Viviane is the founder of PumpkinPups Dog Training. She has been training dogs and their family's professionally since 2005.
Her practice covers a wide range of dog ages, breeds, and training needs, starting from the basics of getting new puppies and their family's off to a great start, to adolescents dogs who have suddenly begun to act like teenagers, to dogs of all ages with fear and reactivity problems. Whether you see Viviane in a group class or at a private session in your home, you will find that she enjoys the challenge of finding just the right combination of the tools in her training toolbox to create a plan that will help each dog and their people reach their behavior change goals.
Viviane views her role as a trainer as to coach her clients, to help them become as efficient and skilled as trainers of their own dogs as she can. Viviane is your guide in learning training skills and gaining knowledge about dog behavior that will serve you for the lifetime of your canine companion.
Regardless of behaviors involved, all training methods are gentle, humane and fair to both the dog and his/her people.
