I am Lynn Brezina, I am a certified professional dog trainer. I am the owner and operator of CompanionAbility LLC. I teach obedience and behavior modification to pet dogs and their human companions. I also consult with the human companions about canine behavior problems.
I started working with dogs in 1972, when I began showing Afghan hounds. I ended my showing career in the early ’90s, with English springer spaniels. I expanding my activities with the springers to tracking, hunting and obedience.
It was in the early ’90s, however, that I discovered I had much more fun working with other people and their dogs than I had taking my dogs to dog shows. That is where my passions truly lie.
For reasons somewhat mysterious to me, a border collie worked his way into my life. I became hooked. I took him to herd sheep. I became hooked. I got another border collie. I spent more time with sheep. I got another border collie. I spent more time with sheep. Sadly, at the end of the day I have no sheep, nor a place to put sheep, so we stopped that. The border collies are just pets and part time dog trainer’s assistants, but they seem happy with that.
I have had my share of problems with dogs over the years. As a result, I feel your pain and can commiserate with you.
I live with my husband, daughter, 2 border collies and two cats.
If you have questions, problems, or just want to share a love story with me, I would love to hear from you.
