I have been working with and training dogs since 2014. I am a certified American Kennel Club Canine Good Citizen Evaluator, certified Trick Dog Instructor, and Professional level member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers. When my husband and I got our first dog together she came with a lot of baggage, so we decided to take classes with her. Taking her from a troubled dog to a beloved family member, titled Trick Dog and agility dog who was confident in herself sparked a desire to help other dogs and their owners. I fell in love with watching a dog's mind open up as it learns, and helping people have the best dogs they can. I firmly believe that especially working with animals, there is always more to learn. Methods continually evolve as we discover more about how dogs themselves process and learn. I have and continue to attend many seminars and workshops learning all I can about canine behavior, training, and nutrition.
Currently I reside in Racine with my husband and our three dogs, Shih Tzu's Pumpkin and Cinnabun and Labrador Bear, as well as two cats Cosmo and Spaghetti. I also have two horses that take up most of my free time outside of the house. The dogs keep us busy as well, Pumpkin and Cinnabun are training in Nose Work and obedience. Bear has titled in Nose Work 1 and has experience through Elite Nose work, though he is mostly retired now. He has also been Hunt trained and loves doing anything involving water.
