Autumn has been working with animals since 1997, when she volunteered at Texas A&M's Wildlife & Exotic Animal Center.

For the past 10-years, Autumn has been working with dogs and handlers to help each find their own individual successes. During that time, she graduated from the Virginia Department of Emergency Management's Ground Search and Rescue College and was actively searching with her German Shepherd, K9 Cooper. She also spent years training around the New Bern Police Department's K-9 Unit and completed the Principles of Dog Training with Michael Ellis.

My Clients Rock

My greatest accomplishments come from hearing about clients' continued growth and development in their relationships with doggie partners.

There is no "I" in teamwork so I am only as successful as my client’s progress. Honesty and an open approach to each client and their beloved pet is my mission.
