Owner and Trainer
She has loved dogs for as long as she could remember. Donna adopted her first Doberman in 1999 and began driving on weekends from MA to Sandown, NH to volunteer for Doberman Rescue Unlimited so she could help other less fortunate dogs. She wore many hats as she learned about dog training from the shelter’s staff trainers. She took some of the worst cases into her own home to foster and rehabilitate.
Motivated to learn more about K-9 training, she traveled to Carbondale, IL in 2005 to train with Behesha Doan of Extreme K-9. She became certified in dog training, with a focus in Remote Collar Training. Although there is no requirement in MA to be certified as a dog trainer, she felt it was important to do so.
As a Dog Trainer, she uses multiple techniques to achieve obedience goals. She is a results based trainer that uses positive based training techniques. Her passion today is to help young puppies get a jump start on successful happy life, and also enjoys working with the dogs she calls “cowboys” and “cowgirls,” the wild and crazy ones. She loves to take that energy and put it into nice manners training. Also, really teaching pet owners how to communicate effectively with there dogs is critical in her teachings. Overall, she works with puppies to mature dogs teaching basic to advanced and off leash obedience. Training is 95% positive reinforcement. The dog needs to enjoy training or you can’t get very far in your results
Donna has been Certified in CPR, First Aid & Care For Your Pets by PetTech.

She has always been an animal lover and has kept horses, dogs, cats, a rabbit and a guinea pig. She was one of those kids who always preferred the company of animals and even today believes that nothing compared to the unconditional love of a dog. Ever since she moved to the US she has been pining for her main man, a handsome Black Lab / Boxer cross called Harry, who loves to climb trees and join her on her yoga mat, but who sadly had to stay at home in Ireland.
In the absence of her number one hound, she is so happy to have some daily fluff back in her life. She likes to run, so don’t be surprised if your dog gets a little extra exercise! She has a degree in Irish and Translation, and since arriving in MA she has begun teaching Irish in the Irish Cultural Center in Canton, and the Irish International Immigrant Center.
