We can address everything from house training to aggression, and help you and your pup live the life you dreamed of, together.

Training Philosophy

My training philosophy is centered around the fact that animals learn most effectively when they are rewarded for good behavior rather than punished for bad behavior. I strive to create a positive and nurturing learning environment for dogs, cats, horses and all of my animal clients, using rewards such as treats and play to encourage desired behaviors.

My ultimate goal is to strengthen the bond between pets and their guardians, help them communicate effectively and build trust through positive reinforcement training, all while creating results that will last a lifetime.

Testimonials

"Hiring Danielle was the best thing I ever did.  I had tried so many different trainers and approaches with no success, but with Danielle it never felt like work. Training was so enjoyable and rewarding. Phoebe wouldn't let any human approach her, but after the first visit I had a better hope for the future. Now we have a stronger bond, easier walks with minimized reactivity, and confidence!"

- Becky F.

"Danielle is an educated, experienced and compassionate dog trainer and caretaker. Dogs staying with her will receive personalized attention and meticulous safe keeping. I have no doubt that Danielle is the best choice for your canine companion's boarding and training needs. Enjoy your vacation knowing your dog is enjoying theirs!"

"I would highly recommend Intrepid Animal Learning for anyone looking for animal training/behavior modification or boarding. Danielle is knowledgeable, experienced, and most importantly, effective. I have used Intrepid for training and boarding of my own pets and frequently refer to her on a professional level. Her empathy and kindness toward all species is evident in her interactions, care, and training methods. She is the best!"
