                                  ABOUT THERESE

Therese' Dog Training Story


Therese has been training dogs professionally since 2000. Prior to opening Dogs Unlimited in 2007, she was an animal actor trainer and wildlife rehabilitator.

She is a professional member of the International Association of Canine Professionals, and an evaluator for the American Kennel Club Star Puppy, Canine Good Citizen and Canine Good Citizen Advanced tests.

Our Philosophy

Therese believes that accountability from the human along with a calm energy is the key to receiving good behaviors from your dog.

Using food, treats, toys, and praise to encourage good behavior, along with constant repetition and then adding distractions and distance we will teach our dogs to be accountable for their good choices. The great thing about this approach – it works!

Dogs Unlimited

Committed to providing the most effective solutions to her clients’ dog training needs, Dogs Unlimited is well respected in the community and is referred by veterinarians and dog-related businesses.  As an experienced teacher, Therese can guide you and your dog from puppy class through advanced obedience, trick classes, and therapy dog training.

Therese and Her Dogs

When not helping clients reach their goals with their canine companions, Therese enjoys teaming with her registered therapy dogs volunteering to visit with hospital patients and nursing homes. Therese worked with hospital administrators at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center to start a dog therapy program in 2007. The program flourished with the help of her beloved therapy dog, Spencer.

Currently three dogs share their lives with Therese and her husband. “Nikita” the Doberman, “Wyatt” the Bluetick Coonhound, and the always entertaining terrier mix “Little Man”.
