Who We Are

History :

Worked at the Peabody Shelter for animals in 2002 as a “Volunteer Coordinator” for about a year. I was soon voted to hold the title of “Vice President” of the board for about 6 months just before the shelter became Peabody Animal Life Savers (P.A.L.S.). During that time I started on my mission to become a Professionally trained and certified dog trainer. I soon made it my mission to help all dogs that need both basic manors and those that have some quirks.

I enjoy working on aggression issues and quirks that seem to have owners confused as to “Why does my dog do that?” I enjoy the challenge of it! I am not afraid to get bit and just thrive on helping dogs learn to “just be happy” upon teaching their owners to have the “Pack Leader” mentality. It makes us better people and better owners to our animals!
