Work Experience

Professional Information

I’ve worked in the pet industry for twelve years. I became a Dog Trainer through an in-work program.

After this experience I knew exactly what I am here for and it is to spend my day surrounded by dogs and various animals.C

Currently I offer group pack walks and hikes. I want to be able to offer a variety of fun activities people can do with their dogs and both of you have fun. I am working to be able to open a 10 acre facility that allows just that! I would love to be able to offer Doggy Daycare, Training of different options, Grooming, Vet Care, and a Pet Hotel for all species, plus lots more!

Help me make my dream come true!

Dog Training Instructor Program

(August 2008 – December 2008)

This was a 12 week program held by PETCO, trained by a highly experienced Dog Trainer. I worked with her for a few weeks and had a book I had to study and then take a test on the material. Once I passed the test we started our Dog Training. I co-trained with her to get a feel for it for the first few weeks, as the weeks progressed I started training more behaviors. Half way through training with her we started training at my store. When at my store I did all the training, my Mentor watched and graded my progress. By the end of the 12 weeks I was a confident Trainer and ready to share my knowledge with others.
