Professional Dog Trainer
Brandi’s passion for dogs started at a very young age. She grew up on a farm in Central Alabama where she spent most of her time helping tend to different kinds of animals. After relocating, Brandi found time to dedicate to the local humane societies where she worked to help make the lives of those animals better and give back to her community. From there her passion for helping dogs only grew! While attending Troy University, Brandi became a veterinarian technician for a local veterinarian in Auburn, Alabama. She has obtained her Bachelor of Science in Psychology with a concentration in Applied Behavior Analysis to better understand why animals and humans behave the way that they do so she can apply those methods to the aspects of dog training.
Brandi has been mentored by trainers with more than 15+ years of experience throughout her professional dog training career. Brandi specializes in reactive/aggressive dogs, as she finds so much joy in helping the underdogs. She also strongly believes in continuing her training education because training is an ever-changing field that requires adaptability and a willingness to learn more. Brandi is an active member of the International Association for Canine Professionals and a certified Canine Good Citizen Evaluator! She finds joy in helping people and dogs alike!
