I got my first Rottweiler in 1998 and from there the dog world was open to me. I started showing Rottweilers as a hobby and I fell in love with it. I started in the AKC and moved on to Seiger style events (German Standard) and competed in the IFR World Championships in Belgium and a dog I bred placed 5th.  I have trained all my dogs for Conformation, Schutzhund (tracking, obedience, and protection), therapy work, obedience, herding, and more. I showed professionally in Europe and the US. From there I began training other breeds professionally while living in Atlanta, GA.  After years of training dogs in Atlanta I moved to St. Simons Island, GA to open a dog training facility and dog daycare. It is now a full dog resort with dog grooming, dog training, daycare, boarding, and retail. In January 2018, Island Tailwaggers sold and I moved to Southern California. I am focusing only on dog training now, bridging the communication gap between dogs and their handlers. I am a Evaluator for the AKC Canine Good Citizen program. I am also a "Professional" member of the IACP. Now offering dog training in Newport Beach, dog training in Dana Point, dog training in Laguna Beach. dog training in San Clemente, dog training in Laguna Niguel, dog training in South Orange County.
