About Me (seniordogmom)

My dogs may see me as “Mom”, but I actually have an extensive dog-related resume going back over fifteen years.  I have worked at one of the largest animal shelters in the country; been an APDT-certified dog-trainer; managed/worked at Veterinary clinics; and even worked in research to help get a pain reliever for dogs to clinical trials.   120 more words
