Canine Stability and Rehabilitation Center

All problem behaviors are a function of the body, not the mind.  When the body feels
frenzied on the inside, it reflects in problem behaviors on the outside.  We work to help the
dog feel better on the inside so they can function calmly in our world even under high
intense situations.     

A stimulated dog will move energy as stress. Stress is what manifests into many different
outlets, all of which we call "problem behaviors".  These behaviors, to the dog, are a
solution to a stimulation problem.  When they feel well inside, there are no problems

Learning to move well with you dog promotes healing on the inside.  When your dog can
remain calm around you, soften to your touch and remain calm without you, you have no

An excerpt from his website:

Natural Dog Training is about establishing emotional rapport as a basis for training.   There’s so much emphasis today on giving dogs mental stimulation,
physical exercise, play dates, hiking groups, and tons of early and on-going training, but what is getting lost in all this activity is the notion of emotional
rapport. Rapport isn’t trained or learned, it is developed. In the canine mind, rapport emerges by being part of a team. I call my method “Natural”
because it understands the dog’s nature as a group hunter. A dog doesn’t work for pride in accomplishment, to earn respect from a leader, praise,
rewards or even play or positive experiences. A dog wants to be part of a team. Everything in a dog’s life is secondary to this social drive. If a dog
doesn’t have rapport, he has problems.
