Danielle has been with Doggy Day Out since April 2003, and is also our kennel manager. Danielle turned her hobby of dog training into a full-time career in the summer of 2006. In 2016 Danielle recently took another step in her training career by successfully completing the Karen Pryor Academy training program and becoming a Certified Training Partner. She also has certifications in Advanced Obedience, Behavior Modification, Scent Detection, Tracking, Retrieval, Utility, and Puppy Development.

Danielle is also an approved evaluator for the Canine Good Citizen (CGC) and S.T.A.R. puppy programs offered through the AKC.  

Danielle trained her first dog, a Bull Mastiff mix, when she was 12 years old and the joy of teaching dogs has been with her ever since. Danielle lives and trains with multiple dogs with a focus on the dog sport of flyball.  She is a member of the RUSH! Flyball club based in Austin and several of her dogs have titled in the sport. Danielle’s heart dog is Liberty-Belle, a 10 year old Jack Russell Terrier. She is everyone's best friend regardless of whether in competition or working the booth at one of the many pet fairs she attends throughout the year. Liberty has earned her CGC, CD, Novice Rally (RN) and Advanced Rally (RA) titles. She has also earned her ONYX title in flyball, and Novice DockDogs title. In addition, Liberty also attends lure coursing, and go-to-ground competitions.  Liberty has appeared in various print and TV spots; this is one tireless dog! Danielle’s furry family is rounded out with Makena, Mika, Blurr, Flirt, Volt and long-term foster dog Hoss.  Her two Bengal cats Banzai and Shenzi maintain order around the house.

Danielle gives back to the dog community as a foster home for Border Collie Rescue of Texas, from whom she also adopted 2 of her “fur-kids”. She is also an agent and foster for Russel Rescue Inc.  In addition she is a puppy raiser for the Military Working Dog (MWD) program at Lackland Air Force Base.  Three of the dogs she has raised are currently on active duty.  Danielle has also participated 3 times in the Extreme Mutt Makeover event as 1 of only 10 trainers in Texas selected to train a shelter dog in 6 weeks to increase their chances of adoption.  All 3 dogs she trained were adopted into loving homes and are enjoying their new lease on life.
