I have had dogs my entire life. I became involved in dog rescue in 2002.
Through rescue work I developed great skills for working with
challenging dogs. Taking on an aggressive foster lead to me participate in intense dog trianing with a local trainer. That became
a passion and ultimately led me to leave a 21 year career in corporate
America to follow that new dream. Still involved in rescue work and
supporting local rescue groups through training programs -- The K9
Coach was born
I won't tell you I have seen it all, because I never cease to be amazed at situations humans have put animals in. But I'm also amazed at animal behavior, resiliency, and spirt. I am also a life-long student of animals, people and techniques to bring the two together in a happy K9 family.
I attended the National K9 School for Dog Trainers and today, I'm living the dream as a Certified Dog Trainer -- spending time out doors playing with dogs; teaching them new behaviors and skills to be a happier part of your family. It is a great reward to see a family overcome issues they are experiences with their dog & start to experience the joy dogs can bring. It's even more rewarding to prevent those issues by starting a puppy off on the right foot!
I have 4 rescue dogs of my own Lexie, Huey, Howie and Vinnie. I also usually have a foster or two hanging around as well.
I am currently working on my certification for International Association of Animal Behavioral Consultants. (IAABC)
