In February of 2014, I was one of the first recipients to receive a full scholarship to attend a training class with Cesar Millan at his Dog Psychology Center in California. I started the Arkansas Paws in prison program at the North Central Unit I worked with male inmates in north central Arkansas for four and half years. My passion is helping veterans I am the lead service dog trainer for Veterans sportsman Alliance (VSA) where we train and donate PTSD service dogs for free.
My training standards are very high, I believe all dogs need and deserve the opportunity to become the best companion they can be for any person or family. I use Safe and Humane Training Methods, so you and your four-legged friend will learn to bond, trust and work with each other.
