I have worked in veterinary clinics since 1999. My jobs have included everything from Kennel work, to Veterinary Assistant, Surgery Technician, Weight Loss Coordinator, Office Assistant, Technician Manager, Training and Behavior Consultant, and Groomer. I received my certificate for Pet Dog Training from the Animal Behavioral College in 2003 and take every chance I get to further my knowledge and understanding of dogs and dog language. I was also an advisor for a few years at my local 4-H dog group. I enjoy training dogs in the sport of Schutzhund, Search and Rescue, Personal Protection, Agility, Herding, Obedience, and Behavior Modification. Not only do I enjoy dog training and dogs in general, I truly feel that the key to many of our pet problems is education. I want to educate people about dog communication, training, and general care to prevent more dogs from ending up in shelters.
I also enjoy other rescue work. My belief is that animals don't ask for the situations they are put in. I rehab wildlife and abandoned domestic animals. I help rehome needy dogs, volunteer at non-profit organizations whenever possible and try to educate people on a daily basis on the importance of responsible pet ownership.
In late 2019 I fulfilled a long time dream. The launch of WeightLossForPets.com will help owners create a better life for their pets.
