more about Andrea

I’m Andrea. I’ve been training dogs professionally for about 5 years now. In 2011, I adopted the most amazing dog who has gone through every behavioral issue in the book – for the last 8 years. I worked with many trainers and behavioral consultants, and they’ve made me a better trainer & behavioral consultant.

I belong to a ton of professional groups, do a ton of continuing education, and after all that I am a Certified Professional Dog Trainer. Important, but not everything.

How Different

The difference between me and other dog trainers & behavior consultants, is that I love the other end of the leash just as much as the dogs. That’s you.  I’ve found this love makes a earth shattering difference because it allows me to teach you and your dog the way you learn best! All of my teaching is tailored to you!

I have an A+ rating with Better Business Bureau and am a professional member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers, Building Blocks Academy, the American Kennel Club, and the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers.

Behavioral Issues

I focus my work on behavior issues including anxiety, fear, reactive, and aggressive dogs. I can also help you through your distracted, hyper, unfocused dog as well! I have an entire toolbox of techniques but mainly train using positive reinforcement techniques that focus on teaching your dog to make good choices and to listen to you in and outside your home!

How It Happened

In 2011, I left my career to finish my degree in IT. So, we adopted a dog! (Dumb idea. Worlds best idea.) He was still a teenager but truly has been perpetually nightmare. I wouldn’t trade Tank for the world.

  • I’ve personally dealt with everything with this dog from separation anxiety, biting a dog, destruction, noise phobias, and more. I made myself a dog trainer. Tank made me a behavior consultant. We battled it all – together. Our relationship is strong because of it!
  • He is an awesome pit bull, partner, and kid!
