Welcome!
AT NORTH FORK SCHOOL FOR DOGS,

Long Island dog trainer Asha Gallacher will show you how you and your dog can communicate through positive methods of reward based dog training.
She uses a common sense approach to dog obedience training by teaching owners to read their dog’s body language which will bridge the gap between human and dog communication.   By using positive reinforcement techniques like praise and rewards, rather than harsh punishments, you will get the most cooperation from your dog through love and respect.  Here is an article by the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior which explains why I use force free training.


North Fork School for Dogs offers open enrollment, 4 and 6 week classes* that will teach you a comprehensive understanding of dog training, socialization, dog manners and dog behavior.  

*(Please note:  fearful or aggressive dogs will not feel comfortable in group classes)  Private training designed to overcome your dog's fears is recommended.  For more information, visit the canine counseling page .


Got a new puppy or rescue dog and a bit overwhelmed?  Let North Fork School for Dogs help you by giving you a consultation to set you up for a successful relationship with your new friend.

At North Fork School for Dogs, Asha is extremely proud in providing you and your dog with the most humane, up-to-date and effective dog training methods.  She has delighted in attending workshops with some of the top trainers from around the world, like:  Ian DunbarSue SternbergNicole WildeGrisha StewartSuzanne ClothierPia SilvaniJohn Rogerson and Terry Ryan to name a few.
  
When looking for a dog trainer, find one who is familiar with reward based training methods.  For more information about this most popular type of training, please use this guide from the Association of Pet Dog Trainers to find the right trainer or behavior consultant.
