Heather is a life-long animal lover and has been privately and professionally training dogs since 2010 During her time as a dog trainer and shelter volunteer she has found herself loving with all breeds and personalities of dogs, but has always gravitated towards nervous, anxious, and fear-aggressive dogs. This often comes in the form of misunderstood small breeds. Over her tenure in animal care, she has fostered and worked with dogs of all shapes and sizes. In addition to her two Animal Science degrees, she has attended CATCH Canine Trainers Academy, and is an AKC Canine Good Citizen evaluator.
Heather enthusiastically utilizes force-free training practices to teach owners to train their dogs to become the best versions of themselves. Heather lives with her husband, three chihuahuas, an elderly beagle, and foster animals.
