As a kid I always loved all the critters, especially dogs. You’d often find me outside training our farm dogs to do tricks or out hiking the creek bed with them on our acreage.
After high school I went the traditional route and I attended the veterinary technician program at DMACC. After graduation I worked nearly 15 years in numerous veterinary hospitals and settings learning animal behavior and handling skills. I also attended the animal ecology program at Iowa State University for 2 years, further expanding my knowledge in animal behavior and communication. Although I loved veterinary medicine and caring for the animals, I knew I needed to do more. I saw so many dogs who were scared, anxious, fearful, aggressive and insecure. I knew these dogs and their humans needed more. I knew that they were so insecure and lacked confidence in their owners.
In 2016 I started my dog training business. I first focused on working with dogs solely in my home but quickly realized the need to work these dogs in the real world. They needed to experience all that life could throw at them but have an amazing time during the process.
My goal has always been to help out dogs and their owners in a way that is effective for everyone involved. I realize that we all have busy schedules and need to utilize our time effectively. Which is why I’ve designed fusion programs for our clients. Our fusion training programs are not your standard group class or one time private dog training session. We combine a variety of learning components through the most advanced educational styles that are geared not only toward your dog, but toward YOU, the human, and your busy lifestyle.
