More about Wendy



Wendy began as an assistant instructor with Kaye Ames in 1991 and eventually was hired by Kaye as a full-time trainer/instructor and behavior counselor as well as Dog Daycare manager for Kaye Ames Canine Behavioral Center.


After the birth of her first child, training became a part-time job and motherhood a full-time job. During those years she continued teaching obedience classes and behavioral sessions on a part-time basis as well as joining up on the show circuit with professional handler Tony Moscato who taught her the in's and out's of the dog show game.


In 2000 Wendy, along with two other partners, opened Lancaster County's largest indoor dog training school offering pet classes, competition classes, behavior counseling, doggy daycare, and a variety of other dog related activities and events.


Four years later, Wendy took a temporary leave of absence from the dog world but she didn't stay out of the scene for long. Around 2006 Wendy again teamed up with Kaye Ames as an associate instructor at Kaye Ames School for Dogs. In 2009, Wendy was given the opportunity to acquire the business and Dog Sense Learning Center began.


Through the years, Wendy has worked with and trained a variety of dogs from mixed breeds, to Doberman Pinschers, Border Collies,and Shetland Sheepdogs, and many others.


She has put championships on several Border Collies and Doberman Pinschers. In cooperation with Tony, she helped guide a Bernese Mt Dog to a top ten ranking. She also had the pleasure of putting a CD on one of the top German Wire haired Pointers.
