Morgan is a Professional Dog Trainer of 17 years & lifetime appreciator of cats with a BS in Psychology. While primarily specializing in Dog Behavior Consulting as a CBCC-KA working with anxious dogs, the ‘cat distribution system’ delivered Jasper as a feral kitten & Morgan’s interest in feline behavior was renewed. Three years ago, Morgan began teaching buttons to her herding dogs as well as Jasper, then blind & chronically ill. Morgan created a custom ‘kitty-braille’ system of textures to assist  Jasper’s soundboard navigation, & is excited to help you unlock your own unique learner’s potential!
