I was born and raised in Colorado Springs, CO and I have worked with dogs all my life and I can honestly say I have loved every minute of it!
I have professionally trained dogs for over 22 years and I am committed to providing superior training and care for you and your dog. Working with you to find the most effective training options and solutions is my #1 priority and what I work for at every level at Under the Sun.
Dog training and care is my passion. I am constantly expanding my training education by learning and adapting my approach based on experience and the most up to date industry guidelines and literature in addition to attending and presenting at International training seminars.
When I am not training and working with my clients and their dogs, I am spending time with my family handling and competing at National levels with our dogs.
