About Me

Ive always had a strong connection with animals and a natural knack for bonding with them.
I started focusing on Canine Behavior Rehabilitation after years of searching information about various schools, trainers, teachers, and methods out there to help people with problem pets because I was tired of hearing how you had to use painful tools, how you had to be rough with your dog.  Seeing animals that needed help and not getting the help they deserved broke my heart.  I heard over and over that people were giving their pets away or even surrendering a beloved pet to a shelter for behavior issues that they were told could not be fixed.  Heard stories of pet owners being kicked out of puppy classes and obedience schools because they had a "bad" dog and of others spending hundreds on classes over a few week period for their dog to only obey the command in the class. I knew there had to be an answer other than for an owner to give up  their pets or live with the behavior issues. 

Why "Wholistic" Canine Coach?

 

Great question. Because having the dog of your dreams takes understanding the “WHOLE” dog.  A holistic approach to working with your dog allows us to understand how everything can affect our dog.  From proper nutrition, the way we feed, socialization, how stress in the home, physical issues, breeding, genetics  and so much more can have an affect on our dog’s behaviors.

Being a wholistic canine coach is all about connecting, understanding and bonding. Behaviors don't just happen. They are learned. How we interact, how we react,  what we feed, environment and chemicals around us can affect your dog's behavior.

 I’ve been helping both pets and their owners understand each other better and live together in  harmony.  Wholistic canine coach is a great option for setting your new puppy up for success in and out of your home as well as retraining and correcting problems that are causing you, or your current animal, trouble. From the basics to issues such as anxiety, fear and aggression issues contact me for peace of mind for you and your animals.

Sharing your home with an animal can be a dream or a nightmare.

I became a canine coach after years of searching information about various schools, trainers, teachers, and methods out there to help people with problem pets because I was tired of hearing and seeing animals that needed help and not getting the help they deserved. I heard over and over that people were giving their pets away or  surrendering a beloved pet to a shelter for behavior issues that they were told could not be fixed.

 

I still hear stories of pet owners being kicked out of puppy classes and obedience schools because they had a “bad” dog and of others spending hundreds on classes over a few week period for their dog to only obey the command in the class.  I knew there had to be an answer other than for an owner to give up their pets or live with the behavior issues. I finally found  my place by listening to the silence.  I stopped listening to people that I knew were not creating trust and bonds with pets, that said force was the only way, that there was only one way.  I spent all of the time and did all the work for you and want to share this knowledge with you to help improve the quality of life with your pet. Now, are you ready to get back the life you envisioned when you got your pet?

I have been an animal lover my entire life. I truly believe that we have been fed so much misinformation on how to “work” with dogs that we cause more damage than good.  Dogs deserve better and if we would just learn from them we can see how easy it is to work with them and not against them.

Our pets deserve to be healthy both physically and mentally and when we take them into our homes it is our responsibility to do what is best. There is absolutely no shame in asking for help with your pets.

Our pets deserve to have someone try to understand them, someone that understands they aren’t just “bad dogs".

 

 


.

Passionate. Patient. Persistent. Pet-lover. These are just a few of the characteristics that describe me.  I know each animal is different and i appreciate each animals differences. They all teach me something new every day.  I know that there is often a communication gap and they need someone to be their "human" voice so I’ll work with your family and pet to give you the specific guidance you need. Whether you’re thinking about getting an animal, have a new pet, or already own a pet with behavioral problems, I am here to help.

What they need
Communication

Understanding

Trust

With these things all in place...you can C.U.T out all the noise that sets most dogs up to fail

Stop watching your dog. Take time to enjoy the scenery, smell the flowers, bond with your dog.

E ver wonder where you would end up if you took your dog for a walk and never once pulled back on the leash?

The main thing that drives me is to help people understand their dog. How their dog communicates, learns and what will make their dog thrive.
