I can’t remember a time I haven’t been training and helping dogs. I began volunteering at animal shelters in elementary school and teaching dogs fun tricks and basic obedience to help them get adopted. As I got into high school I joined FFA which was an immense help to giving insight to animal behaviour and handling skills! After high school I worked with a few Service Dog programs before venturing into creating my own training program for all varieties of dogs…and other animals on occasion too! I am also taking classes in Kinesiology and Chiropractics to become a certified Animal Rehab specialist.
I currently own 3 personal dogs (626, 1oh1 and Cinder-Ella…I have a Disney theme going!); all of them working and sport competition dogs. We compete in just about anything and everything from protection sports to agility and everything in between! 1oh1 was also one of the models in a training book!
I also occasionally take in shelter dogs and help them get some training and find suitable homes whether that means just pets or in a specialty field of work. One of my rescue dogs even starred in a movie while he was training with me!
I love finding what makes the dog happiest and working with them to achieve our goals of becoming a well balanced and mannered pet. I work with all types of dogs from fun puppies looking to get a great start to extreme aggression cases. Dogs need structure and my goal is to help them along that path and ensure the owners have the tools and knowledge to keep their pup happy and safe!
