My path in life has led me to be a Canine Behavior Consultant and ABC Certified Dog Trainer.
I have studied human and canine psychology with an emphasis on interactive behaviors. I graduated from the prestigious Animal Behavior College and I now serve a role as a mentor and training the trainers while they earn their certification in this field.
I have worked with numerous breeds from the unique Chinese Crested, misunderstood Pitbull, highly intelligent and energetic Border Collie, and so many more.
I am a Canine Good Citizen (A.K.C. C.G.C.) evaluator through the American Kennel Club and a member of The Association of Professional Dog Trainers (A.P.D.T).
I have assisted with several National and local dog rescue groups to rehabilitate and find dogs permanent homes. This includes working with dogs in the shelter environment and fostering dogs in my own home. I also train service dogs and work with Train a Dog Save a Warrior Program (T.A.D.S.A.W.) training service dogs for veterans in need.
I believe solely on the science based “positive reinforcement training” techniques. I never use harsh or punitive in training.
I have been training for over 21 years teaching people to better understand and communicate with their dogs. I continually develop my skills with continuing education courses and seminars to remain current and to provide the best services for you and your dog.
