Susan’s story begins with her hamster training at age 7. She started dog training at the curious age of 10, reading many books. After taking her first group dog training class in 1986, she began her apprenticeship and formal training in 1988. With us since the beginning, Susan teaches classes of all levels and offers private lessons to manage and lessen dog-to-dog aggression. She is also a Tellington Touch Practitioner (Level One). Susan’s reason for being in this career is simple: “I love dogs. I want them to have a good life and be understood and appreciated by their people.” Susan has added to her 20+ years of experience by attending several seminars and filling her shelves with breed and training books. She and her dogs also play flyball, and participate in competition obedience, weight pull and sledding.
