Brooklyn Binkley

As a kid, Brooklyn grew up with all sorts of animals in her backyard and in her home, where she has cared for them since as far back as she can remember. From an early age, she knew that working with animals was going to be her greatest passion and her greatest adventure.

After working as a Force & Fear Free Animal Trainer and Behaviorist for many years (and then packing in 2 years of community college), Brooklyn made the choice to expand on her skills, and applied, attended, and received her Bachelor of Science degree in Pre-Vet Animal Science at UC Davis with a specialization in Animal Behavior in 2018. However, while California is a beautiful state to live in, she found herself missing her friends and family – and so she packed up and headed back home to her North Carolina mountain home near Asheville in early 2020 (where we were fortunate enough to meet and recruit Brooklyn to our team of Trainers)!

Brooklyn believes that through understanding animals and why they react in certain ways, their motivations, and learning how to shape their behaviors; we can increase communication and help dogs and their humans live their most Complete life – which is why she has devoted her life to gaining as much knowledge as possible! The well-being of any animal has always been a priority and a great passion of Brooklyn’s and she takes pride in knowing that when clients come to see her, they are going to get the absolute best training possible!

Brooklyn is an AKC CGC, S.T.A.R., & Trick Dog Evaluator, and is Certified in Pet First Aid & CPR

Fallon Houser

Fallon is the Founder of TCK9, and has always believed in “walking what you talk,” as well as leading by example. She’s a firm believer in education, whether it be for dogs or people, and has always believed there is an answer for most any question should you take the time to find it.

An animal lover from birth, Fallon spent her childhood bringing home strays, training and rehabilitating them, and competing on horseback in 3-Day Events, before later deciding to turn her attention towards animal welfare and rescue as a teenager after spending time volunteering with the local shelter.

That passion is what led her to start the longest-running Doberman Pinscher Rescue in the state of TN, Tennessee Doberman Rescue Plus (www.TDR.dog), and attain her MBA degree while running a rescue, working full time, getting married to the love of her life, and having a child. In the 10+ years since founding TDR+, Fallon has personally been hands-on in the rescue of thousands of dogs (and still counting), and has grown the organization from a fledgling group of fosters – to a large 501(c)3 rescue with volunteers and fosters throughout the southeast.

As a business owner and self-admitted dog nerd, Fallon owns and operates multiple dog training locations throughout the southeast, with the newest being The Complete K9, which is located in her hometown of Sweetwater, TN. While she’s extremely passionate about training and has years of professional experience in Obedience, K9 Detection & Scent Work, Aggression & Anxiety Management, and Service Dog Training (including Medical Alert and Bio-Dog Odor Training) – Fallon’s passion lies not only in helping dogs behaviorally, but also through Nutrition, Wellness, and Fitness in order to help each client achieve their goals in the most complete way possible. When not actively working with her trainers and clients, she also competes regularly in Scent Work trials and attends numerous continuing education seminars and classes yearly (because she believes there should never be a point where an instructor stops learning and growing).

Fallon is an AKC Evaluator, Certified Sport Detection Dog Trainer Level 2 through Ford K9, Certified Bio-Dog Trainer (Cancer and Medical Alert Detection) through the In-Situ Foundation, Certified Pet First Aid & CPR Instructor, Pet Nutrition Counselor, and member of the APDT (Association of Professional Dog Trainers), DPCA (Doberman Pinscher Club of America), DPCN (Doberman Pinscher Club of Nashville), UDC (United Doberman Club), and the NDTC (Nashville Dog Training Club).
