My true love for dogs started at a very young age when my dad brought home Romeo, my first dog. He was a nine month old hound mix who lived a wonderful life until the ripe old age of 14. Romeo taught me compassion, commitment, joy, trust and respect.
I work with what I like to call the “naughty” dogs, those who suffer from some of the most difficult behavior issues out there e.g. aggression, fear, impulse control and resource guarding. My goal through positive reinforcement training is to help you better understand what your DOG is trying to tell you and to help YOU better understand your dog, while having fun.
I am a Fear Free certified trainer, a graduate of Catch Dog Trainers Academy Master Class, a Mentor Trainer for Catch Dog Trainers Academy, and completed the Aggression in Dogs Course under Michael Shikashio.
