I am SO GLAD you are here!
I started Pups with a Purpose to combine my passion for helping people with obsession with helping dogs. Dogs can do INCREDIBLE things and I want to help you and your pup find their purpose in life. I look forward on guiding you on this dog training journey.
BA in Psychology (Emphasis in School Psychology) -University of Nebraska at Omaha
I filled my course schedule with classes focused in motivation, learning, and cognitive development. In these classes, I cultivated my passion for making the world a better place for kids. Today, I use what I learned in these courses to guide dogs and their people on a path to helping others and changing the world.
In 2018 and 2019, I successfully completed the Life Changing Dog Training Apprenticeship Program where I studied dog behavior while assisting on training private sessions and group classes ranging from basic behavior to serious behavior modification. I completed over 450 hours of hands on training and became certified in The Life Changing Dog Training Process.
