My Mission:

Teach People & Help Dogs

I Believe:

  • In helping frustrated and desperate dog owners make a connection with their dog.
  • Dogs are innately well-balanced. We need to remind them how to live peacefully.

My "Resume"

  • I was a marine mammal trainer for 8 years. I trained: dolphins, california sea lions, seals, walrus, and beluga whales.
  • I started The Problem Pooch in 2006.
  • A satisfied client likely referred you to me. I take an immense amount of pride in gaining my clients’ trust.

What Will You Like About Me?

  • I will be respectful and gentle with you and your dog.
  • I work in the privacy of your home – where most problems occur and where you are most comfortable.
  • I have compassion. I rescued this dog after 6-weeks on-the-run and reunited him with his family.

My Personal Life

  • Parent to a pack of dogs & a pride of cats.
  • Happily married since 2002.
  • I am an author, writer, blogger, teacher, inspirer.
  • I used to be a lot of things, like an owner, breeder, handler of AKC Champion Samoyeds. Now, I am just a less-stressed owner!a-7-28-07-champion
