Certified Dog Trainer and Behavior Counselor

My passion is strengthening relationships between people and their dogs. Helping people deepen their understanding of their own dog is so powerful and rewarding . Dogs want to be understood and we want to understand our dogs. I can help your with that.

I am an experienced dog owner and trainer having owned Siberian Huskies for 15 years before starting Willow Glen Paws. I also grew up with multiple mutts as well as many other animals. After moving to Willow Glen I started pet sitting in other people’s homes, dog walking, offering day care and eventually boarding in my home. Handling all sorts of dogs, I would like to help you if you are experiencing frustration with your canine friend.

I look forward to providing excellent customer service.

I  inspire my students to train their dogs in a humane manner that makes them  proud to take their dog out and about.  I want your dog to be an awesome family member.   Calm, cool and collected no mater what new people, dogs, life experiences come their way.
