“The idea GDFL was born 2005 when I attended animal behavior college to be a pet dog trainer. I started teaching classes at a major pet store in 2007 and went on to teach at a district level. Then I taught in Menlo parks Rec center while I gained private in home experience. I worked at Pets in Need (nor California’s 1st no kill shelter) from 2013-2014 and still contract out with them to take on their project dogs. I took GDFL full time in 2011 haven’t looked back since.”
