I am an Animal Behavior College Certified dog trainer. I have worked in the animal industry for years, working at Petsmart for 2 years out of High School.
I started the ABC program in 2013,when my husband was stationed at Fort Benning for the military.
I had a lot of free time and have always really enjoyed interactions with mine and other dogs. My dog, Liberty has provided a lot of comfort for me through 3 deployments, and she is my inspiration to specialize in CGC (Canine Good Citizen) training.
I'd like to have both she and my shepherd puppy, Kane, registered therapy dogs so we can visit hospitals and nursing homes to spread the joy they give to me and my friends and family.
I eventually would like to be a trainer in my area who can spread awareness for therapy dogs and help train other people's dogs to be evaluated by PetPartners and help share the comfort and relaxation dogs bring to us.
I have a very good knowledge of dog behavior thanks to ABC and can't wait to spread the knowledge with others and help shape dogs into contributing, sweet, members of society!
