Fun Fact: My family dog has no teeth left…his tongue hangs out of the side of his mouth!
Before I started working for Complete K9, I was set on becoming a Veterinarian Technician. I worked at numerous vet clinics for multiple years and even attended Northern College for their vet tech program, but quickly realized that it wasn’t how I wanted to work with animals. Thanks to Mary, I heard that a dog walking company was looking to hire a new staff member, and here I am 2.5 years later!
I started out doing individual walks as a K9 Nanny - just when I thought it couldn’t get any better, I was asked to be a K9 Pack Leader. I have been doing pack walks since fall 2016 and have loved every minute! I never envisioned my life to be running through fields with up to nine slobbery, tail wagging dogs at my side! I have learned so much about myself and about dogs, and continue to learn every day.
Finally in May 2017 my life changed for ever… I finally got my own dog. I adopted an 8 month old Border-Collie mix from the KW Humane Society. Her name is Maverick. She has had such a positive impact on my life and her training (thanks to Complete K9 training classes) has come so far. She loves coming to work with me because she gets to play with her fur-friends and meet new ones!
I have already met so many awesome clients and their dogs and look forward to meeting many more!
