I am an experienced Master Dog Trainer, group instructor, event speaker. 


My teaching style brings a creative flare to dog training. I teach a balanced approach to dog training, bringing success within reach for the average pet owner as well as other professionals and dog sport handlers alike. Making dog training fun for both dog and handler is an important part of every class that I teach. 


Driven by a passion to help people, every class has my personal and professional touch as a part of me is infused into the lives of every successful student. My experience with training dogs has been a life long journey. As a child, I began training dogs with the loving guidance of my greatly skilled father & grandfather. As an adult, I've professionally trained people and their dogs for well over 20 years.


My training experience includes a variety of breeds, people, personalities and temperament types. :) Most certainly equipped with the right tools to help handlers tackle what ever challenge they may be facing, my sites are firmly set on seeing each student surpass even their own expectations. 


Having a solid understanding of today's training techniques as well as age old, tested and tried techniques, helps to better accommodate the vast number of behavior challenges out there, as well as better suites a variety of life styles and personal preferences.
