If you love your dog but not his behavior, I can help you change it. Well-behaved and trained dogs make better pets and become assets rather than liabilities. A trained dogs increases his safety and makes him welcome wherever he goes.

I offer a full class curriculum in obedience and agility at both pet and competition levels, puppy classes and mature dogs. I also offer brush-up classes.

I will train you to train your dog. You will learn skills that will benefit your dog's behavior throughout his lifetime. A small example of taught behaviors are: leash training, recall, stay, uninvited jumping and so much more. I will teach the fundamental skills needed for all learning and they will become second nature to both your and your pet. Your pet will "learn to learn", and as a result, you will both become more confident. I offer fair and consistent techniques which will provide you with a lifetime of communication and training skills.

All classes are limited allowing individual attention for each dog and handler. Emphasis is placed on skills that will be applicable in "the real world". I also train for specific needs.

I have bred Golden Retrievers for over 30 years, and have competed with them successfully in AKC events of conformation, agility and obedience. I have earned numerous AKC competition awards and AKC titles, and have personally handled my Golden Retrievers to their AKC championships and titles. In addition, I have won local and National breed club awards for my achievements. In my professional career, I have worked as a registered veterinarian technician, and retired as the Captain of Animal Control and Humane Cruelty Investigator after a decade of service. I started my professional dog training career working as a dog trainer for Sirius Puppy Training ( and went on to do private dog training in group and private environments. I am an AKC S.T.A.R. puppy, AKC Canine Good Citizen and AKC Community Evaluator. As the Adams County 4H Dog Leader I offer free showmanship and obedience classes to the kids in my community.
