I am the owner of Bloomfield Dog Training in West Bloomfield, Michigan. I began my professional dog training career in 2003. Prior to that, I enjoyed a fulfilling career managing corporate training and development for a large, privately held, international company where I learned a great deal about how people learn and are motivated.
To improve the quality of my training services, I have participated in many dog-training classes and seminars. In 2018, I completed the Karen Pryor Academy Dog Trainer Professional program and became a KPA Certified Training Partner (CTP). With my new understanding of positive reinforcement and least intrusive minimally aversive (LIMA) training, both students and owners benefit from science-based techniques that produce fun and effective results!
I am an American Kennel Club Canine Good Citizen evaluator and am PetTech-certified in Pet First Aid and CPR. I am also a member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers. I have earned many AKC Obedience and Rally Titles and am an active Therapy Dog Volunteer. I served on the City of El Paso, Texas, Animal Welfare Advisory Committee and volunteer my services at the Michigan Animal Rescue League, helping their amazing staff find dogs forever homes.
