Christi’s philosophy is that training should be incorporated into the dog’s daily routine and combined with play and motivating activities, as well as through structured lessons. Christi now offers individual training for you and your dog. She will teach you how to integrate training into your regular day and make it fun and rewarding for you and your dog! Depending on your goals, Christi will develop a training plan for you. The more you work with your dog between lessons, the faster you will progress.
