Learn More About Harmonious Handling!
My passion for animals started at a very young age. As a child, it felt as though all the stray dogs and cats found me. To my mother's dismay, I was sure to bring home every animal I thought needed my help. I brought home everything, including dogs and cats, to snakes and snails.
I started working in the veterinary field when I was 16 cleaning kennels at a small Veterinary Clinic in Iowa. This has given me a better understanding of how to help you and your pets from naughty to medical-related behaviors!
As I continued on my career path, I took a particular interest in animal behavior, fear-free practices, and game-based training. I became CPDT-KA Certified and a Fear Free Certified Professional. It didn't take me long to decided to take the next step and open Harmonious Handling. I am sure you will quickly see my passion for working with animals in our time together, and I look forward to meeting you and your pup.
