Owner & Trainer
Victoria is an experienced dog trainer with a life long passion in working with animals. She firmly believes in positive reinforcement training methods and scientifically proven marker training techniques. She created Positively Pups to make it her life working with animals and helping families get the dream dog they've wanted thru using these methods that get results.
"I enjoy showing how effective it can be to maintain training positively, keeping a balanced and attentive dog at the same time in a realistic way that my clients can apply themselves day to day. Helping clients achieve the companion animal they imagined is one of the best parts of my job."
Victoria has always had a natural draw to animals of all kinds- large and small! Born and raised in Texas, she had a great opportunity to see and experience a variety of animals and loved working with them all. Having a strong background in horses & the equine community, she learned how to communicate gently and effectively from the beginning with a respect for the animals she worked with & loved.
Thru her horse years ago she found a path into professional dog training. She excelled very quickly alongside professional trainers as she learned the techniques of marker training and in general canine ethology, and applying them in real life situations with many different dogs & clients.
She is a natural people-person, optimistic and outgoing. It shows through her talent to communicate with both the human students and their canine counterparts cohesively.
She firmly believes that she’d rather say “yes” once instead of “no” a hundred times, and it shows through the success of her training and appreciation of her clients.
She’s looking forward to meeting you & your canine soon!
