About Us

Hi All!
 

I just wanted to tell you a little bit about who I am and why I LOVE what I do!

I have been a dog lover my entire life. It all began with Mathew, who I found tied to a tree.  Knowing that we needed each other in our lives, I hid her in my room for three days before she was discovered by my mom. I was in luck, as my mom instantly saw the connection. Since then, my life has revolved around dogs.

I currently reside in Anchorage, Alaska with my husband, two wonderful children, and two dogs. Kona, a 4 year-old beautiful English black lab, and Rufus, a 5 year-old rescued goofy Saint Bernard, have both titled in Obedience: Beginning Novice and Novice and Rally: Novice and Advanced (CD), Canine Good Citizen, and Tricks titles.

I received formal training and certification through Bergin University of Canine Studies in 2018 for therapy, service, and mobility canines.

I am an American Kennel Club (AKC) certified trainer through Animal Behavior College (ABC). As such, I am able to administer the Puppy Star, CGC, CGC-Advanced, CGC-Urban, and Trick certifications.

I believe dog training should be FUN for the dog and their family. My motto is "I'm not here to train the dog, but their humans".

I love teaching and look forward to seeing you all in class!
