As a child, the neighborhood dogs used to wait for me at the bus stop!
Their doggie parents would call my mother looking for them when they weren't at home by dark, knowing they were probably in my backyard playing...with me!
I have had dog in my life every day since I was a baby. I can't imagine my life without them. Right now I thoroughly enjoy the company of my crazy cocker spaniel, Sophie, and my laid back cat, Pipsie. I love being around animals and truly believe they hold the key to our souls. I could happily live all of my days playing and rolling around in the grass with my dog and enjoying the sound of my cat's purr.
I also owned a small dog treat company in Austin, and for 10 years sold online, to local stores, and at farmers markets. In 2014, I closed up shop to focus on spending more one on one time with animals, and I am so happy I did!
In addition to having cared for my own pets all of my life, I am a graduate of Animal Behavior College, and also completed a dog training internship with Lee Mannix at the Mannix Center for Canine Behavior here in Austin, Texas.
