For as long as I can remember, dogs have been an integral part of my life. While most kids would crawl into bed with mom and dad when they couldn’t sleep, my parents typically found me curled up in the dog bed cuddling one of our family dogs. Whenever I had a rough day at school or had nobody to play with, I could always rely on them to be there for me. I perceived that dogs wanted nothing more than to make us happy but often were neglected in areas that made them happy. Growing up, I realized that the least I could do was give the same love and attention to our fur friends that they always gave to me.
This ideology led me to become interested in training so I could provide the tools necessary to build an even more fulfilling friendship between dogs and their owners. All the while, I get to build up the dog’s confidence, abilities, and even give them an outlet for their biting as a decoy, which is fun for me too! All around, I now love what I do and wouldn’t change a thing.
