My niche is providing teams with a variety of outlets for high-energy, busy-brain, and/or reactive dogs to build confidence, work on manners while learning about canine fitness.

I have completed many supplemental courses in various areas such as: fear/anxiety/aggression, physiology, nutrition, kids & dogs, senior dog care, and have many on the go! (BAT and Certified Professional Canine Fitness Trainer along with a few other courses are in progress).
I teach a variety of FIT-Foundations group classes (manners, tricks and canine fitness fusion); a modified version of Puppy Start Right Preschool classes called PupFIT-Foundations; K9 Fit Club specific classes (human-canine fitness / canine-only fitness); and I work with individual clients for private coaching.
