Lindsay joined the PIP family in June 2018 as one of our kennel and daycare workers. After working with the pups for a few months, she decided to go back to school to become a dog trainer. Lindsay wanted to make a positive impact on the lives of dogs that needed it and help strengthen the bond between the dogs and owners. Previously Lindsay worked in an office setting, received her bachelor’s degree in business, and is now certified by Animal Behavioral College for dog training, and dog and cat CPR and pet safety. You can find Lindsay out in the play yard or in PIPs training programs.
