Owner and behavior therapist, Jeff Tinsley, specializes in rescue/shelter dogs, and behavior modification. His nearly 20 years of experience working with anxiety, fear, and aggression issues are brought to you in a positive, caring, and understanding environment.
Jeff's mission is to provide a positive, caring environment; to help people to love, trust, and respect their dogs; and receive the same in return.
We teach owners how to teach their dogs understand how to properly handle different situations. Using clear and consistent commands, gentle handling and training, we show pets how to be good family members.
Our techniques are never harsh or painful. We use positive reinforcement and clicker training almost exclusively.
