A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME

I am a Certified Professional Dog Trainer-Knowledge Assessed (CPDT-KA) specializing in rewards-based, positive reinforcement dog training. I offer phone consultations and private in-home training sessions for puppies and dogs of all ages, breeds, and sizes. 

 

I have several years experience teaching a variety of group classes and conducting private in-home training sessions. I am also an American Kennel Club (AKC) Canine Good Citizen (CGC) Evaluator, and own and have trained therapy dogs. 

My passion is to teach people how to train their puppies and dogs to be happy, confident, well-mannered members of the family. My training methods are force-free and fun for both ends of the leash.
