My life, ironically, started out with me being
absolutely terrified of dogs. It's funny where life
takes you! Now, I can't live my life to the fullest
without my four-legged children in my life!
I have been working as a dog trainer for the past 5 years and have applied it to all aspects of my life. I currently have my CCPDT-KA (Canine Certified Professional Dog Trainer - Knowledge Assessed) and CCDT (Certified Canine Dog Trainer), or CATCH Academy Certification. I am also Cat and Dog First Aid and CPR Certified. I am and will always be furthering my knowledge as a dog trainer. I want to give you and your dog(s) the best possible experience. I am especially working on gaining more experience with extremely reactive dogs and service dogs for all types of disabilities. I want to be able to help people and their dogs create a more enriched and loving relationship through communication!
I get immense joy in dog training, dog walking, and dog sitting. It always gives me goosebumps when the owner and the dog(s) get that lightbulb moment in training! Seeing the dog happy and tired after a productive walk is a sight that always brings a smile to my face. When I get the opportunity to dog sit, I am always grateful I get the chance to treat owners' pets as if they are my own; I love adding to my four-legged family!
I have my associates in Business Management and am working on my bachelors. I am a Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT), I am certified in Manual Lymphatic Drainage, and a practitioner of CranioSacral. Lymphatic Drainage helps the body rid its toxins and helps with the immune system, to find out more go to my Manual Lymph Drainage page.
CranioSacral Therapy helps with blockages in the CranioSacral system which runs throughout your spine and nerves, which align with your meridians. I have found that CranioSacral has helped with numerous problems including migraines, strokes, chronic pain, and more. I have personally experienced the difference CranioSacral has made on my own disabilities.
My previous Service Dog, Oliver, a King Charles Cavalier was a phenomenal companion and saved my life on more than one occasion. He is the reason I started in the dog industry. Oliver changed my life so much, I had to be a part of the industry that helps dogs and people communicate better to live in a happy home! I currently own a 6-year-old faded calico cat, M&M, and my current service dog, a Greater Swiss, Hyperion. These kiddos have given me so much joy and love! I want to bring that comfort, safety, and happiness to as many people and families as I can!
