My love of dogs started when I was a child, I started showing in AKC fun matches and in 4-H.
After high school I spent over a year in NC interning at a large dog training facility. While there I was exposed to all types of dog training, I learned to train obedience, behavior modification, protection, search and rescue, narcotics and explosive detection and how to train people to be dog trainers.
After that I had a short stint teaching group classes at a small facility. From there I got a job training for Pat Nolan in Maryland, my main job was to e collar condition young and new gun dogs and client pet dogs ,teach private lessons for pet and gun dog training, start puppies and help with some detection dog training.
Since working in Maryland I have been working for myself, taking on in board dogs and teaching private lessons.
When I am not training dogs, I enjoy coffee dates with my husband, homeschooling and raising our 3 kids, kayaking, camping, and doing anything else outdoors with my family and Dutch Shepherd.
