I am a certified dog trainer and offer dog training and obedience classes in Lake County California. I have a bachelor's degree in Biology from California State University Northridge, where I studied animal behavior and genetics. It has been essential for me when training and working with dogs. I have taught dog obedience, showmanship and care to the 4-H members in Lake county on and off since 2000. I am a full member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers (APDT), whose goal is "building better trainers through education". I am a certified AKC, Canine Good Citizen Evaluator (CGC), an AKC, STAR Puppy tester and an evaluator for the Foundation of Service Dog Support, Inc. In January 2015, I became certified with the National Association of Dog Obedience Instructors, it was a rigorous application process and I am extremely proud to have been accepted. My NADOI number is 1108. You can check out their web site at nadoi.org.
Since 1994, I have been rescuing and rehabilitating unstable dogs. It is especially satisfying taking an emotionally damaged dog and retraining it. There is a tremendous feeling of accomplishment as I see that dog blossom into a balanced member of the pack. Then being able to place a well adjusted, trustworthy dog with a new family.
I look forward to hearing from you and helping you with your new dog or rehabilitating your current dog.
