I’ve been professionally training dogs since 2008. I personally trained over 4,000 dogs & families in Charlotte. My unique training method I created is so effective, 7-8 of my former employees use it on their dog training companies. Creating a full second and third generation of dog trainers that use my methods.

Now I am back helping dog trainers and dog owners to not only train their dogs… but learn how to nurture a strong friendship with them.

Ever since I was young I have always been interested in dogs. I’ve grown up always having one in the family and have always strived to build a relationship with any dog I met. I never thought I would have a career or a life so involved with dogs but I’m so happy that it turned out this way!

After high school I had planned on becoming a helicopter pilot (my dream since I was a kid.) Unfortunate circumstances during flight school prevented me from continuing that endeavor. It was shortly after this that my wife Brittany got me in touch with Turk and the rest is history. After spending a lot of time learning from and training side by side with Turk, it’s such an honor to be teamed up with him again.

Since 2017 I’ve been helping countless families achieve a better lifestyle with their dogs, and it’s been one of the greatest honors of my life. I’m so excited about what the future holds and would love to work with you and your dog.

I have a deep love for dogs ever since I trained three Golden Retrievers for my family. I first learned about dog training in high school through books and my own love for dogs.

I have found that lots of love, praise, and rewards go a long way in training. I have even used these techniques to raise my children!

I am excited to share my knowledge and experience with others to help them build strong, loyal relationships with their dogs. Let me help you become the best dog owner you can be!

Ever since Turk trained my family’s golden doodle a decade ago, my fascination with animal behavior ignited.

And, I have expanded my knowledge and skills in dog training significantly through my active participation in UNCW’s Assistance Dog Training program, where I assist in the training of diverse service dogs. This program encompasses the training of various service dog types, including psychiatric service dogs, medical alert dogs, and mobility dogs.

Book a consultation from below so together, we can work towards creating a harmonious relationship and unlocking your dog’s full potential.

I have an extreme love and compassion for dogs. I’ve owned (parented) 10 dogs over my adult life. My husband and I currently have Charlie & Gunner.

I began my journey as a client with Turk in 2015 with Delta and a year later rescued Charlie and signed up for another year (many times taking both dogs to group lessons).

I began working for Turk as a group leader in 2016. I very much enjoy working with dogs and their humans to ensure that both get the most out of the relationship.
