I'm happy to report that you can teach an old dog new tricks! Koda was 10 years old when I began clicker training with her. A clicker is a device that makes a "click" sound telling the dog that's exactly the behavior requested. She picked it up fast and loved it when I pulled out the clicker to work with her. She and I developed a deeper relationship through clicker training and I can't recommend it highly enough. It really works! I'm excited to help other dog owners develop a deeper understanding of their dogs through clicker training.
I followed my passion for all things dog related by becoming a personal dog trainer. After volunteering at Seattle Humane
for two years I discovered a love of dog training. Eager to learn more I took all the classes they offered. Then my dog, Koda, and I were accepted to the Karen Pryor Academy Certified Dog Training program. I am ready to help others become clicker savvy. I continue to volunteer at the shelter doing dog assessments, helping with the behavior program and teaching classes.
My new passion is the creation of a new nonprofit, Humane Alliance of Rescue Trainers (HART)! It's a great way for certified trainers to give back. Check us out at
