Tina started training dogs in 1979. She assisted her parents with classes, puppy rearing, training and even stewarded at many matches and shows. Her love of dogs and love of teaching led her to working with dogs and families. She specializes in fear and aggression as well as in providing safety programs.
In 2005 Tina authored her first book, “90 Days to the Perfect Puppy” which has had rave reviews by other training professionals and customers alike. This book is now being released as part of an online puppy rearing program.
Originally from upstate New York, Tina has lived in Georgia since 1995. She has three dogs of her own – a Parsons Russell Terrier named Shorty and a Papillion/Dachshund cross named Stuart, a Jack Russell cross, Scruffy and Marco, the Potcake (feral island dogs), from Turks & Caicos Islands. She’s a Mom and a Grandmother to three beautiful grandchildren.
Tina is also learning photography and sidelines shooting motorsports events like motorcycle road racing and car road racing.
