Cultivating Your Canine Companion
Note: During this time of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have provided information about the risk of your pets getting COVID-19 and guidance for minimizing risk to your pets.
NOTE: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all group classes are suspended, yet in-person training continues. As an essential service, Ann is providing in-person therapy sessions during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Human-Animal Solutions formula:
practice, results, peace of mind.
Puppies! (up to 1 year)
NOTE: During the COVID-19 pandemic, groups are suspended.
Much like human children, puppies learn through play. With young puppies, we call this socialization: when puppies learn how to be around new things in their world. Research shows that puppies who receive thoughtful and systematic socialization before they are 18 weeks old (the end of a critical development period) are the most likely to become well-adjusted adults. But that doesn’t mean that training ends at 18 weeks!
Ann Howie (of Human-Animal Solutions) and Patti Howard of Your Canine Resource combine their expertise to provide puppy play and socialization for only two puppies at a time. This small size keeps everyone safe and allows us to give you and your puppy the focus you deserve. Contact us to start getting the results you want.

You know what you want your puppy to learn. You will learn, too!
- Canine communication through body language
- Who your puppy is (again through body language)
- What to do when you’re at a loss
Adult Canine Training & Behavior
NOTE: During the COVID-19 pandemic, state regulations for public safety require flexibility in scheduling and services. Ann is providing private in-person consultations in her facility or at your home. For those who are uncomfortable meeting in person, telephone or internet video conferencing is another option.
Ann meets with you privately in your home or in her heated-in-the-winter/cooled-in-the-summer facility. You will feel understood as she works to clarify your needs and goals with your dog. Your dog will feel understood as Ann teaches you how to work with your dog in a way that respects your dog’s point of view and results in the behavior you desire. The two of you will work harmoniously once again.
Do you have a shy dog? Ann specializes in working with shy dogs at your dog’s pace to help your best friend gain confidence and have fun with you. She gives you techniques to work with your dog rather than at cross-purposes so that you both will be happier and more confident. We humans seldom intend to do things that are confusing to our dogs, yet without understanding our dog’s point of view, we can cause them distress. Ann helps you avoid stressing your dog while encouraging your dog to be the best dog s/he can be.
Contact Ann now for peace of mind. Complete and submit this registration form to get started with general training! If your dog has a problem behavior you’d like to solve, complete this registration form instead.
