About the Trainer
After moving to Texas from Chicago in 2012, little did I know that a whole new career path would open up for me. I have always loved animals (especially dogs!) although I was unsure as to how to pursue a career that incorporated that passion. I started volunteering with the Humane Society in Dallas, and later started fostering dogs and working with a local rescue. After seeing countless dogs being abandoned, dumped, and returned due to behavior problems that could be easily fixed I knew I had to do something more to help! Starting with the fosters I had and my own pack of dogs (who were a bunch of hoodlums themselves), I began training and working with them regularly. I really enjoyed bonding with them on a new level, and knew I had found a way to turn my passion into a career. As a trainer I am always striving to learn new and different techniques from dog trainers all over the world. I continue to broaden my knowledge so I can help dogs (and their owners) live happy, obedient lives and turn those Hoodlum Hounds into Happy Hounds!
