I have a huge respect for animals and humans alike and I am truly passionate about helping animals and their people be the best they can be! I began training dogs in 2006 and have worked with animals professionally for 20+ years doing walking/exercising/structured playdates and group hikes. I enjoy using all-positive reinforcement and am excited to help others get the results they are looking for as quickly as possible especially using my skills as a Certified Clicker Trainer through Karen Pryor Academy. I am also a certified Tellington TTouch Practitioner. TTouch is a technique that helps dogs overcome anxiety and fear, and provides a unique learning opportunity using specialized equipment, groundwork, and touches. In addition, I am a certified Matrix Energetics Practitioner which allows me to use energy to help shift animals energy. Frequently I volunteer with dogs at the Family Dogs New Life Shelter.
