My dog training journey began over 5 years ago with my first dog Mona. I got her from a shelter I volunteered at while in college. She was perfect in so many ways but came with her fair share of issues. She was returned once already due to separation anxiety issues and had some pretty intense dog reactivity. While I had a few dogs growing up none of them had issues like hers. So I began to immerse myself in the dog training world.
At the core of my training approach is the desire to help each dog become the best version of themselves. Each dog has inherent potential that can be suppressed for a variety of reasons. I believe that it is my job to show each dog the path that allows them to reach that potential. I cannot force them down that path, but I can light the way and guide them to their best self.
