in Dog Massage
offers private and semi-private lessons in dog training. We
specialize in PAWsitive reinforcement methods and of course, we
incorporate our expertise, dog massage into our training program.
As with our dog massage (we teach you how to massage your dog), we
don't train your dog for you. We show caring dog owners how to
teach good manners to their dogs and pups.
Tomoko has received
certification in dog training from one of the dog training
institutes in the United States and has mentored with the
very best dog trainer in the D.C. metro area. Tomoko
continues to work with the new canine graduates of Pet Harbor
Rescue so that their transition into new lives can be smooth.
She also helps adopters with behavior issues and concerns. She is
currently very busy and can accept only a few new training clients
per month. If you are interested in our training
service, please give us a call. We would be very happy to
discuss your training needs and see if we can help your dog.
If we cannot help you, we'd be happy to refer you to one of the
local dog trainers who are reputable and experienced or help find
group training classes in your area.
note that while we believe canine massage can be greatly
beneficial to enhancing the health of your dogs, it is by no means
a substitute or replacement of veterinary medical care.
PAWsitive Touch provides canine massage lessons to caring dog
owners, but we do not offer massage therapy of any sort. If
you are looking for a canine massage therapist, we recommend that
you contact your vet for referrals.
