The Freckled Paw has been helping dogs and their owners communicate more effectively since 2012. Pet guardians and I have worked together to figure out the root of their pups misbehavior and the most effective way to get everyone back on the same path. If you are in the Hampton Roads or Northeast North Carolina area, and need some help with your pup, contact me today!

I have 3 dogs, who are all continuously teaching me how to be a better advocate for the dogs I work with. Opal who is the namesake for The Freckled Paw. She is 17 years old and taught me the most about how to live with challenging dogs while we worked through her separation anxiety, stranger danger, and dog selective behaviors.

Pixie is my 5 year old American Pit Bull Terrier who competes in Dock Diving, AKC Rally Obedience, and hand her Canine Good Citizen Certification.

Opie, my 8 year old Border Collie mix,  is my husbands dog. He has excellent canine social skills and can often be found helping clients and their pups feel more comfortable around their doggy counterparts. He also is working toward his Therapy Dog certification, and competes in Barn Hunt.

We just welcomed a Belgian Malinois puppy to the fold. Cargo was born on July 15th of this year, and she has been so much fun! I have many sport aspirations for her, but for now I am letting her learn how to be a great pet, and just be a puppy!
