Small dogs are awesome and amazing to live with. There are some specific challenges that people face when they care for small dogs, including bias from other people, safety issues, aggression, and training problems. This seminar discusses empowerment and positive dog training that will be helpful for both regular pet folks and professional trainers.


This online seminar explores how training and life with small breed dogs can be different for small and toy dogs than for larger canines. I plan discuss the following points in the seminar (subject to change):

  • Benefits of having a small dog
  • Problems specific to small dogs
  • Ways to empower small dogs while still setting safe boundaries
  • Training challenges for small dogs
    • Reading body language
    • Reinforcement strategies
    • & much more
