About me

Location New Hyde Park, NY, United States
Introduction I am a dog lover & dog-parent 1st, and a dog trainer 2nd. I am an ABCDT & a CPDT-KA. Since the early 90's, my training method has always been about positive reinforcement with clicker training as my specialty. I live in NY with my husband & three dogs (Pebbles, Bam Bam & Shmoopy), collectively & affectionately known as my "monsters." Bam Bam came to me with some aggression issues but he is now a calm, non-reactive dog. Because he is so calm, he often helps me with dog-reactive clients, playing the role of “neutral dog”. Shmoopy is the youngest member of the family & often serves as a demo-dog in group classes. Bam Bam is a registered Therapy Dog with TDI & both Bam Bam & Shmoopy are proud to be CGC Dogs. Pebbles is the mother-hen & mostly just looks pretty :) I am a proud member of APDT, PPG & a CGC Evaluator. I offer private, in-home training lessons & group training classes. I have been working with dogs & their guardians for many years & there is nothing that satisfies me more than to see a happy dog in a happy home! My mission is to help humans and their dogs enjoy many happy years together. Happy Tails!
Interests dogs, Dogs, DOGS!!!
