I am an educator at my core, and I believe that great training nurtures a teaching and learning relationship between humans and animals. I adopted my first rescue, Yera an Australian Cattle Dog, as a PhD student and became intrigued with training her. A few years later, I met my wife who had a rescued bully-breed with some behavior issues. We tried to integrate our dogs, but we needed professional help. Through that encounter, I found a mentor and friend who opened my heart and head to a career as a dog trainer.
I completed The Karen Pryor Academy dog foundations course, and then I graduated with distinction from the KPA Dog Trainer professional course. Karen Pryor Academy is an international education program that administers a comprehensive assessment of a student’s technical ability and hands-on skill teaching pet owners and training pet dogs. I am Committed to providing the most effective, convenient solutions to clients’ dog’s training needs. I avidly pursue ongoing continuing education and professional development by attending several seminars per year and keeping current on industry literature.
I have been a professional educator for over a decade with an earned PhD in Ethics and Education. By combining my expertise I am able to tailor training lessons for you and your dog.
