About Our Trainer

I am a twice-certified dog trainer and honors graduate of the San Francisco SPCA Academy for Dog Trainers, considered to be the “Harvard” for dog trainers and behavior counselors, where I earned my Certification in Training & Counseling. The Academy was led by Jean Donaldson, renowned author, teacher and trainer.

In addition, I am a Certified Professional Dog Trainer, Knowledge Assessed by the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT), the professional organization where members pass a rigorous exam and pursue continuing education, and an AKC® Canine Good Citizen Evaluator®.

I participated in Purdue University School of Veterinary Medicine’s Principles & Techniques of Behavior Modification Course. I earned my masters degree in education at Georgia State University.
