"I learned so much during each session. Abbie is very knowledgeable, professional, and kind. You can tell she loves what she does. We were able to train at home, practice for a week or two, and then train again. I found it very effective for my dog and for my schedule. I highly recommend Abbie if you're looking for a dog trainer." Catrina P.

About Me

As a dog parent, I understand the challenges that come with raising and training a treasured lifetime companion. When I adopted my sled dog Eli as a puppy 12 years ago, I greatly underestimated the time and effort required during puppyhood.  I really could have used some support! During his adolescence, I was faced with some behavior challenges that required attention and understanding beyond my previous training experience. This led me down a path of intense research and education into dog behavior and training. I was eventually certified as a Masters Pro Trainer from Catch Canine Academy, and now utilize my knowledge and experience to teach others how to train their puppy and adolescent dogs effectively and mindfully. I am currently in a mentorship program at Pet Harmony and providing services through an enrichment framework.

I am committed to teaching you to train your dog without fear, force or intimidation. Read more about the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior's position on the importance of positive training here

Ongoing education enables me to integrate innovative and humane methods into my practice, promoting more effective and positive outcomes for both dogs and their guardians. I am committed to my ongoing professional education.
