Wanted to help out any dog in need but realized that she could not since there were restrictions, that's why she opened her own business - so she could help as many dogs in need as possible without restrictions
Opened Alpha Dog Center in 2008 for dog daycare, training, boarding, & grooming.
"If there are dogs or people who need help, I am going to do what I need to do to help out."
"I think any dog, at any age, can be helped - as long as their owner is willing to do the work that is required. The dogs are always willing to "feel better," it's just hard for the people to accept their dog's behavior issues, and find out that we, the owners, are the cause of the behaviors."

Continuously works with local shelters to evaluate, train if needed, and help adopt dogs out.
