Sonja's accomplishments with dogs and training credentials achieved during the last 25 years are unmatched. In 2014, Sonja retired from the FBI after 23 years of service as a Special Agent and opened Sonja's Dog Training. While serving with the FBI, Sonja completed thousands of hours of training under nationally recognized trainers, competed in the protection sports of Schutzhund, Mondioring, and French Ring, attained local and national level search dog certifications, completed 100's of field missions with her K9s for the FBI and others, and has trained and worked with 100's of dogs of all ages and types.

For approximately 10 years, while stationed in Los Angeles, Sonja deployed with her K9s for the FBI Evidence Response Team (ERT) and CARDA (California Rescue Dog Association) throughout California, the Western United States, Mexico, the Middle East, and to the Pentagon after 9/11. Sonja also teaches the dog sports of Nosework/Scentwork and is a UKC Nosework and AKC Scentwork Judge.
