I come to you and I work within your availability. Typically, I train in your own home where you and your pup are most comfortable.
The first visit is designed to get to know each other and develop an outline for a training program that is specific to your needs.
Training a dog is not a cookie cutter approach and support and ongoing coaching is often necessary. I assist in procuring appropriate training tools for you and loan out some equipment such as crates and long leads when needed. I also maintain a reference list for vets, sitters and walkers if needed.
Dog Talk LLC treated my precious little Fluffy with all the care and attention you could ever ask for!
I have had a passion for dogs and their people for my entire life, and have finally made that passion a way of life.
I have had a very successful 40 year career in health care, first as a clinician and finally as an executive. My work in healthcare provided me with a basis of understanding people and the need for compassion and coaching in life. After all those years in corporate life, I decided to "semi-retire" to follow my dream and went back to school to become a professional dog trainer. I attended the Animal Behavioral College (ABC) and spent about a year and a half learing about the complexity of training dogs and their owners. I still commit a great deal of time as a volunteer at dog rescue organizations and working with my mentor to best hone my skills and knowledge required to be a valued coach to both people and pets.
I started my own business in 2012 with a focus on working with owners and their best friends in order to help them develop lifelong bonds through mutual respect and training. Extremely happy with the path I have chosen, I enjoy using my vast life experiences to help dogs and their owners learn how to live together with respect and love.
Sincerely, Lynn Soderlund
