Cathy’s Path to Dog and Puppy Training
Thank you for visiting my site! I’m glad you’re here, and I’m excited to help you with all your dog obedience needs. Let me tell you a little more about myself.
Animals have always held a very special place in my heart – starting at age nine, when I “adopted” one of my neighbor’s puppies. I’ve been a proud Pet Parent ever since, but it wasn’t until 2007 that I decided to actually devote my career to dog and puppy training.
An unexpected job layoff had allowed me the time to adopt and spend time with a new puppy, as well as start my own pet sitting business. My excitement with my little bundle of fur turned to frustration after several months of dealing – unsuccessfully – with housebreaking, jumping, chewing, and many other obedience issues. I noticed that I wasn’t alone when it came to bad dog behavior. Many of my pet sitting clients were also struggling. I was determined to find a solution, so I got in touch with a Certified Professional Trainer and went on a tour of his training facility. The tour opened my eyes to a completely new world, and I realized then and there that I wanted to do more than just learn how to change my own dog’s behavior. I wanted to become a Professional Dog Trainer so I could help other Pet Parents, too.
I’ve spent the last decade dedicating myself to learning as much as I can about dogs, so that I can pass that knowledge on to my clients and their dogs – helping them to communicate better and develop a deeper bond. I am certified and endorsed in the use of a variety of dog training tools by two internationally recognized hands-on dog trainer schools, and I am constantly learning new techniques through various workshops and seminars taught by the best trainers in the country.
