Upon receiving a medical retirement from the US Navy in 2014, my family moved from my San Diego duty station to Georgetown, Texas.
I received hands-on training to train service dogs and an internship with the San Diego US Marshal K9 before leaving the area to begin a 501(C)(3) Hero's Paws training service and therapy dogs for disabled veterans. I earned my diploma in CBST (Canine Behavior Science and Technology) from Companion Animal Science Institute, I completed the 12-week Starmark Canine Training and Behaviorist program, along with over 700 supervised hours in dog training with various problems presented by clients and over 1,000 education hours.
In 2016 we began our breeding program and the beginning stages of the Consciousness Theory began. A mixture of Eastern psychology work combined with the understanding of how a dog mentally develops, and how to stimulate the creation of neuro-connections in the brain during peak developmental periods, it just made sense how to piece this together. From 2016-2020 we've been playing trial and error with the program to where we are now seeing optimal results as determined from the feedback of families. In Jan 2019, my youngest child was born. I began implementing the same techniques I had been using on my puppies with my son. The results have been promising and we are taking the research further as we enter into 2023!!!
