As a professional dog trainer, I strive to bridge the communication gap between humans and canines. My passion is to teach people how to be effective trainers in their own right. I have been helping dogs since the age of 10, as my family and I spent much of our free time fostering puppies in our small apartment in the Bronx. In addition to dog training, I have developed a love for fish keeping and for the husbandry and care of a slew of other critters. For the last 7 years I've been in the dog training and animal care industry. While volunteering in shelters I was witness to some less than stellar conditions, which only strengthened my desire to find as many homes for as many pups as I could. Having worked in several retail pet stores as well as doggy daycares, I have experience with a multitude of breeds, ranging from Chihuahuas and Pomeranians to German Shepherds and Rottweilers. I've guided students from basic obedience to graduating from Canine Good Citizen courses. I am proud of those who moved on to become service dogs.
While my expertise lies in basic obedience and canine companionship, I'm someone who values education. Someday, I would love to explore the other multitudes of training techniques to better serve my community.
