When filming our videos this summer in San Francisco, we couldn't have done it without the help of Kathy Kukuc! She's a behavior and training staff member at San Francisco's Animal Care & Control and all-around awesome person. On set, she helped us get beyond cute puppies from ACC for filming, helped wrangle dogs and provided great feedback about the training content. It's no surprise, then, that Kathy was honored as the November Shelter Hero by Friends of Animal Care and Control.
Kathy and Lisa first met when Kathy needed behavioral help with her charming, young Jack Russell, Oliver. Kathy started coming to reactive dog classes, saw the change in Ollie's behavior and was amazed at how effective the positive reinforcement training techniques were. Kathy got so into training that she kept on taking more classes, went on to a training academy and is now a trainer herself. When we say "train your dog like a Pro," we're not kidding!
