New Chardon training business aims to keep it positive

Cold Nose Companions is founded on the belief that positive methods yield positive results.

That's the mission statement of Carol Peter's new dog training business in Chardon.

Peter's doors opened March 22 to offer private, one-on-one in-home training sessions in Geauga, Lake and some surrounding counties.

The "Certified Professional Dog Trainer-Knowledge Assessed" said she discovered her passion as a more-than-eight-year shelter volunteer, when she saw countless dogs surrendered due to behavior issues that could have been addressed through proactive training and positive reinforcement techniques.

She went on to become a class instructor, private trainer and professional member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers, with particular attention to continued education.

"I focus my training practice on resolving problem behaviors, such as aggression, separation anxiety, possessiveness and protectiveness, and disruptive or destructive behaviors," Peter said. "But I also offer training in general obedience – the sort that constitutes good household manners – for puppies and adult dogs. I call it 'Dog Training for Family Dogs.'"

Peter is also a group class instructor with Canine University in Bedford Heights.

I have watched Carol in action on many occasions, with many types of dogs. She has so much knowledge and her rapport with dogs is amazing. Positive dog training is definitely the way to go.
