Growing up on a ranch in rural northern California I developed a love for animals. My love for dogs and a desire to help others prompted me to become a puppy raiser for Guide Dogs for the Blind after college. After raising three puppies, I decided to pursue a career as a dog trainer and attended Triple Crown Academy for Professional Dog Trainers in 2003. Since then I have worked for dog daycare and kennel facilities, and I have worked with various rescue organizations. I have experience working with breeds of all sizes and temperaments. I have personally trained my own dogs in basic obedience and agility, and I am currently raising another guide dog puppy.
I became an avid runner a couple years ago, and one or more of my dogs will frequently join me on my shorter runs. I've experienced firsthand the calming effect these runs have on my dogs. I created The Jogging Dog to help busy dog owners in the Sacramento, Folsom and El Dorado Hills area experience this as well.
