I’m an Air Force veteran and have always loved teaching people. One day a friend of mine said, “You love to teach, and you love dogs. When are you going to put it together?” I finally did. I’ve been training dogs for 5+ years. I’ve found my passion!!
My qualifications and training time include over 10,000 hours of classroom instruction experience, 100+ group classes for families, training 45+ rescue dogs in my home helping them get adopted , and helping 20+ dog trainers earn their certifications.
I’ve also studied Karen Pryor and Jean Donaldson. Their theories of behavior modification and rescue dog training have had a huge influence over my style and technique.
I work with all types of dog behaviors and ailments. From working with dogs in basic obedience training, destructive and aggressive behaviors, and dogs that are disabled; deaf, blind, and/or missing a limb.
