I have trained dogs professionally for most of my life. I believe the cornerstone of all dog training companion dog or assistance dog is the bond built between the handler and dog. I have been instrumental in starting Therapy Dog programs at the Methodist Hospital and City of Hope. Over the years I have titled my own dogs and assisted clients titling their dogs in AKC CGC, CGC Community, CGC Urban and Trick which helped me understand the mechanics of training, Public Access and the solutions needed to help both handler and dog. Trick became Task and I have followed that path.
I share my home with my Service Dog, Chase a Curly-Coated Retriever, a Dutch Shepherd, Lykos, a Labrador Retriver, Bodie and a Golden Retriever, Sierra along with my beautiful partner, Terri.
