Experienced Animal Trainer
I founded Covenant Keeper's K9 Training Facility in 2017. My services are fully-certified, involving collaborations with veterinarians as needed.
I was raised on farms and ranches on the western slope of Colorado, attributing to my love for animals. At a young age, I knew I wanted to work with animals. I have worked in the animal care field since the age of 12 and have been training animals since the age of 16. As a senior in High School I professionally trained my 1st canine, a 1 year old Siberian Husky, for competition. I have trained wild mustangs from the BLM and multiple horses from weanling gentling to advanced saddle work. I have taken multiple dogs through the AKC Good Canine Citizen evaluation (CGC) and have titled one of my dogs as a National and International Champion in conformation/showmanship. I currently train my own dogs for dock diving, scent work, rally and obedience competitions. I also am the dog leader for Delta County 4-H, helping the kids learn to train and build bonds with their dogs. I graduated from the Karen Pryor Academy for Animal Behavior and Training in June 2017. I am a Fear Free Certified Professional, and have completed the Fear Free Certification, Fear Free Puppy and Kitten and Leadership courses. I have also completed the Better Veterinary Visits course through the Karen Pryor Academy. I am a member of the Animal Behavior Society, International Association Of Animal Behavior Consultants (IAABC), Association of Professional Dog Trainers (APDT) and International Association of Canine Professionals (IACP). I am a Canine Life and Social Skill (CLASS) Evaluator and AKC CGC Evaluator, AKC Trick Dog Evaluator and AKC Farm Dog Certification Judge. I enjoy learning and strive to be the best I can and will continue to grow and add to these certifications.
On my free time you will find me in the great outdoors, hicking, fishing, hunting, camping and paddle boarding with my husband Josh and our 3 daughters, Cambria, Xavia and Savannah, and our multitude of dogs. My beautiful girls share in my love and passion of animals and compete in dog shows and 4H.
