Tom is the CEO of FetchMasters, an APDT Full Member and an Animal Behavior College certified dog trainer. He advocates positive reinforcement methods and draws from a rich background of experience working with everything from toy breeds to sporting and hound breeds.
He believes that the happiest dog is well-exercised, well-trained, gainfully employed and living with a knowledgeable owner. Tom also believes that the process of working diligently to understand and train a dog develops a unique bond between dog and owner, and he tries to guide all of his clients toward this fulfilling relationship.
Tom is proud to be a Denver, Colorado, business owner and is committed to providing state-of-the-art dog training, comprehensive owner education, and the highest level of customer service.
Tanya Cardwell is our Senior Dog Trainer and Behavior Consultant. She has achieved her CPDT-KA certification (Certified Pet Dog Trainer - Knowledge Assessed) and is a Professional Member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers.
Tanya supervises our more complex behavior modification cases and junior trainers to make sure FetchMasters' standards and effectiveness are prioritized.
Tanya's background traces back to Denver animal shelters where she worked with behaviorally challenged dogs. During that time she trained dogs who suffered serious behavior issues like aggression and separation anxiety, while mentoring other dog trainers on how to prepare these dogs behaviorally for the adoption floor.
Her approach to training is to keep things fun. If your dog is enjoying himself, most likely you are too, and training will progress faster. Tanya is expert in assessing a dog's unique learning style and custom-tailoring a training program specifically for that dog.
When not training dogs, you can find Tanya jogging dirt trails or playing pranks on her unsuspecting German shepherd.
