Dogs have always been a part of my life, 25 years ago I decided to make them my entire life and passion.
I enjoy competing and have earned many titles with my dog’s in Obedience, Rally and the breed ring both in Canada and the United States.
I absolutely love every minute of raising puppies and know the value that an early introduction to positive training has for the entire life of the dog.
My bred by American Staffordshire Terriers have been recognized as Canada’s best on multiple occasions for both performance events and confirmation.I also have Belgian Malinois and I’m currently training my male Renzo that I imported from the Netherlands for the obedience and rally rings.
I have worked part time in the film industry as a trainer for a number of years. Working with both my own dogs and client dogs. I have been an instructor at TNT for the past seven years. I help my students reach their goals and beyond with their new puppies or current adult dog.
When the Canadian Kennel Club Trick Dog Title program became available I was very excited as I love teaching tricks! My dog’s have earned multiple trick dog titles from the American Kennel Club.
My Am Staff, Rush was gifted his Elite Performers Title from AKC in honor of all his work in television and film. He has also received the Trick Dog Trophy multiple times from the Venture Dog Fanciers Of California. I am a certified trick dog instructor and evaluator.
I am also pleased to be on the CKC’s Canine Good Neighbour List of Evaluators.
I have had the privilege of working with some of the best dog trainers throughout the years and I am honored to be mentored by and train with the amazing Janice Gunn.
As an instructor I look to make training positive and enjoyable for those at both ends of the leash.
I am a member of:
