Kendra’s Critter Care provides positive reinforcement training and care for dogs and their owners. Kendra uses fun and effective science-based techniques called Pavlovian Classical Conditioning (learning by association) and Operant Conditioning (learning by consequences of behavior).


These techniques have made a profound impact on our understanding of canine behavior. Now with this understanding, we have the advantage of finding what motivates our dogs and pairing it with the behavior we want from them as well as helping them learn that their behavior results in consequences. 


Kendra's desire is to show you how your dog learns, communicates, and thinks, setting you both up for success step-by-step. This communication will establish good behavior and create a bond of trust to promote a more peaceful home for you and your pet.
