About the Owner

I am a graduate of the internationally acclaimed Tom Rose School for Professional Dog Trainers in High Ridge, Missouri. During my time at the Tom Rose School, I was exposed to a variety of training techniques and hands-on experience working with a large assortment of dogs, dealing with various behavior and training issues. After I graduated, I continued to work for the school for another year until I decided to move home to be with family in Maryland, where I opened my own dog training business.

I was born in Maryland and couldn’t think of another place where I would rather start my business. I grew up always having dogs in the home, and from there my love of dogs began. I worked at dog kennels and grooming facilities to be more involved in the community and was always endeavoring to expand my knowledge on animal care and training. I am currently partnered with the non-profit Scallywags Animal rescue based out of Kirkwood, Pennsylvania where I evaluate, train and help place dogs in their forever home. When I'm not working, you can find me with my two German Shepherds, Ranger and Jorah and my Shitzu, Milton.
