I moved to Grass Valley in 1989 to pursue a career that would involve my passion for dogs and horses. I have been involved in the equine community since the day I arrived. Breeding, training and showing Quarter Horses. I started working as a veterinary assistant in 1999 and still enjoy helping animals and the people who love them.
I have had a lifelong love for dogs and started my training with Top Dog in 2016, first as a student then as an assistant trainer. With the instruction, help and advice from my instructors and mentors, JoAnn Fine the founder and previous owner of Top Dog Obedience and Taylor Davis, Top Dog's primary trainer for over a decade.I was ready to purchase the business and continue this very successful training program. I believe that you never stop learning and I always continue my education whenever there is an opportunity and love passing on what I know to help people and their dogs.
Under the guidance of Taylor Davis I have successfully competed in Rally Obedience with my dog Arlo. I am an AKC Canine Good Citizen Evaluator and an AKC Farm Dog Certification Judge.
I will be holding annual CGC tests at the Top Dog facility in Grass Valley
