Beyond the wet nose and cuddles, pet ownership is based on mutual trust and communication, says certified dog trainer Maya Friedberg. “From puppyhood to the golden years, communicating with your dog involves more than just training—it’s a lifestyle,” she says.
As proprietor of Tails of Dog, Friedberg provides force-free, customized dog training and behavioral guidance in the home. She works with dogs and owners at all stages of their relationship, whether they are navigating through basic manners or a more serious behavioral issue. She says private sessions allow for a more engaging, educational and rewarding process as she guides clients and their dogs toward “choices rather than limitations.”
“I approach pet ownership as a holistic relationship based on past and present chapters of your journey,” she says. “Each dog and owner are at a different part of their adventure, but it’s never too late to start strengthening your bond. By using science based positive reinforcement techniques, learning for your dog becomes a game with possibilities rather than a routine with limitations, and you as the human can apply the training skills you learn to all aspects of your and your dog’s life.”
