I love dogs. Every day the dogs around me bring joy to my life and I want to share that with you. A good dog is a happy dog, and a happy dog means that everyone can relax and have fun together. I love going on adventures with my dogs and enjoy helping clients train their dog to be well-mannered so that they can enjoy time together too! Throughout my endeavors, I have found that with a little bit of work you can accomplish anything you want to with your dog.


I strive to stay up to date on the best training methods. I graduated from the Karen Pryor Academy and have committed myself to be a lifetime student. I am active with continuing education, ensuring that I can provide my clients with the most humane and effective training methods that are backed by science. 


When I am not training other people's dogs, I can usually be found spending time with my Alaskan Malamutes. We train and compete in Obedience, Rally Obedience, Trick Dog Titles, Fast Cat, Conformation Showing, Weight Pull, and Nose Work. I am a member of the Alaskan Malamute Club of American, an Admin and Co-Founder of Georgia Urban Mushing, and a board member for the United States Federation of Sleddog Sports (USFSS). We train in canicross, bikejoring, scootering, skijoring, and sledding. During the spring and summer months, we all enjoy paddleboarding, canoeing, hiking, and camping.
