My Training Philosophy is:
I use only force-free, science based training methods.

I am very proud to have earned my designation as a Certified Professional Dog Trainer, (CPDT-KA)  through the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers. www.ccpdt.org
This certification is the first nationally recognized and the only certification that is monitored and standardized for dog training professionals.

I have earned this credential by demonstrating my knowledge, skills, and experience.   I must continue to stay current and informed on knowledge and effective training techniques, equipment and earn continuing education credits to maintain my designation and adhere to a strict Code of Ethics.

Growing up, I always had a deep connection with animals, from bringing home every stray dog as a child, to walking and training friends and neighbor’s dogs. Our family always had a dog and even as early as 9 years old I was already training them. I found my niche and passion very early.

I am looking forward to meeting you and your canine companion.
