Bio

I have been teaching individuals to train their own dogs for over 12 years. I taught my own service dog and was taught about teaching others in the same school. This work is my heart. And I am grateful to be able to do it.

About All is Pawsible Service Dog School

This is a two year program that teaches the individual to train their own service dog. We train for mobility, medical and hearing alert. During the two years the student learns not only basic obedience, but advanced service skills. They are taught about dog health and welfare in a positive reinforcement environment.

Our goal is for the individual to understand the training process so well, that as their needs change they are able to train their dog to meet those needs.
Thank you!

Question and answer

Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.

A. Service dog training for individuals with disabilities. Train for medical alert, hearing alert and mobility assistance.

Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?

A. When searching for a service dog trainer. Speak to the trainer before you purchase your potential dog. If they do not already pre-train dogs, they will need to find the best dog to meet your needs and the stresses of being a servicer dog.

Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?

A. You should check on the experience of your trainer. I recommend getting referrals and recommendations from the community. Make sure they are able to perform beyond obedience skills, but also able to teach service skills, such as retrievals and balancing.

Q. What do you like most about your job?

A. Helping those with disabilities gain confidence to participate in their community. With a two year school, the students not only gain the benefit of a service dog, but have the background to continue the training for new needs. Also, the satisfaction of having trained the dog themselves.

Q. Do you have a favorite story from your work?

A. I work with families who have a child with a disability. If possible, we prefer that the child have the ability to complete our testing. One of our greatest success stories started training her dog with her mom at 8 years old. She was close to 10 by her graduation date. She was not only able to complete all the testing, but as part of her final testing, she was able to train her dog to open the door of the refrigerator, take out a sandwich in a baggie and hand it to her.
