Morgan, Professional Pet Trainer

Morgan developed her love for training in 2009 when she began showing Lily, her Border Collie/Husky mix in Obedience and Agility competitions in her hometown of Bloomington, Indiana. Throughout her first year of training, Morgan realized just how deep the bond between human and dog can be. That is what inspired her to continue training. Morgan and Lily have won many awards and titles together, such as Reserve Grand Champion in 4-H Obedience, Class Champion in Agility, Community and Urban Canine Good Citizen, and multiple trick dog titles!

Upon moving to Virginia in 2013, Morgan began teaching group training classes. Here, she realized just how rewarding it is to assist others in reaching their training goals and to help them have a more enjoyable life with their pets. Additionally, Morgan adopted a young Beagle mix, Blake, in 2014. Blake instantly became her side-kick and training “demonstration dog.” He has the very important job of showing other dogs (and their humans!!) what a behavior should look like so people can visualize their goals. He is also a registered Therapy Dog and regularly visits hospitals and schools to bring joy into the world. Together, Blake and Morgan have earned all three CGC titles, Expert trick dog titles, and multiple first place scores in Rally and Obedience competitions.

Morgan loves to further her knowledge and is constantly reading up on pet training literature. All of her methods are force free, fear free, and backed by science. She can teach basic manners and obedience, competition prep, ticks, therapy dog prep, and so much more! She also specializes in behavioral “rehab” so your reactive dog can one day enjoy being around other pups as well.  

Her pups are, officially, Lilybadilly CGCA CGCU TKA ETD and Shake-N-Blake CGCA CGCU RN THDN TKA ETD. We can help your pets get credentials, too!
