Hey y'all!

So Like you I was tired of not meeting a trainer that truly wanted to educate me so I can feel confident about training my dog at home. I wanted to offer clients a phone line where there wasn't a limit on questions they could ask or have someone to help them if they need more assistance. 

Soo I bit the bullet packed my things and went to Starmark Academy in Hutto, Tx. 

Best decision I have ever made!!

My Siberian Husky Luna was the first dog I delt with dog aggression, I thought it was the end of the world because that meant I could never have another dog part of my pack or be able to go anywhere with her. Little did I know its okay they don't like dogs but with that said she isn't allowed to react and or antagonize other dogs. 


I wasn't the smartest in school, college was hard for me but learning about canines, I mean everything to and between from; nutrients, first aid, nose work, agility, herding, and competition obedience. That was so easy for me I knew I was meant to be there I knew this was something I was so passionate about, when I graduated as a Canine Trainer and Behavioral Specialist I was so excited to offer all the hard work of hours of training dogs and getting the inside  scoop of how to manage a business and offer great quality to my clients. 

When you hire me as your forever trainer, you're not just getting someone who took a quick 2 day online class. You're getting someone who spent months even years of textbook education, classroom work and even hands on instructor knowledge. There isn't a day I don't continue my education there isn't a day I stop expanding my knowledge. You get what you pay for and if want someone who won't bandaid an issue an practices what they preach, Otsana is the trainer for you.
