I began learning everything I could about dog training because as a kid I saw our family dog forced to live outside with no indoor privileges because he wasn’t housetrained. I couldn’t walk him because he would always slip out of his harness. I love dogs and I wanted to ensure that all dogs I ever had as an adult would always be welcome indoors, on walks, on vacation, etc. I wanted a member of the family. And so, I learned, became certified through APDT’s program (though now they only certify trainers in the veterinary field), and taught group classes and private lessons. My dog lived in the house with me, and accompanied me to all group classes as my demo dog. I was in heaven!
Then I was in a vehicle accident, and I was in recovery for a very long time. My very well-trained dog became my service dog as I re-learned how to walk and navigate the world. My learning of dogs, dog training, and respect for dogs as allies, grew and grew.
Eventually I healed enough to go back to school and get my Bachelor of Social Work degree and spent several years working in K-12 education until I finally came full circle and again just want to work helping people and dogs to be able to get the most enjoyment of their time together.
I will be taking my CPDT-KA certification on March 25, 2023, so that I will again be certified, and I am also taking the Karen Pryor Academy Professional Dog Trainers course beginning this May in order to continue my education.
Through all of that, I will continue working to show dogs and their people that training is fun! When you put your ego away and focus on understanding each other, everything falls into place and a world of shared wonderful experiences opens up for both of you.
We highly recommend Smart Dog Pet Training! We wanted to start our new Mini Australian Shepherd puppy off on the right paw. 😉 Working with Smart Dog Pet Training was amazing, and helped us work through some of the new puppy behaviors with gentle, positive reinforcement. If I ever had a question, it was answered immediately and they always went above and beyond in everything they did. Thank you!
