​​​Dog Training For Life

Laara Yaghujaanas : Bella`s owner

"I've had the pleasure of working with Yasuko since my puppy was only a few months old. Knowing my dog would be big I wanted to ensure I had the best knowledge to build a good relationship with her, and minimize any difficulties. Having had well behaved dogs all my life I appreciated Yasuko's kind, intelligent and supportive style when I needed to learn more. Yasuko brought out the best in me and my dog and I recommend her highly for anyone wanting to improve their relationship with their dog."

I use Dog  psychology with positive Training Methord and positive reinforcement without treats!  

Does your dog listen to you?
Does your dog frustrate you ? 
Does your dog stop when you say NO?

Ericka Sparber : Tonka and Toro`s owner

I really appreciate Yasuko's care and dedication to help Tonka! I looked for a dog trainer because when a guest came over to my house he would jump up on people, hump them and nip at their feet!! She came first for a consultation which I thought was by the hour but she stayed until I had exhausted every question possible! She was extremely patient with us and wow did I learn a lot!! At my house she assessed how Tonka and I relate to each other and our behaviour. I learned so much I bought a package of lessons which was worth every penny!! She trained us to build our relationship instead of using treats which is extremely valuable since Tonka is a bulldog and is already a big boy. Tonka has become very polite with my guests now and we're working on outdoor leash training. I highly recommend this training!!!!

Thank you Yasuko!!!
