My family moved to the PNW in 2019 and have been in love with it ever since! In my free time I like to hike or just spend a cozy day at home with my husband, daughter and dog, Holly.

Pawsitive Living was started to offer animals and their guardians a resource for science-based force-free training methods for behavior modification, cooperative care, changing family dynamics and basic skills for puppies through senior dogs. At Pawsitive Living, we want to foster a mutual understanding between animals and their humans to create a positive learning environment where everyone can thrive.
