Chris started training dogs in 2000, when her spunky Brittany did over $3,000 in damages to her home in 3 months. Since then, she has become one of the top trainers in Georgia, and competes in agility, frisbee, and dock diving. She is a member of the Purina Incredible Dog Team, and travels the nation with her dog crew to help educate and entertain audiences at balloon festivals, state fairs, animal expos, charity organizations, and has even traveled to South America to do PIDT shows. In August of '09, she appeared on David Letterman to help showcase dock diving for the Purina Incredible Dog Challenge, and in May 2010 the Ranch was featured in an article that made the front page of The Wall Street Journal. Chris’ philosophy on training emphasizes that every dog deserves the opportunity to become their best by combining her behavioral knowledge with obedience and manners training. This philosophy is carried throughout all of the training that occurs at the Ranch – whether in a group class on the dock or a private in-home lesson – we help your dog “be all that they can be”.
