NOT JUST A DOG TRAINER

Brittany doesn't just train dogs, though.  She has a love for all animals and has worked with many different species, carrying an unwavering commitment to the well-being of creatures great and small. Her passion extends far beyond our canine companions, as evidenced by her rich experience with a diverse array of animals.   From the majestic elegance of horses to the gentle but sometimes stubborn nature of cows, the cleverness of rats, the independence of cats, and the hoppy charm of rabbits, Brittany has seamlessly applied her training expertise to create harmonious connections with these wonderful creatures and more.

Brittany's holistic philosophy transcends traditional dog training, embracing the unique qualities of each animal she encounters.  Whether guiding a horse through trust-building exercises or fostering positive behaviors in a group of sheep, her approach focuses on using the least force necessary, teaching alternative behaviors, and rewarding positive actions.  This philosophy is seamlessly woven into her interactions with every species she works with, creating a bond built on respect, understanding, and the holistic well-being of the entire animal.

Before diving into dog training, she spent two years living at a prominent horse rescue, working with neglected, abused, and unwanted horses.  Her compassionate touch mended physical and emotional wounds, laying the foundation for her commitment to holistic animal care.  Venturing into farm life, she cared for goats, sheep, chickens, ducks, quail, pigs, rabbits, and cows, showcasing her nuanced understanding of diverse species.

From the rolling hills of the horse rescue to the rhythms of farm life, Brittany's journey has always been intertwined with animals. Her childhood fascination with creatures foreshadowed her role as a holistic dog trainer, where her commitment to animal care and well-being creates a harmonious bridge between the various species she has nurtured and guided throughout her remarkable journey.  She began dog training as a hobby with family dogs as she grew, and then expanded to friends' dogs alongside her own personal dogs.  Her respect, understanding, and holistic perspective form the foundation of truly enriching experiences for all involved.

Brittany currently lives on a ranch in Nevada with her husband and their menagerie of animals.  Together they have four dogs, a cat, ten rabbits, ten chickens, five ducks, a goose, a horse, and two cows.  Brittany is a lover of all things outdoors, houseplants, and gardening.  She believes in sustainable agriculture and hopes to use what she's learned to help others grow their passions.

WHY HOLISITC?

The inspiration for the holistic approach was drawn from experiences with Brittany's Australian Shepherd, Poe. Diagnosed with kidney disease at the age of two, Poe's struggles and eventual passing at four years old were significant catalysts for change.  The loss of Poe spurred Brittany to investigate alternative care methods, specifically in diet and holistic practices, with the intention of sparing other pet parents the pain experienced with Poe.

Simultaneously, Brittany has navigated personal health challenges of her own—dealing with Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, Dysautonomia, and other issues.  Disenchanted with the limitations of conventional healthcare, she sought relief through holistic methods.  Brittany discovered a harmonious synergy between modern medicine and holistic practices that significantly improved her quality of life.

This personal journey fueled Brittany's passion for holistic dog training—a methodology that integrates both physical and emotional well-being, homeopathic remedies, naturopathic approaches, aromatherapy, and canine massage.
 

Prospective clients are invited to join Constellation Canine, where each dog is recognized as an individual, and the training methods reflect a commitment to their overall well-being. Together with Brittany, you can embark on a journey toward a balanced and harmonious relationship with your dog unlike any other.
