    Obedience Trainer/Behavior Consultant

    Milo never imagined becoming a dog trainer. She didn’t grow up with dogs, and she didn’t get her first dog until she was 21 when she rescued an elderly Chihuahua named Spunky. When the dog presented undesirable behaviors, Milo followed the advice of the only professional dog trainer she encountered: Cesar Milan. When Milo attempted a prescribed “alpha roll” on little Spunky, the dog was terrified, and it took Milo months to rebuild the trust required to be able to hold and groom the poor girl. After that experience, she decided that she would never use force on a dog again. From there, Milo experimented with reward-based training with her tiny dog until Spunky’s death a few years later. When she passed, Milo did not expect to get another dog, or do any more training.

    When offered an unexpected opportunity to train dogs through Petco a few years later, Milo jumped at the chance. Little did she know, when she learned how to communicate with dogs effectively, she would feel compelled to keep building her skills. Helping people understand their dogs better became her favorite thing to do, and the idea of pursuing any other career fell by the wayside. Even when not working with clients, she kept studying and practicing.

    She trained over 300 dogs in the last two years using force free training methods, fostered a reactive basenji mix so he could easily find his forever home, and expanded her research and knowledge on her own time by attending seminars and reading scientific studies. In the process, she discovered that she has a special passion for energetic working dogs, and the high intensity sports that they excel in. She is raising her first dog from puppyhood, a Bluetick Coonhound named Malcolm, and together they are training in obedience, nose work and tracking, and protection sports like IPO. Milo’s goal as a dog trainer is to promote relationship forward, force free dog training, especially as applied to working and sporting dogs who are still frequently subjected to harsh and coercive methods.

    Now Milo has expanded her dog training experience to running the Noble Beast’s North Denver location hosting the one of a kind Group Day Training Program for the dogs at that location and excited to be a part of this amazing dog training team! She is also the Canine Good Citizen instructor for Noble Beast and she plans to become a CGC Evaluator in 2019!
