Then they spend the day with their favorite teachers.

Meet Maddie

Puppy Teaching Assistant

It’s hard to pick just one title for Maddie! She is our lead puppy teaching assistant for our day school and sleepaway camp students.
She also assists with our social media presence, helps with administrative duties
and is working towards her dog trainer certification.

Maddie is originally from Connecticut where she grew up on a farm with all types of critters. In high school, she enrolled in an agricultural program, 4H and assisted with wildlife rehabilitation. It was during this time that she realized her passion for working with animals of all kinds and how important human-animal relationships are for successful training. 

For the last 14 years, Maddie was a successful horse trainer and traveled all over the East Coast of the country training and competing with horses in show jumping. During that time, Maddie often found herself drawn to horses with behavioral challenges and enjoyed helping them regain confidence and trust in people.
Maddie prides herself on using gentle training methods and a holistic approach to horse behavior that takes into account the physical abilities and biomechanics of the horse. 

In spring of 2022, Maddie joined the Goldstar Puppy Academy team
to start using her training and behavioral knowledge to work with dogs. While the species specific behaviors may differ, the same learning theory applies! Maddie is a natural and all the pups love her patient and calm demeanor.
She is truly an asset to our team!
