Heike has trained dogs since 2001, when a shy, stray puppy changed her life. The puppy quickly went through an entire array of obedience classes, allowing him to gain self-confidence.
Heike soon became a volunteer at the local animal shelter, teaching obedience classes. In 2009, Heike decided to make dog training her main profession. In addition to making house calls and teaching at her own dog training facility, she continues to teach at the Kentucky Humane Society, as well as at the Feeder's Supply stores.
