Tania Lanfer is an animal trainer who loves to geek out about the science of animal learning and dog behavior! She enjoys discovering the reasons behind why dogs do what they do, and is dedicated to helping people and dogs understand each other better. She has worked with numerous dogs over the years, including shelter dogs and competing sport dogs. Check out her extensive education list.

Why choose Cannon Dog Training?

  • Our methods are based on behavioral science.

  • We use reward-based methods; we do not use fear, pain, or intimidation to deal with behavioral problems.

  • We value training that is fun and believe that it should be rewarding for both handler and dog!

  • We’re experienced with common behavior issues like leash reactivity, resource guarding, impulse control, fearful and shy dogs, dogs with handling sensitivities, separation anxiety, among others.


Have me see your dog 2 or 3 times per week for a special rate! Your dog will be “my dog” and I will teach her all the things I think are relevant! This is a special and exclusive program designated for owners who would like to have a top notch care for their pups. I will take them to different places, teach basic manners, dog sports, socialize them, do nail maintenance, and enrich their lives. Basically, I will be their tutor, their long term friend and handler. We are going to be in close contact about their needs and meeting from time to time to transfer what we learned with you!

What Clients Are Saying
