As the Lead Trainer at Train the Bay, Nancy spent the last three decades dedicated to training work, to developing the program, and to helping Bay Area dogs and their families. In addition to the hundreds of students she teaches every year, she is the voice behind Berkeley Humane’s free Behavior Advice Hotline, and she evaluates and supports the training of shelter dogs at Berkeley Humane.
Growing up in Texas, her first training experience was with horses. Her love for animals and for training later led her to dogs and cats. She immersed herself in the Positive Reinforcement movement in the 1980’s, and has never looked back.
Nancy has participated and competed in dog sports over the years, including Agility and Rally. She currently has a dog working towards a tracking championship, and has titled several dogs in competition scent work. She has achieved the status of AKC Scent work Judge.
