Trainer Profile
APDT Member Since 2017

All Creatures Matter, LLC

I've worked with many shelter animals across the country for over 15 years before settling into the San Jose' area and I've found that the main reason for surrendering of these beloved pets is because of behavior! I knew there was a glitch in helping to keep these animals in their forever homes and they just need a little extra TLC. I decided to make it my purpose, and opened my own business so I could help curve the needless surrender of family members. I've fostered, trained and worked with all ages, breeds, temperaments and types of animals. Much of the work I've done has been helping the shy/stressed animals in the shelter environment and those who rescue and adopt them.

I am a certified Professional Dog Trainer (CPDT) and am a member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers, Humane Society Silicon Valley (HSSV), Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, and Humane Society United States, (HSUS) Pets for life and Prevent Cruelty, CA. My personal interest in dog training started as a child when my father opened the door of his police car and a beautiful (but very thin) German Shepherd dog jumped out! This dog was kept in the basement of someone's home and he rescued it - we named her Sheba, and she started my love, compassion, and quest to help all animals with their individual journey! I knew on that day when this shy dog came into our home - we connected! - it was more than just giving her a home but about gaining her trust, rebuilding her confidence, and re-igniting her soul!
