In her early years, Candace was required to do a science experiment for school. She decided to research the effects of Pavlov’s Dog and using treats vs. praise. She used her brand new golden retriever puppy, Abigail, teaching many different behaviors. The experiment went to regionals where it won honorable mention. Candace always said it went so far and won because Abby was so cute. Her interest in dog training and dog care grew from there.
Candace has an extensive background in customer service and event management. In the fall of the event industry, due to COVID, Candace decided it was the perfect time to follow her passion with dog training. She is now working for ADA as an assistant trainer. She loves to watch puppies and their owners learn from class to class and grow their relationship with one another.
Candace is working to complete her CATCH Dog Training Academy Master’s Program Certificate. She has two doodles of her own, Gambit (5 year old Goldendoodle) and Kailua (2 year old Berenedoodle). They love to go on adventures outside and see their friends and family! Candace enjoys going to new restaurants, movies, and football!
