Every website or YouTube video you watch in hopes of learning how to train your dog says something completely different! You are confused and frustrated in your search to simply learn how to stop your dogs unwanted behavior or get them to listen to you. That all stops here.
In order to have the most fulfilling relationship with your dog, you must understand what they need, not just what you want to give them. I will teach you all the elements of awesome human dog relationships and then work with you to get yours there.
Training is essentially teaching. With 20 years of HUMAN training and education experience, Socratic Canine creates a truly productive experience for clients and their dogs by specializing in teaching dog owners how to train their own dogs.
This brief and easy to read guide will teach you the basic information that should have come with your dog.
Choose from self paced online courses only or include Live online coaching options in both group and 1 to 1 settings, all from your home.
No, not really. You won't need to read their mind when you learn how to read the signals your dog has been already giving you. You simply haven't known how to read them!
You will be relieved to know most can be fixed almost immediately when you learn the scientific principles of behavior... which is what all of our training and instruction is based on!

Me, KD Mathews!
I want to be the first to say I completely know how you feel.
Because when I got my my first dog over 25 years ago I had no clue what I was doing. No matter what I did the dog wouldn't listen, pulled me on leash EVERYWHERE, and re- landscaped my parents yard several times over!
I loved my dog but I just didn't know how to communicate with him. The guilt of being frustrated and sometimes even angry at him ate me up inside because I knew ultimately it was me, not him.
I understand your struggle because I was there.
Socratic Canine is my way of helping all of you avoid the time, money, and most of all, frustration and confusion that I went through trying things that simply didn't work. I went through it all already, so there's no reason you have to!
You and your dog have so much yet to experience. Why send your dog away to someone else when you can enjoy the journey yourself?
