JoAnne left a job in education to pursue a career as a dog trainer and found her way to BlueDog where we’re happy to provide her with such an opportunity! Jo is the proud mom of 4-footed children Neikko, an Akita, Jewel, a pit bull mix who recently earned her AKC Canine Good Citizen, and cats Morgan and Spike.

She’s also mom to 2-footed teenagers Andrew and Spencer. She enjoys scrapbooking, reading books, attending group walks with her pup Jewel, and watching Criminal Minds & NCIS. She recently completed Gail Fisher’s All Dogs Academy Instructor Training School, attended a two-day Sue Sternberg seminar, and plans to continue her education to become a dog trainer while walking pups for BlueDog!
