Hello

I'm Pine, a dynamic dog trainer and behaviour specialist based in Idaho. I've built a thriving dual presence, offering local and online dog training services to clients across the nation. My credentials include being a certified trainer through the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers, as well as recognition from Fear Free, the Ian Dunbar Academy, and the Association of Pet Dog Trainers.

Know more about me!

I proudly serve as the head trainer and canine adoption coordinator for Lake Lowell Animal Rescue. My expertise extends globally, consulting on behaviour cases for HSUS and international behaviour challenges. I'm honoured as the top recommended trainer for Modern Animal in California. Beyond training, I lead a 500+ strong community dedicated to enjoying outdoor adventures with dogs. With a background as an experienced trail guide, I passionately advocate for dogs in wilderness pursuits. 

 

Currently establishing a unique school, I'll focus on training human-canine duos to be exceptional trail companions, along with excelling in outdoor activities like biking, kayaking, and paddleboarding. Rooted in my upbringing on a horse farm, my journey began with constructing agility courses for our German shepherd. 

 

Today, my thirst for knowledge continues as I stay at the forefront of the field through courses, seminars, and academic research. My family includes five dogs, a horse trained using positive reinforcement principles, and three charming cats, two of whom are clicker-trained.
