Dae is the owner and trainer of Dog-Abilities, a professional dog training and walking business, servicing the Northern KY and Cincinnati areas. Dog-Abilities offers private training, behavioral consults, group classes, board and trains, and dog walking services. We work with dogs of all ages, sizes, and breeds, as well as a variety of behavioral problems. These include but are not limited to general house manners/basic obedience, fear and phobia issues, anxiety, and aggression. We strive to guide and educate owners to gain confidence in helping their dogs through the use of reward based training and scientific principles of canine learning theory.
Dae’s dog training career began 17 years ago when she decided to train her first puppy, a Boxer. Together, they learned the power of clicker training and eventually earned a CGC and therapy dog title.
Since that time, Dae became increasingly interested in animal behavior, taking college classes and reading various books and articles on the subject. After graduating from the University of Kentucky with a major in psychology, she decided to pursue both her passions for psychology and animal training. This led her to working in boarding, training, and daycare facilities, where she gained both observational skills and hands-on experience with many different dogs.
She has also assisted with many group training classes and board and trains for basic obedience and service dog work.
