Specializing in behavior solutions and private training, Annie has been working with dogs and their owners for 13 years now with incredible success. Annie and her family moved to Trenton, Illinois in December 2018 after living in Aviano, Italy for the past four years. During her time there, Annie ran the pet dog training program on the Air Force Base and started up the first non-profit animal rescue to assist military families with adopting and rehoming their pets. Her personal dog, Emma, is a 12 year old yellow Lab, a CGC certified therapy dog and a well-seasoned training assistant. Her newest member of the family, Rue, is a 4 year old Pitbull/Husky rescue.
