First came my passion for caring for animals. As a child I loved & cared for our various farm animals, dogs, cats, sheep, chickens and cows. This extended to caring for neighbors animals as well.
As an adult I became more focused and involved with dogs. While taking my lovable dog Hunter to obedience class, I found I enjoyed working with dogs. That soon lead to apprenticing with a dog trainer -- then training dogs on my own. I have worked at a doggy daycare and been involved with therapy dogs.
This involvement in so many areas has evolved into a broad spectrum of knowledge in dealing with animals.
I am pet first aid certified - Giving back to the community is important to me. I volunteer at the Idaho Humane Society.
