Inspawration Dogs

 
I am addicted to dogs. They just light me up. I am also addicted to learning about dogs and what makes them tick! I have shared my entire life and my heart with some incredible dogs, most of them GSDs. For years I looked for the missing piece in the dog training puzzle. Then I found the joy of CHOICE. The joy in training thru play, getting real life results while having fun. Puppies are my passion, nothing please me more than helping a pup develop that unbreakable relationship with their human. I also enjoy repairing those already broken relationships of dogs that struggle with people and other dogs.

I am a concept trainer certified with Absolute Dogs, LTD. I have also passed their Geek program led by vet behaviorist, Tom Mitchell (focus on behavior struggles like resource guarding separation anxiety, chase,...). I study aggression (have attended Aggression in Dogs Conference 2020 & studied Leslie McDevitt's Control Unleashed, attended Cognitive Behavior Modification with Laura Donaldson, PhD, & many more). I have also taken the School of Canine Science Puppy Development program. I am always learning the latest and best methods of training & keen on understanding the "why" of the behavior. I am also a member of the Shock Free Coalition for Dogs. I plan to complete School of Canine Science Scent program to be able to run scent workshops, which are great for reactive dogs! I am also enrolled in the School of Canine Science THREE year behavioral program where I will come out as a certified Canine Science Behaviorist. I am an Accredited Dog Trainer with the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants. I currently live in Clarksville, TN with my Siberian Husky pup, Ana & my GSD, Eros.
