About Me

Voted #1 Dog Trainer in Milwaukee Journal Top Choice Awards. Located in Waukesha, WI and serve clients in the Waukesha country greater Milwaukee area.

I live what I teach. Having worked at a shelter for almost a decade and have fostered/rehabilitated 100's of challenging dogs to prepare them for adoption.

I have worked with various non-profit animal rescue organizations, fostering, consulting and training for over 2 decades.

I have always exclusively chosen to share my home with shelter or rescue dogs. Two of my dogs, one of which was rescued from a puppymill auction, were so scared of life they were deemed unadoptable. After building up their confidence, both are demo dogs in my classes as well as therapy dogs.

Large and Small, I've worked with them all

Dogs who resource guard, have dog/dog issues, or are leash reactive.

China 2 legged rescue - AFTER

Shy, skittish, and puppymill rescues who have trouble adjusting to living in a home.

Adolescent, boisterous dogs who need manners and impulse control.

Through many years of working with animal rescue organizations, shelters and clients, I have extensive experience with all dog behavioral issues. I don't just study the methods, I share my home with dogs who had no other options and almost always have a foster in need of special training help and behavior modification.
