I knew this was something I had to pursue to fulfill my mind, body and soul.

Dogs have always been my passion. Once I saw this opportunity to mix my love for dogs and help people along the way, I knew this was my calling. It’s not just work to me, it’s a life I love.

As a life-long dog lover who is passionate about improving relations between dogs and humans, opening the doors of Estill Dog Psychology was truly a dream come true. I am a dog behaviorist specializing in dog psychology, but that’s not where my work ends. Much of my success comes from also teaching humans what dog psychology is and why it’s so important. This is truly the foundation for healthier relationships and long-term bonds.

I was born and raised in North Fort Worth, not far from where Estill Dog Psychology is located today. My father worked with hunting dogs for most of his life, training bird-hunting dogs from when he was a boy. He passed on to me the importance of having a healthy relationship with animals and the crucial roles that animals and humans play in each other’s lives. Growing up, there was always a variety of animals in our home: fish, hamsters, lizards, turtles, birds, cats, rabbits, ferrets, and even homing pigeons. The one constant was that we always had dogs.

When I graduated high school, I left my parent’s house to play college baseball. After that, I moved on to a professional career in business operations, but I never felt fulfilled or passionate about what I was doing. When the opportunity came along to team up with Bevill Dog Behavior, I left the corporate world for the world I loved and was the head dog behaviorist there for many years.

“In dog behavior it’s not a race, it’s a journey. There is no finish line. Take your time, slow down and live in the moment—just like dogs do.”

We intentionally began Estill Dog Psychology as a small business, so we could offer the specialized attention required for effective relationship-building between dogs and humans. As our business has grown, that priority remains. Today we offer board and train, private lessons, public speaking, and yoga with dogs of all breeds, ages, and sizes.

The majority of our client base comes from word of mouth and repeat customers, which is something we are so grateful and proud about. Helping humans and dogs forge life-long bonds is what we are all about. To me, it’s much more than a business, it’s my life. I wake up every day excited to share my knowledge and passion with the world.
