Prairie Skies offers innovative and learning-based approaches for raising and training dogs and puppies, providing effective discipline, and creating healthier, happier families. We foster an active and interactive team process between the owner, dog, and trainer. We'll hlep you learn and practice new skills, identify practical techniques and strategies using common sense, hands-on approaches. Our goal: measurable, transparent results.
Our classes and programs work to create effective, caring communication, establish clear boundaries and fair consequences, and support healthy dogs, healthy families and communities.
"I believe that while dogs do come prepared to live companionably with us in our homes and communities, it is up to us to teach our dogs what our expectations are, and to do so using balanced methods that produce results. Doing so requires practice, care, patience, love, commitment, and, most certainly, a sense of humor."
