Meet Your Trainer


About Me

My name is Dana, and I specialize in working with small dogs and the people who love them. 

I began my training career after working for the second largest rescue in my state. Through time, I’ve fostered over 200 dogs. What I found is that I had a real soft spot for small dogs with big behavioral complications. My first and second fosters became permanent members of our family when I was concerned that leash reactivity and fear based behaviors would lead to them returning into the system time and again. In all, I’ve adopted seven small dogs, most with behavioral challenges. This started my passion for helping people, and their little dogs, learn how to navigate life together. A passion that’s created a better chance for these dogs to thrive with the people they love. 

Over the ten years I’ve spent in the industry, I have helped thousands of owners gain a life they can enjoy living with their dogs

After all, isn’t that what we’re all looking for?
