Hello and thank you for visiting my website! Here is a quick background about myself and my program. I grew up on a ranch in a small town called Austin, NV. There, I learned the value of hard work and a love for animals, and more specifically my working dogs. Our border collies and australian shepherds played an important role in raising and protecting cattle. In addition to our herding dogs, we had our family dog Samson; the world’s greatest golden retriever! I’ve loved dogs ever since!
In 2012, Mike and I were married and soon after we moved to Logan, UT where we started a dog walking business, which later transitioned into a training business. To expand my knowledge and training abilities, I started my first dog training certification through Catch Canine Trainer’s Academy where I completed their Basic and Master programs. To complete my required hours I got hired on as a trainer for Puppy Steps Training where I worked for 3 years and eventually became their head trainer.
My husband is an avid waterfowl and upland hunter which led to our first field bred Labrador Retriever named Odie. Since then, we’ve been hooked and have trained and competed in hunt tests and field trials for both retriever and pointing breeds. We continue to train and compete with personal and clients’ dogs.
This past year I had the wonderful opportunity to attend one of the best dog training schools in the country; The Michael Ellis School for Dog Trainers. There, I was part of the four month long Immersion program where I completed 12 different certifications.
