Cindy knew as a young girl that she would work with animals. She had reptiles, horses, cats and, of course, many dogs!

She received a BOCES Certificate of Animal Science and her career began with positions at various pet stores, including three years at PetSmart where she was a groomer who quickly elevated to Floor Manager and Salon Manager.

Cindy started with Best Friends Dog Training over 10 years ago working in the kennels. After her 1 ½ year apprenticeship she was graduated to trainer. Her exuberant personality helped create her specialty of not only training the dogs, but working with our human clients who need to build up enough confidence in themselves to become great dog owners.

She has 3 dogs of her own, Jax who has done obedience, agility and trick training and 2 Belgian Malinois, Stone and Dublin who are training to compete in Personal Protection Sports. Cindy and her dogs have also been featured on several TV shows like The Chew and several TV commercials. They have also been competing in PSA and has already earned certificates for obedience and protection competition.
