Hi, my name is Holly O'Brien. I've been training dogs for over 7 years now and I love it! I have my Knowledge Assessed Certification from the Council of Professional Dog Trainers (CPDT-KA). I'm a Canine Good Citizen Evaluator and a member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers and the Pet Professional Guild. I attend seminars every year to keep current with all the new and exciting ways to help my students.
I have a Bachelor's degree in Human Resources from Western Michigan University. When I graduated, I got my first dog, Lucy, and we have been inseparable since then. I enjoyed training Lucy so much that I began helping others. One thing led to another, and I was hired by PetSmart where I received formal training. Over the next seven years, I worked my way up to be a Head Trainer and Consultant to Corporate. My grandma always said "if you love what you do, you'll never work a day in your life." I found a way to do just that!
I currently live in Kalamazoo with my husband Bob, our little girl, and two dogs.
I enjoy the challenges of training reactive dogs and dogs with behavioral issues, and I look forward to being involved more with these types of dogs. Regardless of the training issues you may have, my goal is to give you the dog that you want! Everyone has their own version of the "perfect dog" - let me help you!
