Cold Noses Warm Hearts Dog Training's motto is “Teach me to be the dog you want”.  A strong, positive relationship between you and your dog is how to accomplish this.  A dog will work with you because they choose to be with you.  Science and behavior based positive reinforcement is our tool.  I am certified by  CPDT-KA (Certified Professional Dog Trainer - Knowledge Assessed} with Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers.
​I am currently enrolled in the K9 Nose Work™ instructors course, on my way to becoming a CNWI™ (Certified Nose Work Instructor) with NACSW™ (National Association of Canine Scent Work)

​​​I grew up with dogs and have always shared my life with at least one.  I am a cross-over trainer, having taught obedience classes in the 1990’s.  I have participated in multiple canine sports, and am currently involved with K9 Nosework and agility. 

I’ve been involved in Animal Assisted therapy/Intervention and Animal Assisted Crisis Response as certified canine/human team, evaluator, mentor and trainer since 2000.  I've been training dogs and helping others train dogs since 1995.
