About this pro

I am a Certified Professional Dog Trainer (CPDT-KA), an AKC Canine Good Citizen, Temperament, and Trick Dog Evaluator, AKC Scent Work judge and lead judge with Performance Scent Dogs. ​​​I'm passionate about dogs and education and offer the best possible training based on the most recent research in dog cognition.

Teaching has been my life's work; with a Bachelor's degree in  music education and a Master's degree in music performance, I was a music performer and educator for many years. I've been training dogs since 2004.

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

I interview the client to gather information about the dog and the issue, and then formulate a plan to help the client and their dog meet theior goals. I teach the dog and the client the skills needed to address the issue, and then assess progress, adjusting the plan as needed. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a degree in teaching from the University of Miami. I passed and continue to maintain the Certified Professional Dog Training title with continuing education by attending seminars, webinars, reading the latest in research, and consulting with colleagues. I am a life-long learner!

How did you get started in this business?

Teaching is not only what I do, it is who I am. After teaching humans :-) for many years, I decided to combine my love of teaching and my love of dogs, and became a dog trainer. I became fascinated with how they learn and sought to gain more education about that, the different breeds and learning styles.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

We recently held a Performance Scent Dogs trial. It's an  amateur version of the professional scent detection that is used in many applications. For more info on that, see 

Trials are great fun! The dogs love it and the handlers love it; it is a great outlet for a dog's energy, and meets their natural desire to sniff!
