LINE1


503TR - TRACKING CLASS
This class meets once a month for ongoing teaching and problem solving. We start with laying a proper foundation for footstep tracking, and then depending on what venue (AKC or Schutzhund) the handler plans to compete in, continue motivating the dog to track for the sport. All dogs know how to use their nose, we just like them to use it a particular way!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
Our vet referred us to Shade for help with some behavioral problems we were having with our adult dog. We now recommend her to everyone!

Wwhether for basic training or help with problem behaviors. Shade is a keenly perceptive observer of canine/human interaction. She makes sure that her training is workable within the household and family members.

We have appreciated her intelligence, depth of knowledge, compassion and humor.

-Margaret Norrander


"I thought I knew and understood dogs pretty well. But when my daughter's Welsh Pembroke Corgi, Jojo, came into my life I quickly realized we needed help making him into a good citizen.

He is a wonderfully spirited and confident (well, headstrong, to be honest) dog and it wasn't long before he was trying to run the entire household and generally being a pain.

We were very fortunate to find Shade who quickly showed us how to teach Jojo to let humans be in charge!

Jojo LOVED going to the classes. I had a lot of fun and learned so much from Shade that we signed up for intermediate lessons right away.

Shade's approach is humane, effective, no-nonsense and, above all, centered on learning to read your dog's behavior. Our whole family is grateful for what she taught us."
