2) Dogs will be trained in all basic and advanced obedience
3) Public Access test training to include: Shopping centers, parks, downtown, crowded environments.
4) Dog will be trained to “place” on command and a hold “place” for extended time periods.

Hi! I'm Shelly!
I have been training dogs for 20 years and have experience in every area of the "dog world". From competing around the nation in dog agility with my dog, Sprite, to teaching inmates how to train Service Dogs for individuals with autism and wounded veterans, to working as a behavioral specialist with dogs with anxiety and reactivity, to working with hundreds of new puppy and dog owners on basics, off leash and tricks, you could say I've seen it all. I am a Certified Trick Dog Instructor, and my youngest dog Stitch was one of the youngest dogs in history (may actually be THE youngest!) to achieve the award of Trick Dog Champion, meaning he knew over 50 tricks at only 4 months of age. I take a modern, psychology based approach to dog training, because common, it IS 2020! This means, I teach pet parents how to REWARD the good and REDIRECT the bad. No shocking, choking, yelling or intimidating - The focus is all on trust and communication. Isn't that the key to any healthy relationship?! Dogs are brilliant creatures that want to do the right thing, it's just our job to help teach them what that is. And for the dogs who already have behavioral issues, just think of a human trying to break a bad habit. It CAN be done, it just takes getting to the root of the problem and addressing it properly to create new BETTER habits. My passion lies in seeing humans and dogs have strong, trusting relationships so that people can do MORE with their dog.
When I'm not training dogs full time at VIBE Dog Training (I am CO-Business owner with my husband!), I love hiking, running, and competing in agility with my 2 Border Collies, Sprite and Stitch. So enough about me, let's get started so you can have that happy, well balanced dog you've always wanted to have!
