Meet Fran SchoenfeldLicensed Trainer

From my childhood, dogs and cats have been part of my life. As an adult, regardless of other home and career commitments, I always found time to care for many dogs and cats in my home. Often times, this included those of friends and family who appreciated the love and compassion that I had for animals.

Having a B.S. in Human Resources Management and working in this field for many years, I acquired the people skills needed to facilitate the training of dog guardians, so they could learn how their dogs think and process information. Ultimately, dog guardians provide the day-to-day training to their dogs.
