I have been working in the pet care industry for approximately seven years now. I managed a daycare and pet boarding facility for four years and prior to that, I was a Kennel Supervisor for two years with a facility located in New Hampshire. More recently, I have worked as a Vet Tech in a general practice and emergency setting, as well as with a local animal shelter. Working as a Vet Tech has provided me with the opportunity to gain the knowledge and hands on experience of the medical aspect involved in providing care to both canines and felines. I have aspired to work with animals since I was a child and have always had a true passion toward them. I have years of experience in a canine pack environment, as well as one on one with most dog breeds. I also have personal experience, as I have two rescue dogs of my own. I feel this is very important when dealing with a client's pet, as it provides the assurance that their pet is in good hands. In addition to dogs, I have grown up living with cats my whole life. I also have worked with cats in both shelter and veterinary settings. From a ferrel cat to a lap cat, I have experienced both, yet love them all the same! I can confidently medicate any animal if necessary, including pilling to providing insulin injections. My main focus is currently working in the animal care field and furthering my education with my CVT. I absolutely love working in an environment where the focus is caring for animals. My ultimate goal is to own a rescue some day. I feel as though my passion for animals and my prior experience would be a great match for you and your pet! I look forward to hearing from you regarding your furry family members' needs!

“Every dog’s different & all deserve the same love!”

I‘ve been a Wag! Walker for year & have been an avid dog lover all my life! I’ve had two very different dogs; my first was a German Shepherd named Tash, a beautiful dog with enormous strength—so rewarding to train and be around. I currently own a finicky, anxious Mini Pinscher who I adore! I know Boston well and have been around animals my entire life, so I know how to earn a dog’s trust before taking control of the leash. I believe in positive reinforcement with dogs, & I think they do too!

About Dog Training in Arlington, MA

Training Fun Fact #1:

Is your dog tiny and cute as a button? They may be part of the AKC’s Toy Group. Miniature Poodles, Pugs, and Yorkies are all under the toy umbrella. They may be mini-mutts but they demand the same attention and exercise that big dogs do. A brisk walk twice a day is ideal. These pooches love a game of fetch, too!

Training Fun Fact #2:

Every dog needs to know basic commands. Having the ability (and willingness) to do what is asked is just as much about safety as it is obedience. Puppies as young as seven or eight weeks of age can learn simple commands like “sit” and “down”. Taking them for formal dog training is typically later, after vaccines are complete.

Training Fun Fact #3:

Are you the happy pet parent of a Dualanese? Developed from the Bolognese and the Havanese, this perky pooch has a long coat that will vary in texture depending on which genes are most predominant. Either way, this fluffy-coated pupper will need to trained to be patient during thegrooming of their lengthy coat.

Dog Training in Arlington, MA

Arlington is proud of its dog-friendly status. This town, with its ample green spaces and pooch-approved trails, is a haven for anyone who loves the outdoors. Dogs abound and it’s no surprise that obedience classes fill up quickly every session.

What types of dogs are aiming for top of the class when training with Arlington dog trainers? You are sure to see the outgoing Labrador Retriever. After all, they are the number one dog in most of America. They are keen to try any task and eager to please, and have the smarts to learn, too!

The Golden Retriever is another fan favorite, as is the German Shepherd. With “Hello, I’m here” gaits and grins that show they are game for anything, these agile dogs are happy to be partners for life. 

Is a smaller dog more your style? The Yorkshire Terrier and the French Bulldog are pawpular in these parts. They are a dynamic duo for sure, happy to trot along by your side. Both of these pupsters have attitudes bigger than life and will need training to keep them at their best.

Every dog is a treasure, deserving the best home and loving family. Responsible pet parenting includes regular vet visits and allowing your woofer to join in on the fun of dog training. Team up with a local dog trainer on the Wag! app and your furry companion will be the best-trained dog on the block!
