• Chase cats or other animals
• Chase bicycles and other vehicles
• Bark unnecessarily
• Chews on furniture

Then you know your dog needs training.

Hi my name is Kandi.

I have been training dogs for over 40 years and I am a Certified Professional Dog Trainer.  It is of the utmost importance that the entire training process be tailored to the family and their pet.  With more than the average knowledge and experience, I can let you know what the training focus needs to be.  Dogs are happier when they know their owners are pleased with their behavior.  I believe in positive reinforcement.  Each owner and dog has different needs.  I evaluate that particular breed and needs of the owner(s) in relationship with their pet.

Kandi is a Certified Professional Dog Trainer

I train the dogs for their environments.  Positive Reinforcement Dog Training is my passion.  You will love your dog more and he will be well adjusted if he knows what you want from him.  I have been successful in obedience and advanced obedience and all kinds of problem solving.

Obedience Training:

• Heel, Sit, Stay

• Down, Come

• Off Leash

• Socialization

• Distraction Work

• Manners

Problem Solving:

• House Breaking

• Play Biting

• Separation Anxiety

• Aggression

• No Jumping

• No Barking

• No Pulling

Place Command

The "PLACE" command is a very handy command.  What it teaches the dog is to go away from you.  Then lay down on his or her bed and stay until called.  Actually three commands in one.  This can be used in various places in the house and at picnics, BBQ's.... Also in the car.  Give your dog something to chew on and start for 5 minutes and work your way up to hours.  Patience will pay off!

Non-Aggression Training Toward Cats

The owner of this pitbull said he could not get along with cats at all.  And now look at what my training has accomplished.

This German shepherd was also taught to behave around cats.

I think the cat wants a raise for helping teach these dogs non-aggression.

Service Dog Training

Are you in need of a service dog?

Are you searching for someone to train a service dog, therapy dog, or emotional support dog?  After the obedience training I can provide the service training for you dog.

Certified CGC Evaluator

After passing the test a therapy dog can go everywhere including hospitals, hospice, retirement homes, nursing homes, schools and more.

Private boarding for the sessions is the best for amazing results.

Positive Reinforcement Dog Training is my passion. 🐶 💖

You will love your dog more and he will be well adjusted if he knows what you want from him.




I never thought my stubborn puggle Bentley could ever be trained. He got kicked out of training class when he was a puppy. I tried my best to train him myself with watching videos on YouTube. They were no help. Bentley was hard to walk because he pulled me everywhere and barked at other dogs. A lot of time it was embarrassing. I was referred to Kandi by my friends co-worker. She was friendly, professional, and preformed magic in front of my eyes in literally 3 minutes of being there. I had her train my dog at her house for 2 weeks. It was well worth it. My dog is happier and so am I. He walks on the leash, listens to when I call him, sits on demand, stays in place, lays down on command, and goes to place (his bed). I am amazed by her work and would recommend anyone to bring their dogs there!

Kandi is a miracle worker. We brought our one year old pitbull mix to her, three weeks ago for a session. After the first session our dog was already acting completely different. After the first session we decided to leave him in Kandi's two week boot camp and it was the best decision we've made. Brutus' behavior has changed in this short amount of time, he's a lot more responsive to us and he learned a lot of different cues from Kandi. We have another session with Kandi next week to continue reinforcing his new cues and continue training. We would definitely recommend Kandi, she is like the dog whisperer and has prices for boot camp that can't be beat. Thank you, Kandi for training our Brutus and taking such good care of him and making him a part of your pack!

I've tried working with other trainers (unsuccessfully) before working with Kandi, and I can definitely say that she knows what she's doing! She's friendly, doesn't put you on a time limit, and she waits to end the session until you've met your goals for that lesson. My dog Ryder used to pull so much that none of my family members could walk her and now they love spending time with her just as much as I do. There's always something new to learn and skills to practice, I would definitely recommend her training services to all my friends whether you need help with the basics or if you're interested in more advanced training, she does it all!!

