I have been working and training dogs since I was 12 year's old. My mom trained Huskies and Malamutes and I learned alot from her and then continued my education from there. I am a 52 year old mother of one beautiful daughter and 4 grandchildren. I walk everyday with my dog friends and spend alot of time at the SPCA here in Reno helping the Behavioral Manager temperment test the new arrivals to make sure they get the right home. This is my great love to help people find the patience to work thru or teach new things to there pets.
When I got Spunks out of her Kennel today at SPCA she seemed so frightned but after a few minutes together she was back to her cute loving self and that is the greatest pleasure to see the happy in a dogs eyes or in a human owner when they see there pet successfully complete something. There can be success with Positive Reinforcement and love. I was contracted to PetSmart for about 5 years and in that time learned classroom training is not always the answer as some important problems take place in our own homes.
This is why I am mobile so I can help you in the environment you are comfortable with and your pet is comfortable. Where there is a Will there is a Way and with me at your side you will have confidence and help. I am a United States Army Veteran and give discounts for Vets, handicapped, and new adoptees. I am on time and prepared and you can always Depend on me!
No matter what your needs are I am here to listen and assist you with your needs. I am prompt and organized. I will listen if that is all you need or I will go the extra mile to help.
I have had so many people tell me their problems are not in the classroom its that dog next door that drives my dog crazy or we just moved and now he/she is potting on the carpets etc. No matter what it is or how dumb you think it is I am here for you..We can do this!!
My goal and deepest desire is to keep pets with there familys or owners. Lets try to find a way to work thru the issue first. I love what I do and will try my hardest to help using Positve Reinforcement.
