CaninePaws Dog Training     

A Trained Dog is a Happy Dog 

About Me

I've had a love for dogs my entire life.  I've been training since 1982 when I started training my own dog in  which led me to training other people's dogs.  In 2001 a beautiful Golden Retriever came into my life and it was with him that I got interested in Therapy Dogs.  After a 6 week training course, we became a certified therapy team with Bright and Beautiful Therapy Dogs, we have been working as a therapy team ever since.

I'm a certified Therapy Dog Evaluator and my dogs Jake and Angel are certified as Test dogs.
I'm a member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers and an AKC Canine Good Citizen Evaluator.

In 2002 I became an Instructor with Town and Country Obedience Club located in Union County, NJ. And joined the world of Obedience competition.  Besides conducting classes for competition,  I taught  puppy classes, basic obedience, novice and intermediate obedience.  I'm always adding to my knowledge of dogs and their behavior by attending lectures and seminars to stay on top of the latest training methods.

My services include Obedience training, Behavior problems, Therapy dog training and training for Service Dogs for owners that prefer to train their own service dog.  My goal is to help you build a bond of trust and love with your canine family member.
I understand the strain in having an excitable, disobedient or problematic dog as I've been there. That is why I built CaninePaws to help others
