I have spent my life around dogs. Some of my first memories are of the times I spent with our Great Dane, Benjamin.
We had a procession of animals go through our home as I grew up, many because of my willingness to take in every stray pooch that passed by. I also began learning about training and working with dogs from our little Spitz-mix, Bosco.
I studied at Ball State University where I majored in Telecommunications and Media. During the years of my professional career, I not only had my own wonderful dog, Dharma, from whom I learned a lifetime of lessons, but I also volunteered with several animal shelters and rescues.
After Dharma’s passing, I decided I wanted to help others build the kind of relationship I had with her, so I began studying canine behavior and training and pursuing the field full time.
