Need Help With Your Rescue Dog Who is 7+ Years Old?

Whether you’re looking for advice on how to train your 7+ year old dog or you’re looking for care advice, dog parenting 101 is THE place to be for all your senior dog care questions and needs.

Here’s how I can help!


We don’t often know a rescue dog’s history, and have no idea how well trained her or she is.

It’s possible she didn’t get much of that in a previous home, so you’ll be starting from scratch. It’s also possible you’ve rescued a well trained dog, but needs a refresher after having spent so much time in a shelter.

Care Consulting (This is about health and wellness)

  • What to expect as your dog gets older
  • What’s a normal sign of aging and what could signal a health concern

Why work with me?

I have been a dog trainer for 12 years, and I’ve been fostering and adopting senior dogs for that same amount of time. I have helped hundreds of people train and care for dogs of all ages, and now I am focusing on my greatest passion – senior dogs.
