OWNER/TRAINER I grew up in south Texas where dogs ran free and didn’t need to be on a leash. My dogs followed me to school and walked themselves home. Dogs were friendly, fun and furry. Those were the good ol’ days. Today, I live in a more populated city where it is important for dogs to have good manners and be good citizens too. I have seen too many people/dog relationships suffer from lack of knowledge. My goal is to help people communicate with their dogs in a positive way. In 2008, I started my own dog walking, pet sitting, and dog training business. After a couple of years under my belt, I wanted to learn more about training dogs and helping owners communicate more effectively. In early 2010, I attended Triple Crown Dog Training Academy where I graduated as a Certified Dog Trainer. Triple Crown (Starmark Academy) gave me the opportunity to study and train dog behaviors and learn different types of training methods. I continued into the Graduate Program at Triple Crown where we studied and trained with the Search and Rescue Team, Scent Detection Dogs, and Service Dogs. In late 2010, I began working at a large training facility where I taught a variety of classes such as Puppy Kindergarten, AKC Star Puppy, CGC, Manners, Advanced Manners, Scent Detection, Tricks, Agility Foundation, Treibball and others. Along with teaching classes I enjoyed helping owners with behavior issues and basic manners at their home. In 2011, I became certified as an AKC Canine Good Citizen Evaluator and a Certified ATA Level II Treibball instructor. In March 2013, I opened “Lucky Dog Training”. My first year was a lot of hard and a lot of learning. My client base has continued to grow over the last 5 years (thanks to client referrals). In April, 2017, I moved “Lucky Dog Training” to a new location and a larger building. It is now called “Lucky Dog Training Center”. My passion for training dogs and helpings owners communicate will be an on-going education course in my life! And I am forever grateful to each and every client! I hope to meet you and your dog soon! Please contact me if you are interested in growing with us.
