How did you get started doing this type of work?
Brianne grew up in the suburbs of Detroit. She spent her summers at the family cabin collecting frogs and chasing wildlife. Her interest in animals grew and she spent her summers during high school volunteering at the Michigan Humane Society. While attending college in northern Michigan she was head of adoptions at the local humane society. She completed an internship at a veterinary clinic and entered into Veterinary Technology. Attending a private college in Denver she obtained her degree in Veterinary Technology. She eventually advanced her way to opening and supervising a 24-hour Critical Care hospital in Las Vegas. While in Vegas she was given the opportunity to meet and work with some of the world's most renowned dog trainers and decided to become a dog trainer. Being a dog trainer was once a hobby, has now turned into an overwhelming passion. Helping people improve and strengthen the bond between them and their dog is a dream come true. Being a dog trainer and enjoying watching a family come together as they teach their dog new skills and tricks fills each day with satisfaction and pride.

Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
Rosie was a very timid and scared standard poodle.... Did I mention she is beautiful? We because she is! Mom would take her to the groomer regularly, but Rosie disagreed that she needed to go. The groomer would tell how Rosie would snarl and growl while she was in the cage. Many employees at the groomer were concerned that Rosie was going to hurt them. She was so sweet, but so scared. Rosie completed 6 lessons and now loves to go to public stores like Home Depot, Petsmart, and even the groomer. Mom is so very excited about Rosie's new confidence!
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
It is important that you as the dog owner, contact the right person for the needs of your dog and you. Some things to consider when looking of hiring a dog trainer are:
Know what you want your dog to learn. Could be a combination of any of the following:
c. Athletic skills
f. Aggression management
g. Or a magnitude of other possibilities
Know what you are and are not comfortable with and hire a trainer that respects that. Not everyone is comfortable with choke chains, pinch collars, or electric collars. Some don't want a response from their dog only if they get a treat. Talk to your trainer and see if their recommendations are suitable.
What is your budget and are your expectations realistic?
Do you want your dog to learn in a class environment or a private setting?

What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Dog Training isn't easy. It's just the opposite. You have to be patient not only with the dog, but his owner as well. All the repetition can be exhausting. But I have been in the field of Veterinary Medicine since 2003. I have worked thousands and thousands of hours in the Emergency and Critical Care unit. Never, have I ever, had such a rewarding feeling for a job well done as I have with Dog Training. Bonding a human to their dog is one of the very best feelings you can ever experience.
