At BratPak, we understand the value dogs have in our lives. They cheer us up when we are down, make awesome travel buddies on road trips, motivate us to get off the couch and take a walk, and just generally enrich our lives in so many ways.

We also believe a well-behaved dog will be a happier and healthier member of your family. Since a dog’s #1 goal in life is to please his/her owner, dogs who clearly understand your rules and boundaries will live a more fulfilled life. But it is up to YOU to clearly communicate those rules and boundaries!

That’s why at BratPak, we focus on teaching OWNERS as much as we do the dogs. In this blog, I’ll address a variety of aspects of dog behavior and training to give you a better understanding of your dog. Upcoming topics will include canine communication, body language, understanding stress, social interaction, etc.

Just like people, each dog comes with his/her unique personality, along with their own set of experiences and fears. The more you understand your dog, the better equipped you’ll be to teach your dog your expectations and develop a lifelong relationship based on mutual trust and respect.

In my training, I utilize a balanced training approach, focused on positive reinforcement and each dog’s individual personality and learning style. I look forward to working with you to build a better relationship with your best friend.
