Dogs love Training with Lindsay
“Lindsay worked with us and our two dogs, our lives are changed. We are less stressed and the dogs are happier.”
Training with Lindsay uses science-based, positive reinforcement training methods.
We follow the LIMA principle: Least Intrusive, Minimally Aversive method. The leading dog training organizations are in favor of this science-based, positive training approach:
- American Veterinary Society of Animal Behaviorists (AVSAB)
- Society of Veterinary Behavior Technicians (SVBT)
- Association of Professional Dog Trainers (APDT)
- Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers (CCPDT)
- International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants (IAABC)
- Pet Professional Guild (PPG)
Lindsay graduated from the only school in the country that offers a Bachelor of Science in Canine Behavior, Bergin University of Canine Studies.
Upon graduation, she worked on the Behavior Team at an animal shelter in Missouri, then moved on to training Service Dogs in San Diego. Along with Lindsay’s degree, she has had thousands of hours of hands-on training experience, is Fear Free Certified, an AKC CGC evaluator, an AKC Fit Dog Instructor, and keeps up-to-date on current research by attending continuing education seminars.
Toys are Toby’s preferred method of reinforcement! He worked through his fear of people and dogs through the use of rope toys and tennis balls.
Grover used to growl, bark, and try to bite guests entering the home. Through Fear Free methods, he learned to love his training time with Lindsay, offered her some doggy kisses, and became comfortable with new people coming over.
