About Me And My Pack

        About Me

 

I've helped a lot of people and dogs.  I've given them freedom, innerstanding, empowerment, hope, joy and piece of mind. I've made homes and streets safer.  I've worked hard, had a lot of help along the way.

I created a business and it's called Francesca's Dogs. 

 

I started off my journey like many others.  I started off volunteering my services as a foster dog mom for abandoned and feral dogs .  I did my best to train and rehabilitate dogs so that they could be adopted into families rather than euthanized.  I established myself as someone who could rehabilitate the troubled dogs.  Based on these early experiences, I recognized the need to address the behavior  issues of adopted rescue dogs if I was going to make a difference in the lives of rescue dogs and their families.  I attended National K-9 Professional Dog Trainer School where I studied under Scott Mueller, a pioneer in dog training and rehabilitation and school Director Bob Jervis.  Upon graduating a board certified dog trainer, I started my own business first by training my friends dogs for free and then through their recommendations, I began to build a reputation as a professional dog trainer.  In 2015, I was fortunate enough to be selected to attend a Train The Trainer Seminar lead by Cesar Millan.  From that experience, I started apprenticing for free at Cesar's Dog Psychology Center before I was hired as a Head Trainer for group classes.  Cesar's ranch felt like a university for dog trainers and I thought I should be paying them for the opportunity.  Since I believe mastery is a life long commitment, I continue my education by mentoring under Linn Boyke, who trained under Cesar Millan and founded The School of Dog Psychology.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

     Free Phone Evaluation

 

Before beginning any training, you can schedule a consultation with me over the phone at no cost to you.  

 

Include a picture of your dog.  I will often ask for a few video clips of your dog before we begin training.  These videos allow me to analyze your dog's behaviors and interactions.  

Based on our conversation, we can decide on the best approach and associated costs. 

 

Our Approach

"I speak for the dogs."

It's our responsibility to understand the dog's perspective since they can not understand our perspective.  

We motivate clients to use our approach through demonstration, education and coaching.  Once they get a glimpse into what is possible, the real transformation begins.

Every dog is unique.  We address the root problems and honor what is best for for the dog and you.
