Owner and Pack Leader

Besides being a dog lover, I am mother, musician, seamstress, friend, partner, daughter, sister.  I was in the music business for 15 years as a performer, teacher, producer, and studio vocalist.  I have 20 years of experience with dogs. I am a graduate of Bel-Rae Veterinary Institute and have worked as a Certified Veterinary Technician and Doggie Daycare manager.  In the Spring of 2019, I graduated from Dog-Biz University where I became well versed in understanding pack behavior, reading dog language, and using positive training methods.  I operate under Dog-Biz Ethical Business Practices.

I am originally from Minneapolis, Minnesota.  In 1997, I packed up my Honda and drove west with my German Shephard, "Sam" and guitar, "Pheobe". I've since used my love of music and dogs to work and run businesses in each field.
