I have worked with the local shelters, helping with basic training and fear issues, which added in their adoption. Worked with a colleague teaching puppy classes, held at a local veterinary office. I enjoy working with therapy dogs. Before my American Bulldog passed away a year ago, we worked as a team with pet therapy.

What better way to build your relationship with your dog than through obedience training? Your dog will learn to understand what you’re asking for, and the behaviors you expect. Since we speak a different language from our dogs, learning how to communicate with them provides a relationship of trust, and the tools you will need to become your dog’s leader.

Providing one-on-one private training, we will work together to reach your goals. I will work in great length with you to assure that you have a clear understanding of teaching your dog each command.

Profile: I spent 4 of my 5 years at the Connecticut Humane Society working with the Behavior Modification Group of Volunteers helping with those dogs who might not have been the most adoptable.

We spent our time working on basic manners, social skills and as they stayed in the system, escalated to more specific behavior modification.

I espcially liked working with the shy dogs, those who just didn't trust yet and watch them thrive and become great dogs.

I recently worked with a private rescue group of dogs saved from death from Georgia to Connecticut. The puppies were adopted out quickly but the 3 dogs who needed more time for medical or behavior reasons spent weeks with us as a group where they learned commands very quickly and have all gotten adopted into their new homes.

At CHS I volunteer as a Shelter Dog Trainer. The program teaches basic manners, while trying keep dog’s stimulated in a shelter environment.

In January of 2007, I was fortunate enough to adopt a 10 month male Dalmatian named Squirt. Squirt was returned to the shelter twice. Since then Squirt has successfully learned not only obedience but also learned several tricks to assist in Fire Prevention Training, not only he can stay low, stop, drop and roll, he also gets lost. My mission is quite simple "An Educated Owner is An Educated Dog!"
