School: Animal Behavior College
ABC-CPDT & CGC Evaluator " Owner/ Obedience Trainer/Behavior Consultant
Ever since Mindy was a little girl competing in 4-H for Horsemanship and Dog Handling, it was evident to family and friends that she had a unique and special relationship with animals, especially with dogs. As a matter of fact, there was never a time when she did not have a dog in her life.
Mindy took her first obedience class with her Newfoundland, Tina, when she was 7 years old. Mindy continued to train all her dogs, because she loved the connection she made with them. Throughout her life Mindy educated herself by reading books and attending seminars held by renowned national trainers such as Brenda Aloff, Jean Donaldson, and Patricia McConnell. She started training dogs for friends and family, and by word of mouth, her business grew.
Mindy enrolled in Animal Behavior College, graduated with honors, and became a Certified Pet Dog Trainer! By founding Noble Beast Dog Training, Mindy combined her dog training knowledge and the ability to create bonds with people and their pets to start a company that would improve the human/pet relationship. She aims to professionally develop and offer continued education for her staff of trainers. It is essential that trainers understand that they are the key in helping as many people as possible have successful relationships with their pups through Positive Reinforcement techniques, ensuring forever homes for our beloved friends!
