Lessons learned while training for Flyball, Agility, Rally, Obedience, Conformation, Herding, Freestyle, Frisbee, and Therapy work translate into enhanced methods of teaching pets to be better companions and family members AND allow us to have fun with them.

Traci created the Hollywood Dog™ class to teach owners the skills necessary to break into show business and Reactive Dog™ classes to help people learn to manage their dogs’ out of control behaviors and teach the dog the skills needed to have more normal interactions with the world around them. She prides herself on creating rewarding relationships between dogs and owners by equipping them with the knowledge to lead a happy and healthy life together.
“I take pride in providing my clients with personalized attention and professional instruction that is based on the most up-to-date science about dog training and behavior. My goal is to help you better understand and teach your dog so he or she can be a valued, lifelong companion.
“My training methods are non-force-based, progressive, and very dog friendly. You’ll love the simplicity, your dog will love the attention, and you’ll both love the results. No more struggling to get your dog’s attention and cooperation. You’ll be delighted with your dog’s progress and will look forward to each lesson.”
