about me

Lydia with Dog

Me and my girl Ruby Mae! She started it all with “seek and rescue” for my toys left in the yard.

My name is Lydia Cox, I am an 18 year old dog trainer with aspirations of becoming a professional K9 handler/trainer! I have always had a fascination with the inner workings of behavior. My amazement of the amount of relief an animal can bring to a person has made me want to try and make every moment with these gifts as wonderful as possible…

I own and train a Malinois for personal protection work, while I am unlicensed at the moment I plan to get my certifications as soon as possible!

I have been training and studying animals, cats included, since I was old enough to talk. At the ripe age of ten I had already taught my cat to play hide n’ seek and both of our collie mutts to play “seek and rescue” meaning I would hide things and make them find them!

I focus on the individual breed and traits of each dog to specialize every training program to get the best sustainable results. This is called CHOICE TRAINING. Choice training is using the given traits a dog already has and will never lose based on the years of genetics put into the breed and sculpting it into a desirable characteristic for each household.
