As many of my local customers know, I love dogs and often have my two Jack Russell Terrorists guarding the back of the store:
During a fitting, I learned my customer, Valerie Broadway, shared my passion for four-legged creatures and started a dog training business called “Canine Coaching Services, LLC.” Located in Chatham County but serving adjacent counties and cities, Valerie’s business provides in-home training sessions, vacation coaching, and even group seminars.
Promoting a relaxed, quiet environment filled with clear communication and positive reinforcement, Valerie aids dog owners in learning how to present themselves “in a position of leadership to their pets.” Some of her most common coaching requests involve aggression, puppy or obedience basics, hyperactivity, leash problems, lack of socialization, and house training.
In addition to her time as a veterinary technician, Valerie has years of experience working with animal rescues and shelters and has personally fostered hundreds of dogs in the last thirty years. She is a member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers and frequently attends workshops, lectures, and seminars to stay abreast of all the latest training and coaching techniques. Together, her family, including their eight dogs, five cats, and the occasional parrot, strive to meet their goal of “helping people and their pets live together better!”
If your pet pooch needs some behavioral help, you can reach Valerie by phone at (919) 542-4726 or by email at CanineCoachNC[at]yahoo[dot]com. Be sure to like her Facebook page too!
