I began training dogs at the age of 12, but it wasn’t until the adoption of SuSu that helping dogs learn to have fun and love life became a passion. SuSu was a one year old dog of unknown background with many behavior problems. More than any other living being, she has taught me the most about dog behavior. 

One of my favorite sayings is “When life hands you lemons, make lemonade!” That’s my vision – to help you and your dog “make lemonade” by learning how to have fun together and overcome undesirable behavior.
