Naturally Driven K9 provides efficient, result-based training, utilizing natural K9 tendencies to shape your dog’s behavior. My goal is to provide both dog and owner with a sense of mutual respect, improved communication and safety for the community. What I want for you is a dog who is confident, healthy, attentive, and a loving member of your family.

My Training Methods are Simple…

Focus on Behavior and Obedience. This is the foundation upon which “GOOD DOG” behavior is successfully built.

Modeling leadership while allowing dogs to express their enthusiasm and personality.

Conditioning the dog to learn the difference between a CALM and an EXCITED state of mind.

Building confidence and respect in the owners and their dogs.
