My husband, I, our 6 dogs and cat moved to the area in January, 2015 from Dubois, PA. My daughter and I vacationed at North Topsail Beach for two years and fell in love with the region.
We had a Doggie Daycare, Training Center and Retail Store in DuBois, PA. We were the only store in the area selling only food and treats made in the USA. I had three or four weekly Basic Obedience and/or Therapy Dog classes averaging eight dogs per class. I am an Animal Behavior College Certified Dog Trainer and a Precision Pet Certified Dog Trainer. I am also an approved AKC Evaluator for the Canine Good Citizen, STAR Puppy, & Community Canine Dog Advanced Certificate.
I started a LOVE ON A LEASH Therapy Dog chapter in DuBois in 2012 and will be started a chapter in this area later this summer. We regularly went to the hospital, nursing homes and assisted living. One of our graduates became a library dog that the children with reading problems would read to. I have a currently Therapy Dog Class of 4 dogs about to complete the program.
In 2014 I started LEFT PAW - RIGHT PAW SERVICE DOG TRAINING. I don't make the determination if a person needs a service dog but I can help them get their dog to the point where they can go out into public places if their physician has determined that a service dog would be beneficial to them.
I was the number one recommended trainer in the DuBois area by veterinarians and groomers and hope to create a good reputation in this area also.
In the event you have friends, family, customers or employees that are looking for a dog trainer to help with their dog I would appreciate you sharing this info with them.
I have numerous former clients that could give references if needed. I also offer private in your home basic obedience lessons and/or problem solving for behavioral issues.
