Thank you so much for taking the time to explore my site. To tell you a bit about myself, I am a Certified Professional Dog Trainer who has been training and working with dogs since 7 years old. After getting off the school bus I would then do trick training with neighborhood dogs all evening until forced to come home for dinner. I did this throughout grade school and middle school, eventually focusing my studies on more complex behavioral issues within the canine species during college while working as a vet tech assistant. Volunteering my services at the local rescues and SPCA is where I was able to focus on canine behavioral health and rehabilitation for dogs suffering from anxiety and aggression in order to develop my own philosophy and methodology. After earning my bachelor's degree and spending years studying world renowned behavior specialists/trainers such as Laura VanArendonk Baugh, Karen Pryor, and Dr. Ian Dunbar, I finally opened my own training practice in 2013.
I believe that (just like our dogs) we can always learn more! I continue to further my education by attending seminars and conferences relevant to my field of passion: all things behavior and training. I believe that since science is always progressing so should my education.
I also rehabilitate dogs and kittens for local rescues including the SPCA and the Cavalier Rescue USA. I live with my pack of 5 along with my fabulous husband.
