I have worked and trained dogs for over 18 years. I have always loved animals. My childhood was spent with dogs and cats around the house and every summer I spent at Hoskin Stables grooming and riding, horses. I'm currently training my dog Cedar.
For many winters, I worked in South River, Ontario, as a dog sled guide with Chocpaw Expeditions. This is where I realized that I loved handling and working with dogs. From there I took courses in dog training and behaviour, working at multiple doggy daycare and training facilities. For the past 9 years I have worked as a vet assistant/receptionist at the Pet Hospital on Main in Uxbridge.
I am a Mom of 2 beautiful children and spend my days as a dog walker. I also work part-time as a professor in the Animal Care Program at Durham College teaching Animal Handling and Restraint.
I am a firm believer in continuing education, and attend as many seminars and conferences to keep myself as up to date and as current as possible.
I am currently Pet First Aid certified with Walks n Wags.
