In January to September of 2014, I attended the Tom Rose School for professional dog trainers under the instruction of Kari Koch, and Dave Van Garderen. I took my learning and put it to practice with my own two dogs, and later found them great homes as dual purpose K9’s. After graduating the Professionals program, I accepted a job at Kennelwood Pet Resorts, in Saint Louis Missouri, where I met and worked with so many great people and dogs. The biggest learning experience for me is finding ways to work with the dog that’s in front of me. Aside from training dogs, I absolutely love working with their owners! It’s so rewarding to see happy and motivated owners that are excited about working with their dog.
