About The Trainers

Cynthia Nunes CDTK FDM
Founder & Lead Trainer
Trainer Cindy has been working with dogs in some capacity for 12 years. She has experience as a dog bather, groomer apprentice and daycare attendant before finding her calling as a dog trainer. Trainer Cindy enjoys working with puppies and young dogs, but secretly loves the "stubborn" dogs.
After receiving hands on experience from a great mentor, Cindy decided to take Catch Canine Trainers Academy's Master Course, becoming officially "certified" in 2020. Cindy continues to build her knowledge base by taking new courses and seminars.
When not working with other families, Trainer Cindy enjoys spending time with her daughter, husband and (currently)one cat & two German Shepherds. If you're a dog show or sport enthusiast you may see Trainer Cindy at future events as she begins her journey into the fun world of dog sports!
Manager & Trainer
Trainer Dan has been working with dogs for about 5 years. He started out as a Daycare Attendant before moving into training. Trainer Dan enjoys working with high drive and/or intense dog breeds. He has a special talent for befriending difficult, and anxious dogs. His guilty pleasure is working with particularly sassy dogs. Trainer Dan is also highly skilled at reading dog body language and knows how to handle dog to dog situations, whether they are in groups or pairs.
Trainer Dan learned a lot from shadowing Trainer Cindy as well as Cindy's Mentor. While he has not taken any courses, Trainer Dan hopes to attend seminars with Cindy in the future.
When Dan is not in the field, he spends time working with his German Shepherds. He works both dogs with Off Leash Behaviors, which happens t be another passion of his. You may see Dan on hiking trails with both shepherds or in a field working his female on her agility, or playing long games of fetch. One of Trainer Dan's Aspirations is to be a Decoy Man in a full Bite Suit.
