As Seen In

Creating K9 Lifeline®

I started K9 Lifeline® to save lives. In 1995, I moved to Utah and saw an ad in a local paper about helping at an adoption event in the mall. Unlike most dog trainers, I was not “raised by wolves” nor did I have a dog growing up, but what I did have was an empathy for all animals and I knew this would give me an opportunity to get involved. For the next several years I spent every waking moment working with shelters and rescues, fostering hundreds of dogs through my own home, learning everything I could to help the dogs be more “adoptable”. My passion had turned to purpose! When I moved from rescue into training, I found my true calling and have been able to “save” so many more dogs' lives by teaching their owners how to create better relationships and keep dogs out of the shelters. For many of the dogs we work with, it is a matter of life or death. I started K9 Lifeline® out of necessity. Dogs and their humans NEED us! They needed a safe place to socialize and simple and effective tools, techniques, and methods to help rebuild relationships. I started K9 Lifeline® to save lives.
