Hello & WelcomE...
My name is Brigitte Bard and I am a holistic dog trainer living in Santa Monica, California with my pup, Mr. Fox. I work full time with dogs and their humans and I incorporate and offer daily socialization, dog park trips, exercise & trail hiking as I find these are excellent compliments to private training; it is like sending your dog to school & camp during the days so they can continue their private training education in a fun supportive environment.
My goal is for you is to experience a rewarding relationship with your dog. During our private training sessions I will share skills, tips and knowledge to help your pet shine and allow you to work through whatever issues or challenges you may be encountering with your dog. And I will strive to make the times your dog is with me fulfilling and enjoyable as well as educating and stimulating.
My services and approach to dog training and animal care are holistic, taking into consideration you and your dog’s needs as well as both of your individual personalities. I choose more natural modalities and approaches when addressing behavior, socialization, diet, lifestyle, fitness and relationship and cater specifically to each client. Although each dog possesses characteristics that make them unique, there are definitely species similarities that respond positively to the tools, games, drills and experience that I share.
I am excited that you are here and I look forward to helping you develop the happiest and healthiest relationship you can have with your canine companion.
