I have always had a love for animals from a young age. Before being able to have my own dog to train, I began riding and training horses. In 2011, I adopted my own dog who came with a multitude of behavior problems, it was at this point I became interested in training dogs professionally. Since then, I have spent many years working with different dogs and trainers in a variety of situations, including teaching group classes, fostering rescue dogs, and rehabilitating dogs needing a forever home.
I completed a Dog Obedience Trainer/Instructor Career Diploma course in 2015 and hold a Pet Health Academy CPR and First Aid certificate. As a professional member of the Canadian Associate of Pet Dog Trainers I am committed to ongoing education and professional development. Attending several seminars and webinars each year keeps me up to date on current industry information and training techniques. I have trained my own dogs in many sports including Obedience, Rally, Confirmation, Nose Work, Agility, Tracking and Tricks.
I am devoted to providing the most effective, suitable solutions to my client’s dog training needs. By combining a unique skill set, I am able to offer a non-judgmental, positive approach to every training situation. I truly enjoys seeing people build trusting, cooperative relationships with their dogs in a fun, respectful way.
