Board and Train Instructor | Private Lesson Instructor | Group Class Instructor
Angelina started her career with dogs over 20 years ago working as a Veterinary Nurse/Technician at various clinics and vet hospitals. During that time she saw a need for dogs and their humans to have a better level of understanding and communication with her. Her passion for helping dogs and their people make changes to their lives using positive training and behavior modification grew from that experience.
Angelina’s training journey started with a Rottweiler named Diva. Together they attended classes at a training facility, Kromerhaus Kennels, owned by a police officer, Randy Kromer who imported and trained police dogs for local and national police authorities as well as ran a Schutzhund club. Training within the sport became her passion and she successfully completed the K9 Training and Kennel Management Certification Program through Kromerhaus Kennels. She has since completed and achieved various training titles/certifications within various organizations including a BH in Schutzhund, Canine Good Citizen- American Kennel Club, Canine Conditioning Coach- Do More with Your Dog and Certified Professional Dog Trainer (CPDT-KA).
Angelina has been a part of the Best Paw Forward team part time for years but was thrilled to accept a larger role in our Board and Train program in 2021 along with conducting private lessons and group classes at our Perkasie facility.
Angelina shares her home with a very tolerant husband, energetic son and 4 dogs! One rescue GSD/Malamute mix, a rescue GSD from Lancaster area and 2 Belgian Malinois (one from rescue- Lancaster area as well). If she isn’t with her family and friends she is nerding out on all things dogs attending continuing education seminars and events.
