Welcome to The Cooperative Dog
The Cooperative Dog is me, Vera Wilkinson CDBC, CPDT, KPA CTP. I am passionate about helping you to bring out the very best in your puppy or dog. Regardless of whether you have a puppy in need of socialization, are looking for basic to advanced training or have a dog with serious behavior problems, the dog training and behavior consulting help you need is here.
I will 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 using proven, positive reinforcement dog training methods.
Your dog will become a willing partner as a result of your understanding of how dogs communicate and learn.
