about the trainer
Taylor’s lifelong dedication to animals, combined with her passion for teaching, has led to the creation of Integrated Canine LLC.
With over 16 years of experience training a variety of animals, including horses and dogs, Taylor (known as Tay to most) strives for an ever increasing understanding of animal behavior and psychology and how to best pass that knowledge on to her clients.
A graduate of the CATCH Canine Trainers Academy, Tay combines her education in ethical, science based training with her background in natural animal wellness practices as a large animal vet tech, to create a holistic approach to dog training and behavior management. Tay understands the value of obedience training, proper management, healthy diet, and ample exercise in creating a well balanced dog.
With encouragement, guidance, and support for her human students, and a positive learning environment for their dogs, she ensures that everyone enjoys the process of putting the pieces together.
“The capacity for love that makes dogs such rewarding companions has a flip-side: They find it difficult to cope without us. Since we humans programmed this vulnerability, it's our responsibility to ensure that our dogs do not suffer as a result.” – John Bradshaw
