At the age of 11 she had a horse that she trained herself. She participated in 4-H competitions, and went on to win many ribbons throughout her youth. As an adult, Donna has raised and bred Golden Retrievers for over 30 years. With her own dogs, she participates in Competition Obedience, Rally, Agility and has 3 Therapy Dogs. She has won many titles and ribbons with her dogs. She belongs to several professional associations including the Association of Pet Dog Trainers, the Golden Retriever Club of America and is a participant in the Golden Retriever Lifetime Study with her “Hero” Tellie.

She is also available to assist you and your canine companion with any behavior issues you may have.
Her training philosophy is based on building the canine/human relationship. Positive interaction and consistency facilitate faster learning and can solve some existing behavior challenges. Using a balance of meaningful rewards and proven scientific techniques she provides safe, humane and effective dog training.
Donna’s lifetime love of animals is apparent. Donna shares her home with 5 Golden Retrievers, Tellie, Tucker, Topaz, Mojo and Tanner. She takes pride in her work with animals, and will treat your pet as one of her own
