Along the way, I noticed many dogs were struggling with fear of other dogs, while their owners struggled to control and understand why their dog was reacting in certain ways. This is when I realized there wasn’t a place where disorderly or mischievous dogs, that had been kicked out of their prior daycares, could go and learn how to properly engage with others.
In order for me to be able to apply my lessons, I needed a controlled environment where my clients could bring in their problematic or insecure dogs. In September 2018, I founded Canine Domain, an indoor/outdoor facility where we help shape misunderstood dogs, and have found that the best way to understand a dog is through observation and interaction with others. It serves as a one stop shop for all dog training needs: from socialization to boarding, along with a variety of other specialized courses offered by regional trainers. With the help of my three balanced dogs, Kovu, Railey, and Mina — we train dogs dealing with a variety of problems to learn how to become confident and well-mannered. By properly socializing a dog with a group of balanced dogs, we have the ability to rehabilitate a dog faster than other methods, and is proven to fix many behavioral problems, without focusing on the problem itself.
I teach my clients how to perceive their dog’s state of mind, body language and behavior; It is truly satisfying to see the bond between dog and owner grow and lead them to a closer last in relationship.
