Did you know dog training is an unregulated service industry? This means anyone, regardless of training, can call themselves a dog trainer and/ or a behaviorist. This is one of the reasons I have put in the work to be able to offer science based training in Sioux Falls. 

Education Matters

I am  a graduate of the esteemed Karen Pryor Dog Trainer Professional Program.  Through this program I was better able to understand the science of dog training, and how to help my clients achieve their goals. In addition, I complete continuing education credits each year, to stay on top of the latest research. Furthermore I have my bachelor’s degree in psychology where my passion for observing behavior and influencing it in a positive way was formed. My diverse background has enabled me to help my clients make dog training a part of their life style. 

Methods Matter

 My commitment to effective training and behavior consulting  is  shown through my membership  with the Pet Professionals Guild  as well  the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants Dog division.  Learn more about why methods matter here: Reward-Based Dog Training is Best

My mission is simple: To positively impact our client’s lives one dog at a time.
