Head Trainer : Located at the Lauderdale Pet Lodge
Growing up on a farm in North Carolina, I have always involved myself with animals. Combining my love for critters of all shapes and sizes, and the joy I get from being a helping hand, I came to Florida to coach others on the key communication skills necessary in handling their canine companions, in and out of the home. Whatever your lifestyle, I can help you and your family build a stronger bond with your pet. Passionate. Patient. Persistent. Pet-lover. These are just a few of the characteristics that describe me. Every animal is an individual with their own quirks, talents, personalities, and experiences. I am committed to working with yours to give them the specific guidance they need. It’s never too late to teach an old dog new tricks, and I believe it’s never too late to train any pet. My services are designed with you and your family in mind, and I believe in working as much with you as with your animal. 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.
I am born and raised in South Florida. I have a diverse background with multiple jobs in media relations, athletics and sales, but needed a change and wanted to follow more of a passion that got me excited waking up every day, so I started working with animals. I joined the Pet Lodge team 3 years ago and haven’t looked back. Having worked my way from cleaning staff to daycare supervisor, I am excited to announce that I am one of the new certified dog trainers on property. I will specialize in basic puppy obedience training and social tutoring. I will also host puppy group classes weekly. I understand each dog has their own personality and lifestyle, so I am very flexible with different ways of training to get the results you desire. Training is a great tool to make dog ownership more pleasurable and can be greatly beneficial to strengthening the bond with your dog. Whether you are a first-time dog owner with a new pup, or an owner that just needs some assistance, I am eager to help with any of your challenges. I can’t wait to start this new journey together!
