Veronica was able to help me with a dog I had adopted who had been in the home of animal hoarder. The dog is a "fearful" dog, afraid of most humans but comfortable with dogs, who needed a lot of help to overcome his fears. Veronica's understanding of his behavior and her ability to provide workable techniques for training and socializing him made this a successful adoption for me. She uses reward based training methods that work when you apply them consistently over time. She also recommends books and articles to help you get educated, and those helped a lot. It's six months later and the dog and I together have made tremendous progress that I wouldn't have been able to achieve on my own.

Veronica Sanchez, the owner of Cooperative Paws, is an absolutely phenomenal animal behaviorist and dog trainer. I went to her to help me learn how to prepare my very reserved German Shepherd for his Canine Good Citizen test and to work with him on his fearful reaction to strangers, primarily men. She taught me various counter-conditioning methods to help him overcome his timidity around men as well as overall socialization techniques; we also worked on improving his response to some basic obedience protocols, especially his recall. She uses positive reinforcement as her primary and preferred training method, and I felt very as ease using the techniques, which were specifically tailored to my dog's personality, that she suggested. I am happy, my dog is happy, and I now feel confident that we will reach our goals of CGC and, ultimately, Therapy Dog certifcation. I absolutely recommend Veronica if you are looking for someone to work one-on-one with you and pet.
