She is recommended by veterinarians, colleagues, shelters, rescues and clients for her expertise in working challenging behavior cases.

Christine is passionate about helping families and their pet companions communicate and supports the belief that when both family and dog "speak" the same language, they reach a mutual respect and understanding that reconnects them as a whole.  This sets everyone on a path towards training success. 

She is actively involved in the rehabilitation of shelter and rescue dogs and works closely with those communities to help dogs find loving homes.   

When not working with dogs and their families, Christine enjoys her free time with her husband, Phil, and their two dogs, Carter and Winkie.
