About the Author

I have been fortunate to do what I wanted to do since I was a little girl. Work with animals. My path has taken me down the road of veterinarian assistant for domestic and exotic pets, wildlife rehabilitation, animal rescue with different SPCA's, dog training, grooming and now writing. There has always been one constant in this path we call life, I've always had at least one dog walking with me, following me or causing me to chase them. My life as a dog trainer started in the early nineteen eighties when I was asked to stay on as an apprentice after taking Quila, my shepherd cross through obedience classes. From there I started competing in obedience, conformation, agility and fly ball with Toshi, Kitt, Jake and Boo. After attaining an instructor's certification for dog obedience, I held a variety of pet obedience classes in different places I lived. My specialization became training dogs deemed un-trainable. Working in veterinary clinics kept me busy for ten years and eventually led me into pet grooming in the nineteen nineties. Combining my knowledge and skill as a dog trainer with my experience from veterinary clinics, I began to specialize in the dogs that were refused by other groomers. I love grooming dogs and cats, and still specialize in behavior dogs both in training and in grooming.
