Notes From the Trainer
My passion as a dog trainer is teaching people to properly train their dogs to be a welcomed part of the family. Behavioral problems are one of the main reasons dogs are surrendered to shelters. Proper training can save these types of dogs. Everyone likes a well trained dog, it’s the only way to have a dog and truly enjoy them.
I became a dog enthusiast because I was given an adult dog that had many behavioral problems. I worked with several trainers to make her a wonderful companion that I could truly enjoy.
My show experience includes obedience and agility. My golden retriever “Kula” has earned the following titles from AKC and United Kennel Club (UKC): Master Agility Excellent (MX) Agility Excellent (AX) Excellent jumpers (AXJ) Companion Dog Excellent (CDX), Rally Excellent (RE), Novice Fast (NF) Canine Good Citizen (CGC). United Companion Dog(UCD), Agility 2 (AG2) Rally 1 (RO1). My French Bulldog “Soleil” has the following titles from AKC and United Kennel Club (UKC): Novice Agility (NA), Novice Agility Jumpers (NAJ), Canine Good Citizen (CGC), Rally 1 (RO1)
