Laura joined the All About Dogs team as a Kennel Technician in September 2015, expanding her duties to Taxi Driver and teaching group dog training classes.
Pam started working at All About Dogs in 2009 offering her Reiki and Canine massage services but soon she expanded her job responsibilities into the daycare. Spending time with the dogs and watching how they interact led her to learn more about canine body language and behavior. Being a regular in many types of training classes such as agility, Rally-O and obedience with her own dogs she felt the desire to learn to teach training classes and help other dogs and their owners build positive relationships. She mentored with a local trainer for over a year while continuing to read and learn all that she could. She has been teaching classes at All About Dogs since 2012.
