Delores loves working with people and their pups. While working with humans and canines, she’s witnessed first hand the joy that furry companions bring to our lives. She’s also seen how misunderstanding leads to unhappiness for person and pet. Blending her passion for the human-canine relationship with her professional, personal and volunteer experience, she’s ready to put her expertise to work for you and your pup!
