After 11 years of working with survivors of domestic violence I decided to make a change. I have always watched my friends dogs and finally got a furry friend of my own. I thought about what would make me happy while taking a break from the human service world. What started as a break became a passion. Working with dogs has been a fantastic experience. The relationship we have with dogs is unique and miraculous. I'm in awe of the way they are able to understand us and connect with us. I have genuine love for animals, concern for their health happiness and well being.