Kandi is absolutely amazing! She not only taught my dog the basic commands in one session, but taught me how to continue the training as well. Her training technique is effective and based on experience. She is very in tune with understanding dogs and it shows in her training abilities. I am beyond happy with my experience. It's only been 2 days since our first training session, but their is a very clear change in my german shepherd. He sees me as the leader and is listening to my commands. I can only imagine how much he'll learn months from now!

Kandi created what I thought to be the impossible, possible. We just picked up our 6 month old Lab mix from her 2 week course and we have the making of an obedient, well trained, service dog that listens! I'm impressed. This puppy was as "rascal" as she put it once to us, but now is a better controlled one. We will keep working with her, to improve her skills, as the months progress with Kandi's Free follow up training visits. We highly recommend her services, both my son and I are incredibly grateful for her help. Thanks again Kandi, for a job well done!

Kiwi our ADD lab learned self control and all the standard obedience commands very quickly. All of us that live with Kiwi learned how to issue commands assertively and consistently for very positive results. Kandi also gives you reinforcement sessions for free! Can't beat that! We went back for our first one today and Kiwi was so happy to see Kandi again. That's when I knew we picked the right trainer. Kiwi did great at her first follow up, showing off all she had learned. Highly recommend. And she does not jump on us anymore, nor pull on the leash.

I was at my Wit's End I had rescued at Pitbull mix and he was misbehaving wouldn't do anything I asked him to do like come, sit or number of other commands. Kandi had my dog within seconds not pulling on a leash listening to everything she said to him. It was amazing. Absolutely amazing. I know other dog trainers she's Beyond dog trainer she's like the Dog Whisperer. I highly recommend her to anyone and everyone. What she told me was my dog was extremely trainable and it was me that needed lessons on how to interact with my pitbull rescue mix. I have to say that she was very patient with me.  Petey is a completely different dog with the techniques that she showed me he's no longer pulling on the leash he's sitting when I'm telling him to sit he's so much happier and that's because of Kandi. I absolutely will use her again because I need more training. Thank you again Kandi for your time and your knowledge. A grateful dog owner

Kandi is wonderful! She is REALLY great from the start! I called many places and every place made it sound like a very difficult process and expensive too. Kandi was very clear and understanding. She listened to me and answered my questions. Then I met her and she truly has a gift. I recommend her to everyone, don't waste time and money, go straight to were you see results from the start. I need to add, she has been very patient with me too and has given me guidance on how to command my dog. Thanks Kandi!

I took my dog, Lucky, to Kandi about 2 months ago. Lucky was 6 months old at the time and out of control. He was wild and didn't listen to anyone. I was referred to Kandi by my groomer. My husband called Kandi and set an appointment for us to meet. From the moment I met Kandi she was kind and compassionate. I left Lucky with Kandi for 2 weeks. I thought it would not be possible but the day had arrived for me to pick up Lucky. When I got there I thought I was seeing another dog. Lucky was happy to see me but he was calm at the same time. Very obedient, listened to his commands; come, sit , stay, place and heel. No more jumping and pulling. I would definitely recommend Kandi. Excellent service from start to end. Kandi also offers weekly follow up service free of charge. Very satisfied customer.

I brought my girlfriend to Kandi with her rescue Petey. My friend was desperate she rescued him a year ago. He is a pit mix and she couldn't control him at all. Anyway, Kandi is the real deal. She showed us how some simple alpha techniques could save the life of a dog. We are so grateful. Kandi is the real deal and an amazing trainer. She really speaks dog! Thank you Kandi

Thanks to Kandi's training my dog is now socializing with other dogs and humans. I highly recommend her training especially for aggressive dogs.

I have a Four-year-old pitbull Nala my little troublemaker. My husband found Kandi online, spoke to her and she took the time to listen to his concerns and problems very nice sweet lady. Our first appointment was last Saturday. From the moment we arrived to the appointment she made us feel like family very comfortable and she was very knowledgeable of what she's doing! I already recommended her to somebody. Nala is a different dog.
