I have been a friend of all animals my entire life and a humble and devoted student of dogs for the last 19 years. My affiliation with one of New York City's top rescue groups, A Cause for Paws (www.acauseforpaws.com) initiated my dedicated journey of learning the language of dogs-- what they think, what they need, what they tell us and how they view the world. 

 Working with a rescue group afforded me the experience of learning with a vast variety of different dogs of breeds, ages, histories, and personalities. Many of these rescues required rehabilitation, which is complicated and different from teaching them Basic Obedience skills. But these dogs inspired me to go further, deepen my own knowledge, and learn how to effectively help them make these transitions. They taught me a profound lesson: that if you harness your passion, apply dedicated focus and energy, then you can teach an old human new tricks. 

I was extremely fortunate to have found, during these years, my own trainer: Lydia DesRoche (www.sitstaydogtraining.com), whose dedication, high standards, and demand of excellence helped me create a firm foundation in which I could continue to build on with confidence. Every dog that has come into my world has taught me something new as each presents a fresh challenge that continues to deepen my insight and wisdom. I am most grateful to each and every one and particularly for their most forgiving nature. 

I currently reside in Saratoga Springs, NY, where I offer Private Consultations, Basic Training, Relationship based Agility, Puppy Playgroups & Behavioral Sessions as well as boarding for a small group of private clients and existing clients.
