THE PUPPY CARE COMPANY
Why did you start your business?
I was a horse trainer… I decided to take a break to go back to school to study painting & drawing, 10 years later I moved to California and took some time off. I stayed active walking dogs part time & decided to get online to see what new training techniques I could learn, I was amazed at how little was similar to what I had learned 20 years prior and I dove into getting certified as a reward based trainer.

What are some hot tips in training a puppy?
If you start training starting right when you get a new dog, it’s amazing the patterns you can build that will last a lifetime

What is your favourite part about being in the pet industry?
I love the Pet Industry. I’m a serial entrepreneur and have had many career shifts, the animal world is where I want to stay, it feels like home.
If you had one piece of advice to someone just starting out, what would it be?
Explore, Ask for help from colleagues, mentors & more. Focus/niche... find what you specifically love to do in your field, your joy will carry you.
What is your greatest achievement yet within the pet industry?
I thought that presenting at an International Conference on Canine Enrichment would be at the top of my list, but… it’s cliche & true that the ‘smaller' moments matter the most. Helping a pet parent shift their behavior which changes the dog's behavior, creating a better lifestyle for everyone are my greatest achievements. The commitment my clients put in to get astonishing results warms my heart every week, I feel so lucky to be part of the process.
What are your top 5 most selling pet products and why?
Currently my private online video training sessions and classes are the best sellers.
