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 training with a local trainer. That became a passion and ultimately led me to leave a 21 year career in corporate America to follow a new dream. A dream of helping other people learn how to enjoy their dog. Still involved in rescue work and supporting local rescue groups through training programs -- The K9 Coach was born in 2011.
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 spirit. I am also a life-long student of dog behavior, 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.
Nothing brings me more joy that helping a dog and his family --- well making taking pictures to give families memories of a lifetime..... Visit my photography website http://www.weeniedogphotography.com
