Be a Guardian – Not an Owner

….because animals are not mere commodities, property, or things.  Anna’s Ark wants to help promote a deeper level of compassion, respect, and appreciation for your dog.

There has been a lot of hype about certain training methods which practice dominance or intimidation techniques.  Our goal is to instruct you to teach your dog so that he/she understands your requests.

We also work with you, thus developing better understanding of natural dog behaviors and offer strategies to help you work through problems.

Anna’s Ark does not practice or teach training methods which use force, intimidation or threats.  My goal is to help you to teach your dog strategies to expand his toolbox.  A larger toolbox assists your dog in making better choices when you are faced with problem behaviors.
