Working with dogs and their humans throughout the years has been an absolute joy and a privilege and we are truly grateful to be able to expand and share our knowledge with more families! My story started over thirty years ago with the love of a family dog named Briquette "Brick" Charcoal. She was an all-black lab/pit bull mix who grew up with me, and she was the best friend I ever had. Learning dog behavior was easy with Brick. Being a very clever girl, she showed me how to motivate her in the correct way, and we formed a bond unlike any other.
Losing Brick was hard on the whole family, and it was made even harder when we had two new husky puppies who were very mischievous. I was able to use what I'd learned with Brick and had to research some new ways to motivate these two to shape them into amazing dogs. As I got older, I was able to expand my knowledge through working with the dogs of my friends and neighbors, and quickly after that I took classes to take a deeper dive into dog psychology.
Fast forward to today; my hunger for knowledge and drive to help more families is even stronger. What we know about animal behavior and psychology continues to grow. We continue to learn new ways to motivate and positively affect their lives. It is important to me that everyone has access to the right tools, and we continue to help as many dogs as possible. I will continue to learn, adapt, and grow, giving your dog the best chance at a healthy and happy life with you!
