I am pleased to announce that I passed my certification exam and am therefore CPDT-KA certified!
What does this mean? It means I have no less than 300 hours of experience as a trainer under my belt, have passed an exam testing my knowledge of several different areas pertaining to dog care, training and behavior, am dedicated to principles regarding humane training practices and approaches, and also have to maintain continuing education to maintain my certification as CPDT-KA. You can learn more about CPDT-KA certification and other certifications through the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers (CCPDT) here.
I take my profession very seriously and am lucky to do what I love! Over the three years I’ve had my business, I have worked ceaselessly with many different clients on many different levels, had the opportunity to shadow and be mentored by other great trainers, and take several amazing seminars and workshops to learn from the best positive reinforcement-based trainers and behaviorists in the world.
I will continue to strive to be the best I can be and never stop learning. I appreciate the support all my clients have given to help me learn, as well as encourage my ability to make this goal of CDPT-KA certification a reality! You are all so important to me, and I am grateful to know all of you–and grateful to encounter new clients in the future who will present even more experience and challenges for growth! 🙂
Thank you so much, and happy fall!
