Victoria is an Accredited Dog Trainer (ADT) certified through the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants (IAABC). Additionally, she is a Separation Anxiety Pro Trainer (SA Pro), a Fear-Free certified professional, and a graduate of the Fear-Free Shelter Program.
Prior to joining Wag the Dog and Company in 2020, she worked for eight years managing a rescue and adoption program working with pit bull-type dogs where she dedicated herself to working with families under the mottos of ‘when you know better, you do better’ and ‘dog training is something we should be doing with our dogs, not to them’.
In her spare time, she manages support programming for a local dog-related non-profit organization and volunteers for the ASPCA & HSUS as a responder, working with dogs rescued from cruelty cases. Victoria lives with her husband and two fur kids, Tank and Penny!
