Meet the Trainer

Toni Stoltz and Enzo

  

A little bit about me.... My husband and I live in the Lake Norman area.  We have three grown children, three adorable granddaughters and two precious grandsons who are the love of our lives! Our dog, Sweet Violet passed away in 2014 and Brady our wonderful cat in 2017, but they will always live in our hearts. We now share our home and our love with Enzo, our amazing sweet puppy. Our grown children also have animals, which of course adds so much fun and fur to our lives!
 

Growing up I was constantly "borrowing" all the neighbors’ puppies to play with! Snuggling with those puppies and smelling their sweet puppy breath did then and does now make me smile from ear to ear! For many years my goal has been to pursue a career working with animals. In 2000, when we introduced Violet, our sweet Boston Terrier into our home and our lives it quickly became clear to me that this is where my heart and my passion was. Each day Vi and I would work on different things--sit, stay, down, come, touch, leave it and many fun tricks! All of that on the job training has helped me with training Enzo to be a fabulous dog!
 

I earned my Dog Training certification through the Animal Behavior College (ABC) and my Canine Good Citizenship (CGC) Evaluator certification through the American Kennel Club (AKC). I am a full member of the Pet Professional Guild and certified through the American Red Cross in Pet CPR.  My internship was completed with my mentor Dee, a wonderful fellow trainer and friend.
 

Thank you for taking the time and interest in looking at my site and qualifications that I have to offer in working with you and your loving dog.
