After graduating college, I was a zookeeper at the Kansas City Zoo. After many years of gaining experience and mastering my training skills with exotic animals like elephants and sea lions, I decided to start a dog training business. It has been my pleasure to help my clients build fulfilling and lasting relationships with their dogs all through positive reinforcement training methods. We have a chocolate Labrador named Barry who we take everywhere in our Vandoit camper van. We have traveled from Maine to the bottom of the Baja Peninsula putting over 40,000 miles on our van and counting. This has given us the freedom to pursue our hobbies that include mtn biking, hiking, snorkeling, kayaking and camping. I truly believe the most important part about life is to pursue your dreams and go outside and play!
