About me

Leslie started her journey with animals volunteering at local shelters and wildlife centers. She is currently working towards obtaining her certificate in professional dog training and cat behavior consulting.

Leslie is a Registered Veterinary Technician, Fear Free Certified Elite, and Low Stress Handling Certified - Silver. She recently finished apprenticing with local dog trainer Mardi Richmond from GoodDog Santa Cruz.

Leslie enjoys working with both cats and dogs and is passionate about training cooperative care and preparing pets for their veterinary visits. She has been working with animals for over five years and wants to help spread awareness that our pets can be voluntary participants in their husbandry and medical care, and possibly even enjoy it.  Plus training is fun!
