An honor's graduate of Animal Behavior College and a certified professional dog trainer, I have been working with dogs for nearly 17 years, both professionally and as a volunteer. As a trainer, my goal is that you and your dog learn how to become a more confident team through a relationship built on mutual trust and understanding.
