Tina Flores is a certified professional dog trainer (CPDT-KA), a Karen Pryor Academy Certified Training Partner, Certified Separation Anxiety Trainer, and owner of Doggy Einsteins Training. She also holds a Bachelor's in Science degree from the University of California San Diego.
Tina specializes in working with dogs who suffer from separation anxiety and helping pet guardians and their dogs with other behavior issues through the use of force-free training methods grounded in science. Her passion for helping pet guardians learn to effectively communicate with their dogs stems from her experience and love of her own (recovered) separation anxiety dog, Chile.
Tina also coaches families with newly adopted puppies or adult dogs on how to successfully integrate them into their households and offers adoption counseling prior to choosing a new family member. She has contributed to articles published in Modern Dog Magazine ,Whole Dog Journal, and PetMD. She also presents educational seminars to pet parents about separation anxiety through the San Diego Humane Society.
She continues to expand her knowledge of science‐based, positive training methods by attending seminars, workshops, conferences and reading and researching whenever possible.
In her spare time Tina loves to teach 17 year old Chile fun behaviors (disproving the old dogs/new tricks theory) and attending K9 Nosework and agility classes with her shepherd mix, Kona. She also enjoys hiking, amateur photography, traveling and wine tasting.
