  • Sit, Play, Stay LLC

    (81 reviews)

    I am passionate about the health, happiness and training of your dog (and other pets)! My professional career with animals has encompassed a wide range of roles that form a strong skill set for the care of your pet(s). After earning my professional dog training certification (ABC14120) in 2007 from the Animal Behavior (I am also a mentor trainer for students getting their dog training certification through Animal Behavior College), I became a veterinary technician to augment my knowledge of small animal health and behavior. These two skills lead me to a position with the behavior management department at The Jacksonville Humane Society. There I had the opportunity to evaluate and train hundreds of dogs needing a little extra help learning to behave in an appropriate manner around other dogs and people. I believe very strongly that each dog, whether he came to you as a puppy or was adopted as an adult (and everything in between), can benefit from positive training, creative enrichment, and a nice, long walk! I'd be happy to speak with you about your pets and how my services would benefit you and your family. I teach puppy, basic and intermediate obedience classes.

The Practical Pet Protocol is a step beyond the average dog training class; it is a functional method for using basic obedience to prevent dog behavior problems at home! It is designed and implemented by professional dog behavior trainers, trainers who resolve dog behavior problems like aggression, anxiety, hyperactivity, and poor manners on a full-time basis. Why group training classes? Practical Pet Protocol functional obedience classCanine Trade Group trainers realized that over half of the dog owners who seek our help for behavior issues had already gone through some kind of group training classes. Knowing how dog behavior problems develop, we realized that many of these issues could have been prevented if the owners had only been given the right information. What's missing from the average group training class is not obedience commands (most of the dogs we work with already know their commands!), it's how to use those commands. After all, what good is a "down" if you don't know how to use that to teach your dog good behavior?

What do you love about your job?

It feels good to have your own business. I have made my business into a wonderful resource for pet parents looking for certified positive reinforcement dog training, pet sitting and dog walking services. I get to help people learn how to train their dogs the right way and form a wonderful bond. I am able to have employees to help me and they are also some of my dearest friends. Our clients are wonderful and really trust us with their pets anytime they need us. I feel we offer an above and beyond ability to care for people's pets as if they were our own.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

I wanted to help people help their dogs so I became a certified dog trainer. From there, friends would ask me to pet sit. Eventually, I became unhappy of the work envirnoment that I was in and felt I could make a bigger difference by offering the community a business that offers quailty pet sitting. It's one thing to get into this type of business because you love animals, but more importantly, you need to understand and respect them.
