Certified Dog Trainer in Charlotte NC offering Dog Training with Results!
I was born and raised in Germany, being an avid dog lover my entire life. I have trained, walked and pet sitted dogs for the past 20 years. I was always told to make dog training my profession and my opportunity came in 2008 to establish my own Dog Training Company K9-BootCamp. I graduated from Animal Behavior College and became a Certified Dog Trainer in Charlotte NC, underwent another rigorous testing by the Certification Council for Pet Dog Trainers and earned my Certified Pet Dog Trainer Certificate and I am one of the first ten dog trainers worldwide to meet the strict requirements to become a Certified Behavior Adjustment Training Instructors (CBATI). I reside in Charlotte with my husband and 3 dogs.
My passion is to help dog owners establish a great happy relationship with their dog, solve behavioral issues they may encounter with their dog and educate them at the same time to better understand their companions.
My training philosophy consists of force free dog training and positive reinforcement, which means using gentle and humane methods to train your dog or puppy to do what you want while developing mutual respect, trust and a special bond between dog and owner. I will NOT use shock (also called e-collar, tens unit or vibration collars!), prong or choke collars. I thrive to provide the best possible dog training services by attending training and continuing education on an ongoing basis.
