What Drives Cindy

Our Mission

My mission as a dog trainer is to bring together my love of people, dogs and leadership to educate and facilitate happier, healthier relationships between our canine companions and the people who love them. I believe that our canine companions give us an incredible gift even with the most difficult of issues. The challenges they present can offer us opportunities to know ourselves and our families better. They can become a powerful catalyst for change in our lives if we are able to see, listen and learn.”

Speckles “Mr. Defensive” do not move too quick it makes me nervous.

Rescue dog abused before his new family took him in.

We started working with Cindy after an incident with our 2 yr old Dalmatian, Speckles. We had gotten him at 18 months old from our local dog shelter. After we brought him into our home it became apparent that our dog had been abused by previous owners. We knew he was hard of hearing, but he also had trust and fear issues.

Cindy came into our home to work with us, so she was able to see behaviors that never showed up in the training classes we took our dog to. Cindy helped us see the link between what we thought were small unrelated behavioral issues and how to overcome them, the best way possible for us. She worked with us and our dog to make sure that we saw and understood his particular behavior issues and how do address them. She came back regularly to monitor our progress and help us through the rough spots as they came up. Cindy taught us how to be pack leaders; without her we probably would not have been able to keep our dog. We are forever grateful to her and have her back periodically to make sure we are all still on track.
