Hi, I’m Andrea.

I am the human behind Best Life Dog Training.  

I have been in the dog training industry since 2018 and I focus solely on dogs with reactive, hyperactive, and/or impulsive behaviors.  I got my start in dog training as a second career.  

And when the pandemic hit, like may of you, I added a new dog to our family.  Rosie was the first reactive dog I had lived with.  She was extremely leash reactive, noise reactive, sensitive to environment changes, frustrations around barriers, and overall, impulsive and reactive.  True story, the first day we brought her home, she jumped high enough to nip me on the back of my head while I was standing up.  

Being the researcher (and dog trainer) I am, I dove in to how to best help Rosie, and preserve mine and my husband’s patience and sanity.  

Long story short, working with reactive dogs became my passion.  These dogs are misunderstood and need the help of a loving, patience, empathetic guardian to help them thrive.  While it can be challenging at times, the bond you build with your reactive dog will be like no other .  

As many dog trainers will tell you, I have grown up with dogs my entire life.  I quite literally cannot think of a time from the moment I was born to present day where there has not been a dog in my life.  I truly love dogs.  

However, I also respect dogs.  Even though I have “lifelong” experience, I pride myself on my commitment to continuing education to best serve and help guardians and their reactive dogs.  I am  CPDT-KA (Certified Professional Dog Trainer-Knowledge Assessed) certified by the CCPDT.  I am also a proud member of the Pet Professional Guild (PPG) and the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants (IAABC), two organizations that uphold their members to the highest standard when working with animals and their guardians.
