I have always had a love for animals and a particular interest in working with dogs. My interest in becoming a Certified Professional Dog Trainer was inspired by overcoming behavioural hurdles with my Shepherd mix, Shade, 10 years ago. I enjoy working my dogs in a variety of avenues such as Agility, Obedience, Nosework, Rally-O & Tricks.
I believe in building a strong relationship and bond with your dog through structure, mutual respect and a lot of fun!
