I live and train locally in the Westchester/Bronx area. My mission is to provide family friendly dog training with an emphasis on positive reinforcement. I have been a certified trainer (www.ccpdt.com) for 20 years and I continue to educate myself in all things dog by attending seminars and workshops presented by some of the finest dog trainers, behaviorists and veterinarians in the country. I have worked and volunteered with shelters and rescues in NYC, Westchester and Duchess County, and I am currently the trainer for Pet Rescue NY. In 2013 I co-founded a non-profit rescue, www.bestbullies.org, in which we rescue dogs and cats from high volume shelters then get them the medical help they need and train them to become wonderful adoptable pets. I currently have 4 dogs, a Pit Bull, an American Bully and 2 Chihuahuas, and one pet rat.
