Diamonds In The Ruff
4788 County Road 3
Swanton, OH 43558
Phone: 419.825.520
Most of us get caught up in focusing on the undesirable behaviors our dogs express: jumping, barking, biting, stealing, chewing, ect. which doesn't allow us to see why the dog exhibits this behavior. Basic to our dog training, we need to ask ourselves what is the dog trying to tell me, or what does he need.
Let's Train! Dog Training
3618 King Rd

Phone: (419) 351-5809
I use training methods that are rooted in science-based learning theory, without the use of force. You don't need to shock, prong, or choke your dog to teach them. In fact, the increased stress due to aversive methods stunts learning.
