Trainer Janet Goodman has been working with dogs and their owners since 1987. Beginning with a guard dog rental service in St. Petersburg, Florida, her business quickly expanded to include selling trained dogs, working with law enforcement K-9s, and breeding. Her 2-acre boarding and training facility in Largo became one of the state's first doggie day care services.

Now located in the Miami area, she wrangles animal talent for TV commercials and magazine print work in addition to her training duties. Recently, she has widened her scope to include pet sitting and dog walking for her customers. Her PET TIPS THAT WORK section in the monthly publication, Greater Miami Shores Egret, ran for two years.


Look for her monthly column in the Biscayne Times - PET TALK.
