My promise to you:

Humane treatment: I will never need or want to hurt or scare your dog in order to train or implement humane behavior modification. Therefore, I will never use tools or methods designed to poke, pinch, choke, shock, or otherwise hurt or frighten your beloved companion.

Animal-human bond: I believe that part of my job is  to guide you in forging a path to the happiest possible life with your canine companion. Therefore, I will always endeavor to guide you in achieving lifelong training and handling habits that tend to result not only in better behavior, but in a stronger bond between you and your dog.

Honesty:  I will endeavor to be honest with you about your dog and your situation with your dog. In this regard, if ever the choice becomes one of either telling you the truth or making you feel good, I will be truthful. I will never try to win your business by telling you what you want to hear when that would be different than the truth because sometimes, in some businesses, doing so can lead to harm.
