Gaston, Mecklenburg

‘19 Certificate of Excellence

I am Lena Skov, MBA, KPA, and I am the dog trainer covering a very large area fromCharlotte, NC to Gastonia, NC and from Huntersville, NC to Rock Hill, SC. I have vast experience of 20 years of working with dogs of many breeds and personalities, as well as formal education. I graduated from the prestigious Karen Pryor Academy for Animal Training and Behavior. Among many, there are two main aspects that set my business apart from others: 1. While dealing with anxious and aggressive dogs, I try to get to the source of the problem. We have to change the dog' emotional response to the trigger. If we just tell the dog to be quiet or ignore something or punish him for his behavior, we are simply putting a BandAid over the issue instead of getting to the source of it. At some point, the dog will not be able to continue to suppress the emotions and will have another outbreak. I want to make the dog feel more relaxed around other dogs or things that bother him. I want to relieve the anger and panic. 90% of aggression is fear or anxiety based. If we address fear and anxiety, we are going to be much more successful in helping the dog in the long term. 2. I have a very successful Puppy Program. It is based on impulse control or teaching the puppy patience. Puppy learns to compose herself to obtain what she wants from the owner. We not only work on basic behaviors but also teach the puppy to be polite when asking for attention, learn to give owners space and settle. We address no jumping and biting very early on. I teach my clients how to replace behaviors they do not like with the ones they prefer. The training program is very efficient and easy to follow. I am a positive but not a permissive trainer, and I do believe in having rules, but I prefer following through without unnecessary coercion. Nothing makes me happier than seeing my clients and their dogs lead harmonious lives together. All owners deserve a great dog and all dogs deserve great owners.
