Are you ready for a dog training system that really works?  Let’s transform your Long Island dog into a relaxed, reliable, and civilized companion. 

Thinking Canine offers dog obedience and behavior training to families across Long Island, New York. I am a dual certified IAABC Dog Behavior Consultant and Professional Dog Trainer. I am highly qualified to work with all dogs, from those with aggression and anxiety to new puppies, to performance and working dogs. 

Is Your Dog Like Family?

My Dogs Are!

If you are anything like me, you love your dog. You want what is best for them. Choosing a good trainer isn’t easy, with so many options. 

I use humane and modern training methods only.  I DO NOT use shock collars or any kind of pain or fear to motivate my dogs to want to work with me.  My clients are dog lovers like me, who want to build a trusting relationship with their dogs.  It is my belief that pain and fear have NO place in dog training. You can trust that I will always have the best interest of you and your dog at heart. My training methods are effective and fun, and build a strong bond between you and your dog. You will feel comfortable and know you are helping your dog when you work together with me.  

Make a Change Today!

Dog’s have a mind of their own, and what’s on their mind might not be what’s on yours.  Owning a dog is not always easy, but it can be with a little help. I will help you! With over 10 years of professional experience and hundreds of happy families helped, I am passionate about my clients. 

OBEDIENCE

Whether you have an old dog with bad habits or a new dog who needs an education, every dog needs manners! We cover the basics, and beyond.

AGGRESSION

Aggression is the most stressful issue an owner can face. Let’s work together to change your dog’s behavior for the better and make them a safer companion.

PUPPY TRAINING

Start off on the right foot. Set your new puppy up for success to have that perfect adult dog. We cover house-training, socialization, and manners plus.

FITNESS

A tired dog is a happy dog. A healthy dog is a happy dog. A fit dog is a dog who wins at agility. Fitness is essential for all dogs, from the old to the young to the athlete.

OUR WAY

We use effective, clear, humane, proven methods. Your dog will WANT to work for you because they love you, not because they fear you. It works!

Cat Behavior

Cats are family too! We work with cats on behavior issues, and training. Using positive reinforcement training, let’s work together to help your kitty.

GIA IS AWESOME!

She has a great communication style with pets and owners and her recommendations for our dog worked like a charm.  Within a week, after incorporating some of Gia’s suggestions into our daily routines at home (which were effortless and took little to no time), our dog’s behavior had been powerfully impacted.
