"As a baby I was bit by my poodle, and quickly learned the power of the dog. Despite that as an only child growing up in a household where my parents constantly fought, my five dogs made me feel safe. This was where my bond with dogs was first created, and I have been personally training dogs ever since 1975. I am here to serve the world and make people's lives greater by ending the dog biting crisis." -The Wolfkeeper4Life€
