I have been a long-time lover of all things animals.  When I was a child, whenever I was asked "What do you want to be when you grow up?" I always answered that I wanted to be a dog trainer. 

Life happened, and I have been in everything from radio to retail but the one thing that has always remained consistent has been my desire to work with animals.  I have always managed to have them in my life as my own pets and have spent the past several years running my own pet-sitting and dog-walking company.  I have enjoyed every second and it only made me want to help my clients even more.  I've seen them struggle with their dog's behavior whether it be pulling on the leash, chasing squirrels, or causing mayhem in the house or around the neighborhood.  I wanted to do more, help more, and so in 2020 I revisited my childhood desire to be a dog trainer and became a certified Pro Dog Trainer through Absolute Dogs.

Teddy is a 13-year old Black Labrador who loves food, snuggles, and games.  He's happy to report that games have turned him into a confident canine and a "young" senior with the help of his A-OK9 supplements.
