About Me
Originally from the mountains of NY where I managed a no-kill shelter and later operated a dog rescue, I moved to North Carolina with my husband, daughter, and our four amazing dogs in 2012.

In North Carolina, I founded a volunteer foster/transport program as well as evaluated and trained the animals rescued from a local high-kill shelter. I went on to manage and run an animal boarding and doggie daycare facility. I established an obedience and dog behavior training classes at the facility and developed a comprehensive dog behavior evaluation system to best evaluate and integrate large groups of dogs appropriately.

A recent move has brought me to Central Texas and I am excited to now offer dog behavior consulting and training to this wonderful community. If you have a need or desire for you and your pet, I can make you successful.  I am here to help you and your dog achieve the relationship you want.
