Meet Our Team
Brittany has always had a strong love of animals, which she fostered from an early age with her participation in horseback riding, as well as her volunteer work at the humane society.
After graduating high school, Brittany went to UW Madison to pursue a degree in veterinary medicine. Dog training wasn’t a popular career option at the time, so veterinary medicine was the career recommended if you wanted to work with animals. After a few years at UW Madison, Brittany realized veterinary medicine wasn’t her passion.
She moved back home to help her parents open their horse farm. While working on the horse farm, she was hired at Petsmart to work as a dog trainer. It was there that she realized her passion was in the learning aspect of animals versus the medical.
She enrolled in Carroll University and graduated in 2017 with her bachelor’s degree in Animal Behavior. She became a certified dog trainer in April 2017 through the Certification of Professional Dog Trainers, and she earned her behavior consultant certification in August 2017 through the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants. In 2020 she became a member of Force Free Trainers of Wisconsin.
In her spare time, Brittany travels across the United States attending seminars and lectures hosted by experts in the field in order to further her knowledge and skills in animal behavior.
When she is not attending seminars or working, she is usually hiking with her three dogs, Clay, Arya, and Ginny, or curled up on the couch reading with her two cats, Cali and Atticus.
Our Training Methods
My training philosophy is built around utilizing a fear-free, reward-based approach. Positive reinforcement methods have been shown to strengthen the human-animal bond by bridging the communication gap between you and your dog. By rewarding correct answers, and reworking wrong answers, I can get you and your dog started on the path to success.
Each training session is tailored to the needs of both you and you dog. The dog training industry is ever changing. By keeping up to date with the latest research, I can ensure that you and your dog are getting the best training out there.
