Victoria is a native Wyomingite, hailing from coal country in Gillette, Wyoming. She is also a third generation dog handler whose family competed dogs in conformation and obedience in Story, Wyoming. More than “just” a dog trainer, Victoria is also an entrepreneur, advocate, and musician.
Though born into it, Victoria has never taken for granted her experience in dog training and handling.

Victoria combines her lifetime experience with a furious passion for learning and developing her expertise. Her credentials are unmatched by any dog handler or trainer in Wyoming.
From commercial breeding operations and large-scale kennels to municipal animal shelters, Victoria’s early work experience has given her unique and powerful insight into the multifaceted world of the dog industry. Regardless of your pet’s background, Victoria can help you enhance your understanding of your pet, develop your relationship, and achieve your goals.
Her educational background includes graphic design, political science, and German language as well as a brief foray into Veterinary Medicine (Western). In addition to her experience with pet stores, commercial kennels, large scale breeding operations, and animal shelters and rescues, Victoria has acquired an impressive set of credentials. These include Certified Top Tier K9 Pet and Working Dog trainer, AKC Certified Evaluator & Instructor, The GO TEAM Therapy Dogs, Inc. – Southeastern Wyoming Coordinator, Certified Canine Athlete Specialist, Certified Holistic Canine Nutritionist, Certified SMS Trainer, and ongoing education with some of the most prestigious competitive trainers in North America.

Victoria is also deeply knowledgeable in the canine application of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Homeopathy, and Ayurvedic principles.
When she’s not helping other people achieve their goals with their own dogs, Victoria can most often be found working and playing with her own German Wirehaired pointers, two Belgian Malinois crosses (who she speaks to in French and German, of course). She also enjoys swimming, biking, hiking, knitting and playing the piano or guitar.
Victoria seeks to make a difference in the lives of people and contribute to a healthier, happier community by educating and helping dog owners understand and have more fulfilling relationships with their canine companions. Whether you are looking to properly socialize a new puppy, work on basic manners and obedience in a newly adopted dog, enjoy a sport with your active companion, or pursue advanced search and rescue, tracking, or protection training for your working dog, Victoria can help.
