Ayoka’s Experience & Credentials

There are many words to describe me: trainer, daycare operator, business owner, educator, dog lover…but it all comes down to the fact that I love dogs, I love learning and I especially love working with dog owners to achieve happy, healthy, well behaved dogs.

Ongoing education and learning is important to me. As a part of my commitment to my business, my profession and my clients, I have posted my dog related certifications, memberships, education and learning experiences. When available, I have included links to scanned copies of certificates and membership confirmations.
