It’s been over a decade since I realized just how much canines can change how people feel and interact. My interest was sparked with the desire to have a therapy dog. As time went on, I became more and more curious on how to go about the programs to have a dog certified, and I eventually decided I wanted to understand how dogs think, how they learn, and the different ways they interact with people. I am currently learning through CATCH Academy while being a fulltime nurse. I hope to do nursing part time and shift my main focus and occupation to dog training.
