I have been working with people and their dogs supporting the human-animal bond since 1996.  I’ve shared my life with dogs a lot longer.

The field of dog training has grown tremendously over the years.  Advancing from a reliance on force or pain as a method of compelling dogs, to striving for a clear understanding of the canine brain and how dogs learn. 

I have a BS in Education and an AS in Veterinary Technology — during which I focused on animal behavior and handling.  I hold a CPDT-KA, Certified Professional Dog Trainer—Knowledge Assessed Certificate.  Over the years I have had many wonderful opportunities to learn from seasoned professionals in the dog world.  I have continued to read, attend lectures and seminars both in person and through on-line classes.  I have worked with numerous rescues, breeders, veterinarians and other dog trainers.

Like most dog trainers I have shared my life with many dogs, my own, foster dogs and countless client dogs.  I have learned something from each.
