About Me

I have worked with dogs and other animals all of my life, from my  earliest years helping train our family pets and dozens of other dogs  over time, to volunteering at rescues and shelters, working as an emergency vet. tech and lab assistant and  studying (both formally and informally), cat and dog behavior,  psychology and genetics. My many animal and human mentors continue to teach me daily to better listen, communicate and be patient. 


My formal education through Animal Behavior College has given me a  much deeper understanding of dogs and their behavior, taught me how to  focus my skills and abilities to be an effective trainer as well as provided me with the opportunity to experience first  hand the difference professional dog training makes in the relationship  between a dog and their owner. 


I am a member of the APDT. I am a volunteer  behaviorist/ trainer for Desert  Harbor Doberman Rescue azdoberescue.org , a non profit organization. I am a recommended  trainer by  Doodlendanes.com.  My goal is to help you and your pets enjoy your years together in harmony. 

If I am not the trainer for you please keep looking. Try: Animal Behavior College or Thumbtack
