    CPDT-KA – Obedience Trainer/Behavior Consultant

    I have been an animal lover ever since I can remember. I have had pets my entire life including guinea pigs, hamsters, ferrets, dogs, cats, lizards, frogs, and birds. Even though I loved all of my pets with my whole heart, my dogs always held a special place in my heart.

    As a kid, I dreamed of becoming a veterinarian, but once I started college, I went a different direction, majoring in history and secondary education. My junior year in college I found out my longtime best friend, my 16-year-old Bullmastiff Tyche was diagnosed with cancer and I had no choice but to help him over the rainbow bridge and let him go. My heart ached and I had no pets for 2 years after his death. The year I started teaching I took a chance and adopted the first dog of my own, Rufus at 12 weeks old. From that moment on, dog training became my world. I took great pride in training up my very own dog and had a blast doing it. By 5 months old he was off leash under voice control, heeling like a pro and absolutely loved performing for people, showing off his tricks. This not only gave him confidence but gave me confidence in my ability to work with dogs.

    As my connection and bond with Rufio grew, I started to truly understand how important the emotional side of things was. I quickly realized he had severe separation anxiety and tried doing the training to fix it. For Rufio, it was too late for training to have a full effect and I had to put him on medication. After going through that long, heartbreaking process with Rufio I did all the research I could on separation anxiety, which kick-started my desire to help dogs with anxiety, fear, and trauma driven behavioral issues.

    I moved to Colorado from Michigan in 2016 and started working at a dog daycare/boarding facility, where I worked with large groups of dogs and became a dog trainer. I trained for this daycare facility for 2 years while getting my CPDT-KA certificate and therapy dog handler certificate. Over the course of these 2 years, I worked with over 245 clients, the majority of which had behavioral issues due to lack of socialization, traumatic experiences, anxiety, and fear. Working with this group of dogs and their parents quickly became my passion, and I enjoyed nothing more than watching these parents and their dogs bond, grow together and experience a much more harmonious life together as they went through their training. The night and day difference in the dogs AND their parents between the start and end of their training was incredible. I found a way to combine my love for teaching and leading humans and my love for dogs, and the result is the most rewarding career path I could have ever imagined.

    I continue my journey as a dog trainer with my 4 pets at my side. I have a 6 year old cat named Jasmine aka Jazzy Mittens (as she is polydactyl), a 12 year old English Pointer mix named Coco Bean who I adopted at the age of 10 and trained up to be my service dog, a 4 year old Lab/Rottweiler/Weimaraner/Staffordshire Bull Terrier mix named Rufus aka Rufio and a 2 year old Husky/Australian Shepherd mix named Nea who was a stray I adopted last year from a friend and am continuously working with her on behavioral issues due to fear and lack of socialization. Between these animals and my boyfriend Ethan, I couldn’t ask for a better support system as I start a new chapter in my dog training career training with Noble Beast Dog Training.
