Meet Your Trainer
Doggy Decorum was created and founded by professional dog trainer Andrea Singer.
My love for dog training started years ago volunteering at various adoption shelters walking dogs and socializing with cats, as well as fostering dogs in my home. After witnessing so many dogs being returned to shelters for a simple lack of obedience skills, I began my studies to become a dog trainer in Brooklyn, NY. I read all the books written by the best positive reinforcement trainers and attained hands on experience shadowing several well known trainers in NYC. I was determined to help dogs stay in their furever homes. As I am a life long pet owner, animal lover and advocate, this step into the pet care industry was a dream come true and natural fit with my personality.
Educating dog owners to communicate effectively with their beloved furry friends is the most rewarding career. It is truly my passion to teach dog owners about their dog’s natural instincts and behaviors, creating strong bonds between human and canine. Ultimately, giving them the tools to create a happy, healthy and rewarding relationship suited for their lifestyles.
As I grow in my career, I hope to help as many pet parents as possible. With that, I have begun a new endeavor into the pet food industry. I am I learning about fresh food nutrition and raw feeding to provide my clients with nutrition guidelines that will help their dogs be healthy and thrive throughout their lives.
I currently live in Virginia Beach with Freddy, a schnauzer mix, and Flash, a chiweenie.
I am available to pet parents living in VB, Norfolk and most of Chesapeake.
