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. 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 three Alaskan Malamutes. We train and compete in Obedience, Rally Obedience, Trick Dog Titles, Fast Cat, Conformation Showing, Weight Pull, and Nose Work. We also are active members of our local Dog Mushing community. We train in canicross, bikejoring, and skijoring. During the spring and summer months, we all enjoy kayaking, canoeing, hiking, and camping.
