Meet Our Trainer

Nina started working as a Veterinary Technician in 2004. In 2016, she was asked what topic she wanted to learn more about. Behavioral struggles she had overcome with her own dogs influenced her decision to specialize on behavioral training. She enrolled in and completed positive reinforcement classes earning her trainer certification. Nina is an Arizona native, who enjoys walking around the valley's parks with her dog, eating out, cooking, and craft projects. She has 3 pets, 2 cats named Arwen and Lestat and an active shepherd mix named She-Ra Banana.
