Rebecca has a passion for working with animals and sharing her knowledge with other people. Since 2012 Rebecca has been an active board member of a Madison based non-profit dedicated to education and conservation of reptiles and amphibians. She has given presentations to groups both large and small and especially enjoys events geared towards educating children. Through training her own dog, Phoenix, at The Thinking K9 she realized she had a passion for dog training. Having taken every class offered, and many more than once, she is always eager to learn more about the subject. Rebecca was excited to start shadowing Barbara in 2019 by assisting in puppy classes and anywhere she could be needed. In addition to shadowing she also tries to expand her skill set by attending seminars, reading books and watching training DVDs. Rebecca and Phoenix recently earned their Trick Dog Grand Champion Title and are actively working on obtaining nosework titles.
