I began working with dogs when I was 12 years old, and now being a bit older I am finally able to live my passion as a certified professional dog trainer. I have been an educator for 29 years in Champaign-Urbana and the Northwest Suburbs for the past 16 years. I have two dogs, Eli, a Maltese, and Cody, a Mi-Ki. Eli has achieved a lot in his 10 years. He has a MACH, he is a certified therapy dog, he has his Canine Good Citizen certification, he has an Expert Trick Dog Title and an AKC Trick Dog Performer Title, and a wonderful companion. Cody has his Canine Good Citizen certification, he did some nosework, and he is the best cuddler in the world. Eli and Cody bring so much joy to my life and I hope that I can help you experience the same joy. I hope to hear from you.
