For us, the health and well-being of our clients’ dogs is what is most important to us and we work hard every day to ensure that the high standards we set for our wide range of services continue to be met.

I have had a passion for working with dogs ever since I began training them out of high school; I graduated from Hahnville High School in 2015 and have studied psychology at the University of New Orleans, training dogs along the way. I am all about getting the best results out of any dog I encounter and helping each and every dog owner out there. With my love for dogs, I am constantly wanting to work with any four-legged companion and striving to create an unbreakable bond between dogs and their owners. Get your dog the training they deserve!

I love being a Trainer for Top Dog Training Academy. With my background of puppy training has helped me step right up to the plate when it came to training older dogs. I have 5 dogs myself I see the need for training. I like the structure and the respect the dogs have after training, you get a way different perspective of dogs as a Trainer. I also work for my local fire department. I love working for the fire department because it give me a chance to help and protect my community and the people in it. One of my personal dogs does cadaver scent work and has helped in many cases all over the country.

PROFESSIONAL DOG TRAINER 

I started training because of my passion for dogs. I have learned a lot by training with some amazing Trainers in the industry. I joined Top Dog because of the family feel they created with the Clients and the Team. I have a few fur babies of my own at home and love to see how far they have come also. I would love to have the opportunity to train your fur baby and to give them the freedom that training provides.

We currently live in Kentwood, La and are wrapping up construction on a new home in Independence, La where they will have lots of room for the 5 hounds. We also have 6 wonderful children ranging from 20 years old to 10 years old. 

 

I came to Top Dog several months back with my German Shepherd puppy AJA for training and expressed interest in joining the team after seeing the results in Aja. I enjoyed the positive and personal approach Top Dog takes in training dogs to be the best they can be while creating a better relationship with there owners.
