I became a dog trainer because of my crazy, wonderful yellow Lab, Milo.  When Milo came in to my life I realized that even though I had dogs all my life, I never trained one.  I decided to enroll us in a six week basic training course.  I soon realized that this training was just scratching the surface.

The training center was looking for interns and I applied and was blessed to be accepted.  After interning for a few years, I knew I loved dog training and became a certified professional trainer through the Karen Pryor Academy.

Ten years ago I took in a stray dog (Milo) and wanted to give her the best possible life.  However, it has been Milo that has completely changed my life and all for the better.
