We are thrilled to interview a very in demand dog trainer here in San Diego. We first met when two of our VERY treat motivated four-legged clients intentionally knocked over a fire hydrant treat holder at the pet store he worked. We were beyond embarrassed and he simply laughed calmly. These dogs vacuumed up the treats faster than the best vacuum on the market, and the rest is history. Now that we are collaborating in business, with our clients becoming his and vice versa, we would like to introduce you all to Joe!
Joe Bottcher is a certified dog trainer and founder of San Diego Canine LLC. His passion for animal science and helping dogs, has guided him over the last 15 years in the animal industry.
