in life is to feed my hunger for knowledge of the animal world by surrounding myself with other pet professionals and pet owners. I learn from all of them and use that as I strive to bridge the gap of communication between my clients and their animals.
is to teach pet owners and pet care professionals and to provide the resources for them to not only care for their pets, but also be able to communicate with their pets on a level of mutual respect where each truly understands the other.
Dogs and cats do not speak English. They speak Dog and Cat. You each have to learn to be bilingual to empathize and discover how the other species navigates their world.
That’s where my passion lies.
