Training the Family Dog was established in 2014. It was created to support families and their pet dogs with modern, effective and ethical, training solutions.
I am a mother of two beautiful children, a wife and a businesswoman. Samantha, my eldest child lives with special needs. Our household is blessed to have a Labrador named Eric, an assistance dog that supports Samantha and is her very best friend.
My younger years were focused on horses with a trusty dog by my side. In 2009, I began working professionally with dogs. I studied and achieved my certificate lll in Dog Behaviour and Training in 2012. To this day, I am actively engaging in conferences and events for ongoing support and up to date knowledge.
As a pet dog trainer, I see many families who don’t foresee the challenges of adding a puppy to their home. Families adjust better when they know how to manage their puppies and appropriately involve the household in Training the Family Dog. The bond between the family and the dog can suffer if unsuitable methods are used. I believe I provide a realistic way for busy families to include and train their dog(s). Teaching families how to communicate effectively and ethically with their dog will establish a happy environment for all.
