Hi, I'm Vivi
Puppy Trainer in Honolulu, HI
Over 6 years of training experience
Hey, I'm Vivi I have made it my life mission to help you and your puppy. I graduted from Animal Behavioral College where I learned positive science-based methods. I continued my education with Karen Pryor Puppy Start Right Program. I now specialize in puppies as I have made it my mission to help puppy owners prevent behavioral problems. I keep my continuing education up to date by going to conferences, research, and working with other trainers.
Compassion and kindness are my principle ways of training. I strive to be your dog's best friend while helping them be best reach their full potential. Building trust with your loved one is always my first step. I do not use harmful tools to reach your goals.
I use Positive Reinforcement, Alternate Behaviors, Conditioning, Capturing, Lures, Alternate Behaviors, The Premack Principle, Extinction, and Intermittent Reinforcement, to help your dog learn faster and have longer lasting results.
There's No Place like Home
Have the luxury of private training inside your home.
Most behavior problems occur in the home.
Before I was a dog trainer I knew NOTHING about why my dog was exhibitng these behaviors.
I will give you all the information and help you need along every step of the process. I am not judgmental and have had the pleasure of working on many different problem behaviors.
As a dog owner and trainer I understand the sleepless nights, constant worrying, and stress that a dog can bring. I also know the love, help, and comfort a well behavied dog can bring. Let me help you and your loved one form a better bond.
