About YAY dog!

YAY dog!'s mission is to help people live successfully and happily with their dogs. Clare Reece-Glore, experienced dog trainer and owner/operator of YAY dog!, accomplishes this mission by providing individual coaching (for people) and training (for dogs). The YAY dog! mission is driven by Clare's belief in three things:

  • It's important for people to understand what their dogs are trying to communicate. This is why Clare emphasizes teaching clients how to read canine behavior.

  • Your dog is special, and the relationship you share is unique. For this reason, Clare tailors her approach to the specific needs of your friendship. Her sessions revolve around kind, collaborative, and resourceful strategies.

  • In order for your dog to be happy in the real world, training needs to take place in the real world. Clare provides multiple strategies to help solve behavior issues. This helps your dog adapt to everyday environments, which are often distracting and unpredictable.
