Helping our pets live their best lives is a common goal among pet guardians, but at times, it can be complicated. As a Licensed L.E.G.S. Family Dog Mediator and a Certified Professional Trainer, I help guardians understand their pet’s needs and behaviors and help open the lines of communication between people and their pets.
As a Family Dog Mediator, I assess your pet’s learning history, environment, genetics, and individual self to determine how we can assist you and your pet on your life journey together. Many behaviors that may be problematic in the home are generally natural behaviors expressing themselves. Therefore, by finding less problematic methods to allow your pet to express themself and utilizing enrichment and decompression, we can reduce problematic behaviors.
As a certified trainer, I will help you understand your pet’s behaviors and determine how to better manage or change the behaviors that are causing problems in the home. Together, we will evaluate the behaviors and find more suitable behaviors that are compatible with the environment.
Together, we will formulate an achievable plan that fits your and your pet’s needs, and with the ongoing support program, part of my mediation/training packages, you can check in, send videos for evaluation, and communicate any difficulties or successes as they occur.
We all love our pets and want the very best for them, and rarely, do we bring them home thinking that training and behavior problems will occur. I established Pawesome Pet Services because I understand this and have worked through, and will continue to encounter and work through, various issues with my own pets. Through my own experiences, I’ve learned that changing behavior requires a multifaceted approach, which includes regular veterinary care, especially in cases of sudden behavior change; clear communication between us and our pets; proper nourishment; and enrichment activities that include exercise, decompression activities, and mental games.
By examining your pet’s behavior and history and engaging with you as their advocate and guardian, I will create a plan that fits you and your pet’s needs and will empower you to help your struggling pet. We’ll look at body language and will decipher what your pet is trying to tell you, break down the training process into easy to manage pieces that fit your lifestyle, and work towards helping you and your pet’s fulfillment.
I wish owning a pet was all rainbows and unicorns, but it often isn’t. We’re sharing our homes with sentient beings that have their own needs and wants. This becomes even more challenging with our beloved pet has struggles with issues that can make our lives harder; in fact, just stepping forward to get help can be intimidating. I understand this and want to help you and your pet have the life you’ve always wanted.
Egypt is an American Bobtail mix who came into my life with aggression issues. Using positive reinforcement training, I was able to help her build confidence and was able to leash train her. Even with enrichment and training, Egypt continued to struggle until we met our holistic vet who was able to help her overcome her issues with Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Egypt enjoys playing with her dog “sisters,” being brushed, learning tricks and cues, doing food puzzles, and hiking when the weather is nice.
Luna is a mixed-breed rescue who came to us blind in one eye; she eventually had to have the eye removed. Luna is a fun-loving girl who enjoys being around people. She has struggled with leash reactivity to other dogs and separation anxiety. Both have dramatically improved with enrichment, training, and TCM. Luna had bilateral knee surgery two years ago and excelled at physical therapy because of her training skills. Luna loves decompression walks, running , parkour, puzzle toys, and learning new tricks.
Leda is a mixed-breed dog who came to us at four weeks old because her mother was ill and could no longer nurse. She’s loves exploring and sniffing and can usually be found with her nose to the ground. Leda struggled with allergies early in life which made socialization hard because of her itchy skin. As an adolescent, Leda struggled with obsessive behaviors, such as running between windows to find things to bark at and required a lot of decompression and mental enrichment to keep her mind busy. Leda loves playing with toys, decompressing in the forest, parkour, and learning new tricks and cues.
