My name is Wendy Lott. We just bought our farm in 2020. I named our farm after my late German Shepherd Wito. I have had a love for dogs and horses my entire life. I had dogs and horses growing up as a kid. I am a retired law enforcement officer. During my time in Law Enforcement, I spent 4 years in the K-9 Unit handling a single purpose explosive ordinance detection K-9 named Nemo. I completed a 12 week K-9 Class through Metro Transit Police K-9. During my  time in the K-9 unit I went to school and got my Train the trainer certification through Tarheel K-9 Academy in 2007. I assisted with training and retraining other canines for my department and other agencies during my time in the K-9 unit. After my dog was retired from the agency I continued to work him for a private security company for 5 more years. I was a member of the United States Police Canine Association and The North American Police Work Dog Association. During this time I also started working and learning about a German Dog Sport called Schutzhund. This sport consists of tracking, obedience and protection training. I love training puppies and providing a solid foundation for them to transition into their new homes with their forever families. I have been training puppies since November 2019.  Consistency is key when it comes to training any puppy or dog.  I welcome referrals from breeders, other trainers and previous clients.   I am currently a member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers) and regularly complete continuing education.  I am LIMA certified. I am also a member of the International Association of Canine Professionals (IACP). All dogs, puppies and horses are different. One thing may work for one animal but may not work for another. I always keep an open mind when it comes to training. I like to think outside of the box.  I am also a certified instructor through the Maryland Police Training Commission.

I started riding horses when I was a child. I have loved horses for as long as I can remember. I would read every book I could just to learn as much as I could about horses. As an adult I got involved in rescuing unwanted horses and volunteered at a couple local horse rescues. After I retired from law enforcement I worked at Wolf Creek Equine Hospital as a Vet technician for approximately 5 years prior to buying my dream farm. I learned a lot about horses during this time. I currently own 5 horses and 1 donkey. I prefer to ride Western but I often end up in my English saddle when I have time to ride. I enjoy trail riding and just hanging out in the barn. Barn Therapy and Puppy Therapy is the best!
