Learn About Your Amazing Dog

Are you interested in learning more about your dog’s amazing abilities? Dogs Deciphered brings you K9 Nose Work® classes to help you tap in to your dog’s instinctual drive to hunt. By learning how to read your dog in a search, you will learn about canine olfaction and behavior. This activity helps shy dogs gain confidence, and wild dogs to control themselves, all dogs will benefit!

When it comes to helping dogs and their humans, experience and education both matter. I have been working with dogs my entire life, and have been employed in the pet industry for 15+ years. My degree in Biology from Colorado State University taught me to use a scientific approach to my work, and honed my critical thinking skills. Keeping up-to-date with continuing education within my field allows me to refine my approach to meet your individual needs.

Two-Way Communication With Your Dog

Dogs and humans co-evolved to live and work together. This is why my approach focuses on two-way communication. By building a strong foundation of cooperation, we can learn to work together with our dogs toward common goals. The Dogs Deciphered philosophy is based on modern, dog-friendly methods that are presented in a straight-forward manner that you will be able to understand and implement.
