Since 2005, I have been working with dogs. In January 2014, I established my own business, where I walk and train dog owners dogs. One of my first pet jobs through Care. com was to work with a family with two, 3-year-old Labradoodles. The dogs were having behavior issues when the owners were walking the dogs in their neighborhood (straining and barking at other dogs, not always walking at "heel"). After three sessions with the owners and the dogs, the owners said that there was a big improvement in their behavior. I really enjoy being outdoors and I walk dogs in the summer heat, the snow, and rain. Most of all, I love dogs. I am a retired licensed social worker (LMSW) with the State of New York. In the past, I worked for a reputable and renowned service dog organization in Westchester County, NY (from 2005-June, 2015). I trained service dogs for disabled persons with this organization.
