Breanne started training at a young age when she taught her Poodle mix to roll-over and shake hands, and has been utilizing her skills ever since.
She competes with her Papillons in AKC Rally®, obedience, agility, flyball, conformation, and AKC Canine Good Citizen®. Her retired Papillon also performed therapy work at local hospitals.
Breanne rode horses for many years, and competed in hunter/jumpers. She applied dog training principles to horse training. An engineer by profession, she also teaches dog training classes, including agility and obedience, at a dog training facility.
Breanne believes in positive reinforcement training and using each dog’s preferences to shape their behavior. ”With consistency and the right motivation, any dog can learn to live happily with its human family.”
