I’m proud to hold an Honor’s Certificate in Training & Counseling from the world-renown SF/SPCA Academy for Dog Trainers (CTC 2001), and a post-Academy honors Certificate in Curriculum Development & Design. I’m a dedicated professional member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers and am Pet First Aid and CPR certified. I’m probably best known locally for co-founding San Francisco’s first puppy-only daycare and training center. An innovative program based on the preventative power of early socialization, SF Puppy Prep was one of the first of it’s kind anywhere. Prior to SFPP, I taught dog training classes at various locations, including the SF/SPCA, and also worked a stint in a pet hospital. Having worked before, during, and after Puppy Prep with hundreds of families and their dogs to prevent and resolve all manner of behavior issues, I now focus my attention on working with families to help two- and four-legged children grow up harmoniously together. I have provided a starting point for many people looking for a career working with animals. I'm an educator first and love to share my knowledge of dog behavior and pack dynamics with motivated and enthusiastic candidates. Are you looking for a career change that will provide you with daily outdoor exercise and emotional satisfaction? If you are, please contact me, I'd love to help get you started on your new career!
