furnishes small chewable dog treats or a squeaky toy to gain the dog's attention. Basic training consists of walking nicely on a leash, come when called, sit, down and "stay or wait". Socialization with other animals, people, objects and noises are part of the program. I also offer Testing for AKC Canine Good Citizen Titles.

About Your Trainer

I grew up in Germany. I developed a great love for animals, mainly dogs. My father was a soft spoken man and treated our dogs and trained them by his soft trainer methods. He had hunting dogs, a German Shepherd and Daschund. I inherited his respect for animals. I became known as a soft trainer following in his footsteps.
Coming to the United States I became a Parks and Recreation employee. Among interesting teaching fields, I developed a training program for dogs and owners. TV channel 4 filmed a 6 week training program with me and my German Shepherds "Maja". I became a member of the German Shepherd Dog Club and later joined the Greater Kansas City Dog Training Club. I retired as a Recreation Director after 22 years, and decided to continue with my training program.
I attended many seminars, studied individual dog breeds to learn their negative and positive behavior. I took different classes with my own dogs. I showed in dog shows, Confirmation and mainly obedience and Agility. I have had classes in Search and Rescue and Tracking. My dogs earned titles and awards.
I have a special interest in training dogs rescued from shelters, puppy mills, the very shy dog and even those showing aggression.
In my dog training class I concentrate on each individual dog owner's needs, the behaviors of their dogs and individualized needs to make man's "Best Friend" a good citizen, that the family and the neighbors can live with.
I am also an AKC, Registered Evaluator. I am certified to test dogs for Canine Good Citizen Titles (CGC).
