LEAD YOUR DOG
Bri’s dog training roots began in Kansas City, MO. After working in vet clinics and operating as management at boarding and daycare facilities, she embarked on a dog training apprenticeship with a KC veteran dog trainer, Mary Sellaro. With a couple of years apprenticing under her belt, she then joined forces with a KC based small business, Dogs Listen to Me, where she interned for a short while before becoming a full time trainer. With a growing clientele, Bri began to find her niche within behavior modification and focused her efforts from private lessons and classes to board and trains. Bri began to focus her energy on her new found placement in the dog world and it was then that Lead Your Dog came forward.
After accruing a small battalion of dogs herself, she also helped with the organization Scholarly Strays, a foster company that trains and adopts out shelter dogs, taking one of their ferals in herself who has become known as Pavlov the Brave.
After officiating the business and operating in the Kansas City, Missouri and Kansas areas, Lead Your Dog and Bri hit the road for a relocation to southern Missouri. She now runs Lead Your Dog out of Joplin, Missouri and services the four states area. Still centering her training philosophy in balanced dog training, she specializes in behavior modification and obedience for dogs of any size or age.
Bri has five dogs and she can almost always be found with one or more by her side.
