Free To Be Dog Training was created by a group of passionate animal lovers with a unique connection to their local community. This group of dog-lovers saw a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to combine their strengths and values from military service with their passion for teaching dogs and their people through incorporating a nonprofit specifically dedicated to their local dog-loving community.

Credentials

Tiff began her training journey with dogs after experiencing extreme behavioral challenges with her heart dog, a Vizsla named Arlo.

She has experience with cross country and out of country moves with dogs as an US Army veteran and military spouse herself. She is passionate about treating humans and animals with kindness. When Tiffany isn't training dogs she enjoys hiking with her dogs, reading about dogs, working out, and spending time with her husband and dogs at the beach. Tiffany's newest addition will be seen throughout the website and works with her at many of her Behavior assessment sessions. The Wire Haired Griffon mix is an Underdog named Winston, a 2. yr old goofball.
