Carol has shared her knowledge with hundreds of students and their dogs through classes she held with the Greater St Louis Training Club (GSLTC) and privately. She encourages her students to look at the whole dog. Understanding the emotional side of their dog, her students are able to build canine-human relationships of trust and respect. Learning positive reinforcement marker training, her students acquire training skills to train their dog in tasks of multiple levels of difficulty, never compromising the relationship. Carol feels there is nothing more rewarding than seeing the human canine bond develop. She believes positive reinforcement marker training techniques enhance this bond through communication, understanding and respect, helping dogs and their guardians live happy long lives together.
Currently, Carol is lead trainer of Puppy Elementary and Foundation Manners classes. She also leads and assists with multiple specialty classes such as Moving with Your Dog, a class focusing on loose leash walking, Puppy Kindergarten, Games and Canine Good Citizen Prep. She is editor and contributes to the GSLTC newsletter, Obediently Yours, serves as an officer on the GSLTC Board of Directors and serves on the GSLTC Training and Marketing Committees.
She also trains her own dogs Gilbert and Scout in scent activities, obedience skills, tricks, canine parkour and to be more comfortable around other dogs.
