Cara Ricci, CCS began her pursuit into the world of dog training when she adopted her first herding dog, Valoo. Realizing he could probably beat her in both a physical endurance and an IQ test, she did heavy research on training and behavior in order to better understand and support her own dog. After volunteering at local rescues in her home state of California, Cara moved up to Washington and began an apprenticeship with Anne at DGGT. She then attended the Northwest School of Canine Studies (NWSCS) in Seattle, receiving extensive education on canine behavior and graduating with a Certificate of Canine Studies (CCS). Cara has worked with dogs of all backgrounds and has experience with puppies, deaf dogs, reactivity, fear aggression, dog/dog aggression, and task training for service animals. She is currently working towards her second certification from the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers (CCPDT).
