I have been a certified dog trainer since Dec. 2004. I have done private (individual) training, group training, and in-kennel training. From April 2005 to July 2006, I worked as the Head Pet Trainer at PetSmart in Weatherford, TX. I am currently a Mentor Trainer for ABC, where I work with ABC students to help them become Certified Dog Trainers.
In addition to teaching new dog trainers and training dogs part-time, I also work as an Elementary School Counselor, a Licensed Professional Counselor, and a Registered Play Therapist. I hope to use my knowledge of dog training to train my future dog to use in Animal Assisted Therapy. I also hope to help other human/animal teams become certified to participate Animal Assisted Therapy.
When I am not counseling or training, I enjoy volunteering at my local animal shelter to help the shelter pets become more adoptable. If you are interested in training your pet, please don't hesitate to contact me. Interacting with animals is one of my greatest passions, and I am so thankful for the opportunity to work with animals and the wonderful education I received at ABC!
