MS, CPDT-KA

  • My goal is to bring your family more joy and less stress!
     

  • Clients really love my educational background. I've earned a Master's degree in dog and cat behavior. (This is what I've wanted to do since I was 12, I wanted to do it right!)
     

  • Your success is the best part of my job. I love seeing my clients' faces as they see their dog getting things right! (And all the emails and videos!)
     

  • My dogs and I have earned Canine Good Citizen certificates, a therapy dog certification, and AKC Trick Dog titles!
     

  • Get to know me better through FB, YouTube, or Instagram!

CPDT-KA, MAT

  • I love helping dogs and humans create a harmonious and happy relationship and seeing that bond grow!
     

  • I have a background in dog sports and I strive to bring that same team relationship to all clients and their dogs. It's amazing what our dogs can achieve when we set them up for success! 
     

  • My dog Luna and I have earned titles in Rally Obedience, Agility, Barn Hunt, Trick Dog and her Canine Good Citizen. Last summer we became a certified therapy dog team and we look forward to starting visits soon!
     

  • My puppy, Saga, is a rising star in Agility and has already tried out several sports before her 2nd birthday including Conformation, Barn Hunt, Fast CAT and lure coursing and earned her Novice Trick Dog. She earned her CGC at 6 months old.
     

  • Our rescue dog Nanook taught me a lot about having a dog with anxiety and has overcome his reactivity to compete and earn titles in Rally Obedience, Agility, and Fast CAT!
