Animal Behavior, Dog Behavior and Training

Building Brilliant Relationships 
Between Humans and Canines


Offering in-person services in Las Vegas 

Virtual services via Zoom offered Worldwide

Eileen Koval, CDBC, CBCC-KA, CPDT-KA, MSc brings unmatched expertise to the Las Vegas Valley working with clients to reach their goals with difficult behavior and training cases that owners believed may be beyond help.  

She goes beyond traditional dog training and obedience by looking at the whole dog to identify the "why" behind problematic behaviors.  This enables her to craft cutting edge, personalized solutions unique to you and your dog's needs.  Many of her clients have gone through multiple trainers and veterinarians who simply thought solutions did not exist.  Eileen's rounded expertise and unique approaches have brought her attention as a leader in the animal behavior and training industry, speaking at international conferences, presenting workshops worldwide, and working with trainers, veterinarians, and clients globally.  

All of this starts with an initial Zoom appointment to discuss their health, social, training, and behavioral histories to learn more about them as a whole and identify the causes of the behavior issues, triggers and exacerbating factors, motivations, your goals, their training needs, etc.  While she works both virtually and in-person (after the initial appointment), the virtual aspect offers some additional advantages to in-person training: teaching skills with a demonstration dog; observing and training dogs without subjecting them to the stress or overstimulation that comes with having a visitor; and maintaining safety with aggressive dogs until any necessary safety protocols can be set.  The information gathered in this appointment will inform the unique behavior modification protocols that are customized to meet your goals.  Training and solutions will begin during that first appointment to move forward toward your goals.  You will also better understand your pet's behavior and deepen your relationship with your dog. 


Eileen will work with veterinarians, groomers, physical therapists, and other pet professionals as needed -- including providing referrals -- to help you and your pet reach your goals. 


Behavior modification and training should improve animal welfare and the dog-human relationship, not compromise it.  

We do NOT use shouting, fear or intimidation methods in our training.  We do NOT use painful tools such as shock, prong/pinch collars, noise aversives, choke chains, or leash/collar corrections.

"I have a very anxious dog that is almost 4yo. We have tried absolutely everything under the sun for him with multiple trainers and I honestly thought we would just have to live with his anxiety and the bad behaviors that went with it. I contacted Confident Canines LLC from 8 time zones away and Eileen worked with me to help my dog. We saw a major change in him in just a few weeks. After 2 months, my dog has improved so much that he is doing things I never thought we would be able to do and is starting to enjoy the life we can provide for him. You don’t think that something as simple as sitting outside instead of constantly patrolling would make such a difference but it does. I highly recommend reaching out to her ❤️ Thank you Eileen for changing our life and allowing us to help our problem child live his best life with us."
