Thoughtful Dogs will not be accepting new clients for the foreseeable future. The national shelter dog crisis will require my full attention. For folks in the Williamsburg area, refer to Shared Joy Dog Training. For others, please utilize the trainer search functions on the CCPDT and IAABC websites. 
Thank you.


Science-Based Methods. Modern Techniques

Useful, Usable, Practical "Real-Life Skills" 

Training that you (and your dog) can feel good about.

A good dog makes their humans happy.  Good humans make their dogs happy.  My goal is to help create those happy, healthy, harmonious homes.  All of my credentials and certifications have all been to help me fulfill that goal.  

Training is not about teaching commands for their own sake.  Training is about learning the skills necessary to have the best life with our dogs that we possibly can.   


Time to turn your canine buddy in to your best friend...
