"I have always loved dogs. It seems something I was born to do…to feel.  As the years marched by, I became keenly aware that love is merely a start…it's not the only necessary ingredient when dealing with dogs. Education, structure, guidance, leadership and task oriented training are key components which need to be present, ALONG with love, in order to assist a dog in reaching their maximum potential. I have enjoyed teaching, on a professional level since 1996. My certification through the National Association of Obedience Instructors was earned in 2001. I've been teaching group and private lessons at various locations within WNY since 1996. I held Board positions at Southtown's Dog Training Club for over 12 years, including Presidency. APBT rescue was a long served dedication of mine. I am an advocate for the education, reality, and responsible ownership of the American Pit Bull Terrier.  I'm particularly proud of the participation I've had in a variety of Competitive Dog Sports, AKC and UKC Obedience, Agility, Rally-O,  Schutzhund, French Ring and Mondio Ring. I have taken multiple dogs of varying breeds to various levels of titling in a multitude of sports. I have earned over a dozen High In Trials and my dogs have occupied National Rankings. The experiences, training in multiple disciplines have afforded me an opportunity to acquire knowledge from many sources. I am blessed and thankful for these opportunities!  It will be my absolute pleasure to assist you with your canine's needs."
