Karlie was amazing. We have used her multiple times now and couldn’t be happier! She kept us in the loop while we were gone, and went above and beyond! Thank you!!!Jan 7, 2018Verified

- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I completed Animal Behavior College's Basic Dog Obedience Trainer course in September 2015, and have been both a shelter volunteer and a volunteer mentor at the San Diego Humane society, dedicating 90 volunteer hours toward helping dogs in need become more adoptable. I have also been fostering dogs for various rescues since early 2012. Fostering has allowed me to care for and train a variety of dogs from a deaf bully mix to a few reactive dogs, and even a very shy dog. All of them blossomed under my care and inspired me to learn as much as possible so I can help them and be even more supportive towards the next dog I dedicate myself to helping.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?Animals have always intrigued me. From a young age, I was absolutely fascinated with the Iditarod. The main question I couldn't figure out was "How do the racers choose their lead dogs?" After seeing the movie "Balto" when I was 5 years old I understood the importance of that role. I couldn't, however, connect how someone in Alaska could have a dog that was so incredibly dependable, but our golden retriever puppy was having trouble learning "sit". About 8 years later my parents had gotten a Rottweiler puppy and had begun working with a trainer for him. It was at this point that I was able to see dog training for the first time, and I've been practicing and learning as much as I can about it ever since.
