Gardenia has worked as an animal trainer for most of her adult life. She was first introduced to the idea of training animals as a child. She worked with her family’s farm animals for fun, getting to know them individually. Who knew chickens and goats can be trained just like dogs? Gardenia works with humans, teaching them about their dogs’ cues, responses, what motivates them and what their needs are. Her knowledge and innate sense for how dogs communicate, her ability to read them through their body language is astounding! Once you understand what your dog is trying to “tell” you she will create a program specific for your dog and your family. Most training for dogs, no matter what method is used, does not transfer from one place to another. That is why training is done in your home so that the lessons he/she learns are understood in your dog’s own environment.
