About Me

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

 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.
