About Us


It has been the greatest pleasure of my life to have been able to make dog training, specifically protection dog training, my life’s work.

My journey began over 20 years ago, when as a young teen, I saw an advertisement for Canine Protection International (CPI) in the DuPont Registry magazine. The ad showed two women with a stunning black and red German Shepherd protection dog. The ad captured the beauty and power of the dog as well as the elite and exclusive nature of owning such a well-trained dog. I never forgot that image. Fast forward to my decision to change careers, from working in the automotive industry to becoming part of the CPI training team in Massachusetts.

Learning CPI’s unique way of transferring performance to new owners was fascinating to me. My rapid development as a trainer helped me transfer this knowledge and experience to our clients. Over time, I became the lead CPI delivery trainer, as well as the go-to person for client follow-up and quarterly maintenance programs.

 Creating the advanced levels of performance that a CPI dog exhibits, such as impeccable manners, complete off-leash control, and providing the most advanced protection available has become my life’s passion. I enjoy working with our clients to help them understand and learn each dog’s specialized training. 



Fast forward to 2022 when a long-awaited opportunity presented itself: to move from employee to owner of Canine Protection International! My long awaited dream came true. 

As of 2023, Canine Protection International is now located in Dallas, Texas. We have made a seamless transition of our training, follow-up, scheduled maintenance training, and sales from the Massachusetts-based organization to the Dallas-based one. I am committed to bringing the highest level of training and customer service to your experience as a protection dog owner.
