"Catch your dog doing something right!" Diane Rich
Welcome to SpokesDog.com! I have been training dogs and people for over 20 years and love what I do for a living. It is my passion. My training approach integrates the dog’s mind, body and spirit and my basic training philosophy is “catch your dog doing something right.” I enjoy teaching people how to communicate more effectively with their family dog to alleviate frustration on both ends of the leash. I believe loud is not leadership so my techniques incorporate what I call whisper training. My training programs include reality training which not only builds the dog’s confidence around life’s surprises but help teach the dog to listen around various distractions away from home or a classroom environment. In addition to dog training, I love taking my registered therapy dogs to hospitals and nursing homes where we try to bring comfort to those individuals who may benefit from the healing powers of a dog offering unconditional love.
