My career has been as an IT professional. But i’ve always had a passion for animals. With my own dogs i’ve always strived to give them the guidance in being great pets. I’ve also fostered dogs too for brief periods of time for one of the local rescue groups

A few months prior to the pandemic I lost my job. I had her about the Guide Dog foundation and always thought i’d be great at taking a puppy a few months old and raising it to be a service dog. For almost a year now the puppy has been with me. During this time i’ve learned a lot in training techniques and he has made remarkable progress

Though I was a software developer for many years and enjoyed the technical aspects I applied for this job because dog training as a profession is something i want to pursue.
