Logo: Description:
As a KPA-CTP and CPDT-KA certified trainer, I provide private in-home pet training with specializations in behavior modification, adopted dogs, and family-friendly services. As a Certified Humane Education Specialist with fifteen years of teaching experience, I use the arts to teach children of all ages about important topics like responsible pet ownership, dog bite prevention, and companion animal welfare. My two rescue dogs, Marmalade and Butterscotch, visit a variety of community locations as the official Plucky Paws Therapy Dogs. Marmalade holds Canine Good Citizen and Community Canine titles with the AKC, and Butterscotch surpassed the odds to earn his CGC title as a blind-deaf senior dog. I'm a trainer with the Puppy Jake Foundation, providing socialization and behavior modification for service pups in training. I am passionate about companion animal welfare, and I volunteer with adoptable dogs at the Animal Rescue League of Iowa and the PAWS program at the Iowa Correctional Institution for Women. I have previously volunteered with the ARL's humane education department and TheraPets program. I'm a member of several prominent professional organizations, am involved in ongoing education, and am currently completing two certifications in canine behavior. I offer Behavior Solutions and Foundation Skills packages in coaching and day training formats. I also offer my Plucky Parents training package for expecting and new parents, and my Family Training package for households with older children who can participate in the training process. I provide customized in-home humane education for kids of all ages, including Pet Loss Support consultation and Fear of Dogs consultation, as well as therapy dog Birthday Pawty entertainment.
