In honor of the great outdoors I appreciate so dearly, I’m committed to preserving the planet in my career as an animal behavior specialist and as a dog mom. I do so through my daily choices regarding how I treat the dogs in my care, from choosing eco-friendly toys to healthy choices in the treats and foods I feed. Little choices as simple as changing the way we scoop our dog’s poo add up to big changes for our planet!"
