About Asheville Dog Company


I have all my life and anyone who has spent any time with me can tell you that I am passionate about training and dogs in general. After graduating from Cornell University with a degree in Animal Sciences, I moved to Asheville and immersed myself in dog behavior and training.

For more than 15 years, I have had the pleasure of helping hundreds of families learn to better understand their furry friends. Through my time at Cornell and the thousands of hours of hands on experience I have become the trainer I am today. I am still learning, growing and adapting my skills to better serve my clients. Nothing brings me more joy than helping an owner resolve tough problems, learn a new skill, or just build a better bond with their dog.

When I’m not training other peoples dogs, I am actively training and competing with my own German Shepherds in the exciting sport of IPO (formerly Schutzhund). This is one of the ultimate tests of training handler and dog!
