Method: Mentored by Allison Henry, balanced training with a lot of positive reinforcement is also my basis for training. Each dog learns differently and I recognize and appreciate the need of a variety of different tactics and forms of encouragement.
Tag line: Routine with consistency makes a happy dog!

Education: Conifer High School Graduate
Work Experience: I was a Dog Groomer for 18 years, with a shop of my own for 10 years, specializing in aggressive dogs and those that had previous negative experiences. My training experience started when I was 16 with service dogs for paraplegics and I am the first person to graduate from Conifer High School with a service dog in training! I have worked for private companies as well as kennels and other dog trainers. Allison (well known & long term dog trainer at Busters and throughout the state) has been my mentor getting back into training in Conifer. I have bred, trained and placed many dogs for service work and I especially love training dogs for special tasks such as opening doors, picking up dropped objects, balance training for unsteady people and pressure therapy. I have been breeding for 8 years. I look to breed the best of the breeds temperament and I take the time in properly preparing my puppies for their forever homes. I am so happy and proud of my continued passion for animals and the consistency, love and respect I will always put into them as I continue my career in the animal loving community!
