S. Miley Dog Training and Rehabilitation starts on the relationship level between dogs and their people. I understand that by the time folks are looking for a dog trainer they are already in a lot of pain and experience a huge amount of stress when it comes to their dogs.  You may feel trapped by your dog’s behaviors.  I want people to understand that the same dog causing this concern can soon be the dog that brings them pleasure and a dog they can be proud of!   How do I do this?  I teach people how to listen to and understand their dog. Clear concise communication is key for the relationship to grow in a positive manner. A dog can trust you but have very little respect for you. My goal is for your dog to understand how to behave and for you to understand what steps to take to instill trust and build a relationship with your dog through mutual respect. It all starts at relationship.  The ultimate goal is to help owners create the dog of their dreams. It isn’t all about sit and stay…it is about using these things to establish trust build respect and leadership. In the hands of a caring, strong leader, the dog’s mind will relax, all leading to a happy and balanced relationship.
