I am an avid dog trainer, dog sports enthusiast, and proponent of reinforcement-based training - teaching your dog what behaviors you WANT, not just what you don't want. My husband and I have two Nederlandse Kooikerhondjes (Bones and Beowulf) that we enjoy training and competing with in dog sports: agility and Barnhunt. I am independently certified by the accredited Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers (CCPDT).

I previously taught agility classes at Susan Barrow's Doggrrrcise Agility, LLC. I am also an active member the Kooikerhondje Club of the USA (AKC parent club). I previously assisted A Path 4 Paws rescue group as a trainer/consultant, and volunteered at the Nevada SPCA.
