Each family/dog situation is different. For that reason, I provide personalized instruction for puppies and adult dogs to reinforce the manners needed for living in your household and society. The majority of problems occur in the home, so by training there, we can address the issues immediately and focus on the behaviors that are most important to each family.

In 1983 I founded All About Dogs in northern California, becoming one of the first clicker trainers in the state. I’ve continued to offer private, in-home consulting and training for all breeds, sizes, ages and temperaments of dogs. My B.A. in Psycholgy and Masters in Education prepared me well for this type of training method. My advanced certification has provided me with the skills required to effectively and humanely train your dog, while enhancing the spark that makes your dog so special to you.
  • Certified twice as a Certified Pet Dog Trainer, assessed by the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers.
  • Earned my CAP (Competency Assessment Program for clicker trainers) Level 2 with distinction
  • My education continues by my participation in seminars, web courses and hands on workshops.
  • I interact on a daily basis with veterinarians, Certified Pet Behavior Counselors and other mammal, avian, zoo and canine professionals worldwide via the Internet to keep up with the latest trends.

You can relax knowing that your dog is in the experienced hands of a professional dog trainer!
