What year did you begin serving pets?

2010 in private practice, but I've been training dogs since 1979.

How did you hone your craft?

I have been studying animal behavior since prior to my 10th year. Starting training our family pets, dog and hamsters at 10 & 11. Helped train other peoples dogs through college, but didn't turn professional until I ran out of things to train my dog to do. Went to school to teach my dog film/TV production and became a trainer at that school, then a private practice dog trainer since then.

What tip would you give pet parents for working with animals that you've learned as a pro?

Put aside your desires and focus on what your dog really needs from you.

What is one thing you want pet parents to know about you? It can be whatev-fur you'd like!

I am compassionate about your situation if you are struggling, and I will be a no-nonsense guide on your next steps. I use humor to help you remember and colorful analogies that help you learn or understand.
