About Me

I am a certified professional dog trainer, certified canine behavior consultant, and family dog mediator. I strive to help people and their dogs build a strong relationships based on trust and clear communication through force-free dog training methods. My specialties include dog aggression, resource guarding, canine separation anxiety, and leash reactivity.


With over a decade of experience, I have had the opportunity to work with hundreds of dogs on a wide variety of behavioral challenges. I believe that preventive and proactive training is key to helping dogs live a happy, well-adjusted life with their family.

I currently work as a dog behavior and training expert for Preventive Vet, a website dedicated to providing free education on pet health, safety, and training. I'm also the lead consultant for Pupstanding Academy and teach group classes at Seattle Humane in Bellevue, Wa.
