In 2014, Dawn decided to take the leap and go to school to learn to train dogs professionally. The following year, Dawn graduated with a certificate from Animal Behavior College. Committed to growing her knowledge of dog training, Dawn started with MuttSchool as an intern/assistant in 2015 and through the years has advanced to the instructor level. Dawn has also spent time volunteering for Helping Hands Humane Society by training dogs with behavior issues that might have made them unadoptable.
For MuttSchool, Dawn teaches group classes and coordinates open gym.
