I started "training" at a young age. My dad died when I was five, and I didn't have any siblings in the home. It was just my Doberman Milo, and me. I spent all my free time playing games, and training with her the best any child knows how. I had to stand on a chair when getting her to beg. I shared a special connection and bond with her, and that spread to all animals. My love for dogs has continued to grow throughout my life, blooming into something much more than I ever thought.
I have always found a passion in helping people, as well as dogs. When I found out behavioral science is cross species, I decided to explore both of my areas of interest. I have a bachelor's degree in behavior science, my CPDT-KSA certification, I'm an AKC evaluator and I'm working toward my fear-free certification as well as membership and behavior consultancy certification through IAABC.
Networking is a vital part of dog training. I am lucky enough to work with some of the top trainers in Utah. The beauty of this is if I don't offer a service it is likely that I know a reputable pet professional who does.
