Creating More Harmonious Homes . . .

One Dog at a Time.


I am thrilled to announce that after nearly 20 years of working toward this goal, I have achieved my Associate Certified Applied Animal Behaviorist (ACAAB). With this career-goal achievement comes a new chapter. Beginning May, 2021 I will be returning to working with private behavior clients full time. I am available for in-person sessions in the greater St. Charles, MO area. I am available nationally for remote training sessions via Zoom.

Knowledge, Experience and Compassion


ALL DOGS NEED TRAINING. In order to be a happy, confident and well-behaved family member, it is necessary to teach your dog what is expected of him in your home. Every dog has a unique personality and disposition. Because of this, every dog needs to be trained differently. This requires a unique trainer, with a wide range of experience and a wealth of knowledge. Whether you have a young puppy or an older dog, whether you need specific behavior guidance or basic manners assistance - you need expert guidance to effectively train your canine companion. Nutz About Mutz! is both patient and flexible in training approaches, adjusting techniques to suit each individual dog's needs. If you love your dog, you can count on Nutz About Mutz! to train with love and compassion, using scientifically proven force-free techniques.
