  • positive review  Bo was amazing with my shepherd and her reactive personality. He gave effective tips and tricks to help her stay calm in uncomfortable situations, along with written instructions we could refer back to! I would definitely recommend him to others who are having problems training their dog!

  • Bo is amazing! He is full of information. He was able to work with our puppy who is leash reactive, and get her to happily meet another dog is less than 40 minutes! So awesome! I am so thankful I found him to help us, especially since other trainers told us they couldn't.

  • positive review  I have nothing but good things to say about Bo and his training. I was feeling very helpless with my dog Duke and his behavioral issues and am very glad I found his website online. Bo came to our house to work with our dog Duke. He asked tons of questions to understand what we wanted out of the training, and to understand Duke and what his needs were as well. By the fourth session I had seen a ton of improvement with Duke, and also feel more confident having the tools to help set him up for further success. I highly recommend contacting Bo for any of your dog training needs!

  • We had our fist class with Bo a few days after we brought Gytha home at 10 weeks. At 5 months, we're doing Bo's group class, and we're doing really well! Bo is an amazing trainer — sure, he's great with the dogs (he's their best friend, I'm not even chopped liver), but he's also great with people. If you're on the fence, just do it. As long as you put in the work, you and your dog will flourish with Bo's guidance.

  • positive review  I would highly recommend Bo. He was great with our 2 somewhat unruly rescues. He was even able to work with the one that was fearful of men. Bo taught us several techniques that have helped us tremendously with their behavior. It was definitely money well spent!

It Began With Puppy Loki

When I adopted Puppy Loki back in 2013, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. 

He was extremely high energy and extremely smart. Too often I felt like I just wasn’t able to keep up with him. 

I remember one day on the edge of tears not sure what to do, wondering for the first time whether I was going to be able to do this. 

It was then that I looked him in his furry little face, and I said to him…

“I promise, I’ll figure this out no matter what it takes.” 

I obsessively immersed myself in the study of dog training

I refused to give up. I learned everything I could about dog training. 

I tried different approaches. In retrospect, some things I wish I hadn’t done. Sure, they were “accepted” methods of dog training, but they weren’t healthy for any dog. To this day, I can see their adverse effects on Adult Loki. I admit I have regrets. 

But, back then I didn’t know what to do. I had no way of knowing whether certain dog-training approaches were going to benefit my puppyy or damage him. 

Thankfully, somewhere along the line I discovered science-based, force-free training. The methods are all safe and designed to do no harm. I dove right in and never turned back. 

Enter the dog trainer

As a result of trying to survive Puppy Loki, I ended up becoming a professional dog trainer.

I’m thankful for Loki entering my life and taking me into a different, unforseen direction. 

Once I started my own force-free dog-training business, I knew I wanted to help others avoid the struggles I had to overcome. 

I asked myself, “What do I wish someone had taught me when I adopted Puppy Loki so that we could have had the smoothest transition possible and I could set him up for success as he matured?”

That question led to the creation of the Canine Coaching Course

This course has evolved over the years, and now it’s my powerful flagship program that clients love.

The Canine Coaching Course

This isn't "just another dog-training class"

Let me teach you how to train like a pro

Imagine your dog developing an issue. While others would call a dog trainer, you say to yourself, “I’ve got this”. And you do!

That’s what I want for you.

Most other dog-training courses teach your dog a set number of “skills” or “tricks”. 

If you want more, you have to pay for more.

That’s NOT what I do.

Instead, through the Canine Coaching Course. I teach you the basic principles concepts, and techniques of modern, science-based dog training, so you can learn to train your own dog as you need to and not have to turn to a dog-trainer for basic training ever again. 

In other words: I teach you how to use the very system I use to train dogs myself.

Become independent of expensive, professional dog training that you can now do yourself

No more frustration and yelling because your dog joyfully wants to respond to you

Strengthen your relationship with your dog beyond what you previously thought possible

  • Bo is a great trainer. He has been working with Ryder and I have seen a improvement beyond belief. Ryder is 6 months old now and is doing great on his training with Bo. Bo is very good at explaining things to us and makes it very easy to understand. If you need help with your Puppy I highly recommend Bo to help you. He not only trains your Pup he also trains you to be a better dog owner. It is nice to have a well behaved dog. Thank you Bo for helping us with Ryder!

We contacted Bo for help and he gave us a lot of techniques and tips for kind and force free training to address these issues. We are already seeing progress in them and would recommend Bo if you need help with your dog.

It only took two training sessions for my dogs and now everyone that knew my dogs behavior issues and went around them before now comes around them with no problems and notices saying “Wow, training really did pay off.”
