Amanda has always had cats and dogs in her life and after adopting her first fur baby in 2015, Frankie, she realized that Frankie struggled with some significant anxiety and fear issues. This is what initially drove Amanda to follow her passion for working with dogs. There is a special place in her heart for the misunderstood dogs that need a little extra patience and understanding. Amanda gives Frankie 100% of the credit for creating the dog training path she is on today.
