Welcome to The Cooperative Dog and, practical training for everyday life.
You’ve come to the right place. Deep down everyone already knows that dogs are cooperative by nature– why else would so many people admit so readily that they understand that it is they who need training? When you sign up for a dog training class, private lesson, behavior consultation or dog behavior seminar with me, Vera Wilkinson, you’ve taken the first step on the way to helping your dog to become a well-adjusted and well-behaved member of the family. In nearly two decades, I have worked with several thousand dogs and helped their owners to successfully do the work that it takes to turn a dog into a willing partner in the process of learning how to live with people.
I teach you not just how to train your dog but to understand your dog’s behavior and world view. You will learn why your dog does or does not do what you ask and know exactly what to do about it. All skills will be taught by employing non-confrontational and proven, positive reinforcement dog training methods.

I look forward to helping you and your dog(s) to enjoy what precious time you have together!
