About

Horses have been my passion. I have a full care facility for vacation care or short-term stabling. When needed, travel to help care for farms or pets is available.

About

I have been working with animals and instructing people since 1982. Initially focused on equines, I've provided countless hours of group and private riding lessons and judged local horse shows. My students and I have competed in both English and Western venues. I've served on the Board of Directors for Riding Unlimited and dedicated 4 years to the White Tanks Mounted Search and Rescue Team. In 1992, I successfully developed and implemented an Equestrian Therapy Program for a long-term residential treatment center serving chemical-dependent adolescents in Texas. Likewise, my experience with canines is just as strong and diverse. I've instructed in obedience, tracking and K9 Nose Work and have trained and handled narcotic and explosive dogs. A strong advocate for animal rescue, I've adopted several dogs and subsequently dealt with a variety of behavioral issues. I successfully trained my rescued Siberian Husky as a certified therapy dog and visited hospitals and nursing homes. I am currently an ANWI pursuing CNWI certification and teaching K9 Nose Work classes in Southern Oregon. Additionally, I am an AKC Canine Good Citizen evaluator, AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy evaluator, and a Canine Life and Social Skills instructor. Other professional affiliations include the Association of Professional Dog Trainers, the United Schutzhund Clubs of America, the North American Dog Agility Council, Canine Performance Events, the American Kennel Club, and the National Association of Canine Scent Work, LLC. Having the belief that continuous learning is key, I attend seminars on a variety of training methodologies. I understand everyone's experience levels and goals are unique and that personalized service is essential (one size does not fit all!). I am dedicated to learning about your personal goals and committed to building a training program that is focused on your specific needs.
