Victoria is the head trainer at Dream Dogz. She has been training in Florida since she moved here in 2005 with her family and her owner/trained service dog Boo.
Victoria started as a food-based trainer, but realized the limitations and kept searching for a better way to serve her clients. After studying and combining many styles of training, she has developed her very own, unique style that our clients find easy to understand.
Victoria quickly became the areas go-to trainer for everything from puppies to pet dogs to service dogs to the hardest behavior issues. While she enjoys working with pet dogs and behavior issues, her passion is service dog training, and seeing the change in lives because of a well-trained service dog. Plus, she gets to take the service dogs and service dogs in training to Disney World. After all, what is better than training dogs in the happiest - and most magical - place on earth?
