As a lifelong animal welfare advocate, I never have and never will use pain or fear to make a dog behave. It has been proven by decades of scientific research that kindness and respect are essential to successful training. 

I am an honors graduate of The Academy for Dog Trainers, where I earned my Certification in Training and Counseling (CTC). The Academy is an advanced two year course of study that is highly regarded as the "Harvard for dog trainers." I'm a Certified Professional Dog Trainer, Knowledge-Assessed, a member of Pet Professional Guild and the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants. I have also completed the Aggression in Dogs Master Course.

As a staff member of the San Francisco SPCA Behavior & Training team, I worked extensively with shelter dogs in need of behavior modification. I also specialized in enrichment and welfare, puppy socialization, and taught ongoing classes for staff and volunteers. I further honed my skills at the East Bay SPCA where I taught public dog training classes.

No matter the problem, I am well equipped to provide solutions. My goal is for dog guardians to come away with:

  • Decreased stress

  • A polite, well behaved dog

  • Confidence in their new skills

  • A strengthened bond through better understanding

I make training simple, enjoyable, and efficient. I am here to support you every step of the way.

My biggest concern when searching for pet care is whether or not I can trust them to care for my furry family member. Rarely do I feel they will care as much as I do. Most often I rely on reviews to make sure a pet has not been mistreated. That is not the case with Diamond Dogs! This business cares about your pet. The owner puts her heart into this business because she loves pets as much as you do. You can trust that when your pup is with Diamond Dogs, they are in the best hands possible!
