What is your business? In-home dog training service specializing in obedience and service dog training.
Who are your clients? Anyone with a dog! I have had many opportunities to train service dogs for clients with various disabilities such as PTSD, diabetes, autism, and mobility issues.
What inspired you to become an entrepreneur? I truly enjoy both helping people and working with animals! This business allows me to do both.
Short term goals? I want to help dog owners become aware of how important training is not only for the health and well-being of their dog, but also because of how it can improve the owner’s home life.
Business win? I recently had a former client contact me to tell me how well his service dog behaved at a theme park. Follow up from clients is always a huge win for me because I know that the owner (and dog) have both received a positive training experience.
Why Lakeland? Lakeland is actually my hometown. It’s a great town that’s continually growing. I love seeing new businesses move in and bring some cool changes.
How has Catapult helped you? I participated in Catapult’s Boot Camp course, which was a game changer. Catapult has also provided a lot of networking opportunities that I wouldn’t have had without being a part of the Catapult community.
