    About Me

    Although I've lived with dogs my entire life, like many professionals, I became obsessed with animal learning and training when Eli, my high energy sidekick pictured here, joined our family almost 9 years ago. Wanting to solve our adolescent challenges and strengthen our relationship, I began attending expert training conferences and found a professional mentor. I then received certifications as a Pro-Dog Trainer from Absolute Dogs and graduated with distinction as a certified Dog Trainer from Catch Canine Trainers Academy.

    As a member of the the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (ADPT)  and the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants (IAABC), I am committed to using the least invasive and minimally aversive (LIMA) teaching principals ( click here to learn more about LIMA).  I am committed to teaching without force, fear or intimidation.  Please click here see the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior's latest statement on using only positive methods for dog training and behavior modification.
