Responsible, Reliable Dog Trainer

Pet care experience

Please note my areas only include Dyker Heights, Bay Ridge and some parts of Bensonhurst at the moment. I am a certified dog trainer and graduated December 2020 from the International School of Canine Psychology. I am also insured through Pet Care Ins. I helped my fearful dog Zoe become more confident through the use of force-free dog training. I also used to volunteer with local pet adoption event Love Wanted Pet Adoptions for five years, where it was my job to handle dogs of all different ages and sizes. I would work side-by-side with the other volunteers in order to help the dogs find good homes during the event. I excel at bonding with fearful dogs, and I have the utmost patience with them. I will never raise a voice to your dogs or force them to face their fears. I use only force-free and science-based training methods on my canine clients.

Safety, trust & environment

I treat my clients as if they were my own dog; I own a Potcake from the Bahamas that is very good with puppies and enjoys making friends, should they be in need of a furry pal.

Information Amanda F. would like to know about your pet

I would like to know if they're dog social, dog neutral, or dog aggressive before meeting your pup; I'd also like to know ahead of time if they have any fear issues or reactivity issues. For example, if they lunge and bark at squirrels or skateboarders. Plus if they are UTD on vaccines.

A typical day

I will take them for long walks around the perimeter of the golf course or for leisurely sniff walks at McKinley Park. If you'd like, I'd also teach them the beginnings of dog parkour, since I am working on that with my dog.
